This article was very insightful. A few changes that I would make is to add more evidence on the transitions of folk music to African Americans to White Americans. I would add at maximum to more African American folk artists. I think this would allow the author to dig deeper and give the audience a better understanding of the importance and transition of folk. Also, this might be asking for too much, but as a person who doesn’t know much about music, I wouldn’t know the difference between the “simple scales.” If possible, you could elaborate on that or give a comparison so that an audience could have an idea on what type of scales you are talking about. Overall, I would add more information in this article because I think it would give readers a better explanation of the true origin of folk.
