This one is also known as “The Battle of New Orleans”…we’ve got two guitar solos that would make both Ol’ Hickory AND Johnny Horton proud! Let’s start with a basic melody then beef it on up.
I must say Sir… I really like this version.
Planning to start learning it this afternoon.
Oh nice! This was actually one of my banjo lessons from 32 years ago that I was never able to conquer. It was nothing but melodic picking and I just wasn’t ready for it. I may have to go back and see if I can try it again.
I have a pdf and a tabedit version of this tune by Tony Rice,but can’t find the video.You covered his sixteenth and quarter note pulloffs if I remember correctly.
BTW, 8th of January WAS the start of the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, hence the association between the two names.
According to a plaque in the Ozark Museum (Mountain View Arkansas), this song can be traced back to England in the 1500’s.
Do you play all of the instruments heard sepreatly then put toghter and if so what softwear do and you use
Yep, I do and I use Logic Pro X for the audio recording and Premiere Pro for the video editing.
