Among American Indians a young man got his eye on a girl and he would make a reed flute and compose a melody. And when she came down to get a pail of water at the brook, he would hide in the weeds and play her his tune. If she liked it, she followed and saw where things led… it was her special tune. –The World in Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Created Human Nature by Daniel J. Levitin
