Many scholars have tried to pinpoint the exact places in Dvorak's opus where the influences of American folk music are
evident to varying degrees of success. Some have come to the conclusion that the only American part of the piece is that it
was written in America.. However, American String Quartet's use of the pentatonic scale gives the music an open, free feeling
that gives it a folk music quality. The piece had a huge impact on subsequent composers who also tried to capture the open
feeling of American folk music in the quartet compositions, and has been given credit for influencing the musical scores for
movies, particularly Westerns, in the 20th century.
