Week 10A Lecture Notes 12/5/05 Ballads and Folksongs folksongs : multiple existence, variations, judged to be traditional. Considered folk once it has been passed on informally from person to person. Now less folklore because pass on songs nowadays by professionals where less aspects change. Lots of times songs are named with a writer/singer, so not folklore. When changed enough for no one to claim it then more folk. -broadsheets: prints made of lyrics to songs so that so that people would know the words. These songs become folk when people re sing songs at parties -***song becomes folksong when passed on to others and rephrased into different versions, loses direct connection to original author, and becomes property of those who sing it. ***Become localized with style and nuances. Made to fit local norms. Each performance is different (ex. Sing half of it b/c group listening is getting restless). Not usually memorized word for word. Certain phrases remain same but the connections will change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
