GUEST,Folklorist folk music not suitable for the guitar? (119* d) folk music not suitable for the guitar? 14 Oct 04


I've been told that the guitar was not used in folk music before the 60s because it was not suitable. Why is that? If songs have chords and a tune, then it should be suitable for any instrument, including guitars?
