GREAT question! I work with a large number of old time musicians here  
in the Bay Area, and they keep coming up with new old tunes. Most of  
the folx I know will quote who they learned it form, sometimes  
people, sometimes recordings, and it would be very cool to be able to  
look them up.

Thanks,

Lou
