HJL was a popular and prolific composer whose compositions date from 1900 until 1936. This is the 10th Lincoln tune that I've arranged and the 6th of his marches. It's a corker of a tune and is well worth a look and listen. It would probably have worked better written as a duet using a banjo second however, by using plenty of second voice on the score and bass solos, I've plugged the gaps that would have been played by a second and overall it works very well. The score and midi are in the library.

Hey Steve, this is a cracker!  A proper Classic Banjo March with loads of oomph!

A must for everyone to try. It could have been written for the banjo.

Here is the audio..  See if you can listen without tapping your feet :-)

AMERICAN EMBLEM arranged by Steve Harrison

As Steve said the score is available FREE in the MUSIC LIBRARY.

Thanks Ian, Lincoln's other marches come pretty close to this one for playability, Bo Peep march in particular is worth a listen...Steve.

Excellent playing and another great March from H J Lincoln. 

It always good to see the Banjo King and Prince of France playing classic banjo. :-)
