Bonaparte Crossing The Rhine

Bonaparte Crossing The Rhine
Year: 2005
  • Description

I have always liked this old March.  The first time through I played 3 finger style like my grandfather Lloyd, then I played claw hammer and reverted to the 3 finger technique.  My grandfather was strictly opposed to claw hammer.  “Why do you want to play like that?” he asked, You need to pick a banjo not knock it!”.  I was just stubborn enough to keep knocking it, but just before he died, I learned his playing style.
