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.
