This is a great version of an ol’ tune most everyone recognizes. Easy to learn, fun to play, and impressive to hear. Ol’ Hickory AND Johnny Horton would be proud!

This is definitely next on my list. The day I was born, Johnny Horton had the number song in the land using this same melody on the Battle of New Orleans. (Yup, I’m getting old). So I should have had it under my belt by now. Going to do it on both mando and guitar. I’ve yet to do any of the guitar lessons, it’s been strictly mando up to now.

Get after it!
