    Martial music for the marching men

    My 3x Great Uncles, who served in Pennsylvania regiments during the war, might have listened to some of these march tunes, while campaigning in the Carolina's, Camping near Gettysburg, Fighting in Virginia, Guarding Washington or Marching through Kentucky.

    Yes I like that one too, esp the harmonics with the flutes in the chorus. I also think the last one (Paddy on the Handcar/Ed Kellogg's March) is killer as an instrumental. If I could play that "Melodic Style" on the banjo, I'd be "Da Man" at the jam next Saturday! Thanks.

    I use to pick the banjo, too, but sadly my fingers don't move well enough to do it anymore. Arthritis ruined that for me, so I gave my banjo to my son.

    I love banjos, but given my skills, I would sound better banging pots and pans together.

    When I was a little tyke, I remember my granddad would put me on his shoulders and we'd head out for a hike. He would also sing songs as we strolled along. One of the songs he sang was goober peas and I asked him why he sang that song and he said it was his favorite marching song over in France during his time in WWI. Later in life I looked up the origin of that tune and found it goes back to the time of the civil war. I'm sure those fellas back then in 1864 enjoyed singing that song as much as my grandad did as they marched along.

    Hope ya don't mind me adding one more historic civil war marching tune. I guess they no longer allow garryowen played at the Battle of the Little Bighorn reenactments anymore, due to that fact that Custer's army marched to it before he attacked previous other Native American camps. Then there was the last and final time it was played by his troops there in Montana just before that forever to remember event in American history in 1876.
