According to the existing research, with modern urban civilization continuously extends into traditional rural society, the survival environment of traditional national culture is suffered from the impact of various aspects, including development of new media technology. However, in the process of the technical urbanization, Liuzhou folk songs have no depression from the impact. On the contrary, because of new methods to be imported into its inheritance, Liuzhou folk songs are presenting a boom. The fieldwork found that Liuzhou folk song inheritance is experiencing shift which is from the traditional mentoring to medium teaching in the process of the modernization. These media include textbooks about folk song creating, improvised dish homemade by singers, the network video resources, and network spontaneous learning community through QQ group and other social software. The active medium use to make folk heritage can adapt to the environment change, and make folk heritage for innovation and development. That has a certain advantage. But in other hand, there has been some limitation that because of the excessive emphasis on written rules and figures of speech, it should have a certain damage on the bearing cultural connotation of Liuzhou folk songs. People should pay more attention to it.
