Keywords: Happy Birthday
Well, I finally got around to typing this up, and just in time for your Fourth of July. So I guess that makes it a birthday present. Thanks for Velcro, Stratocasters, and Dennis Miller, you imperialist dogs ;)
Warning - this is tough. And it's the easy part. Guy Van Duser does the whole thing on "American Fingerstyle Guitar", Rounder Records.
"The Stars and Stripes Forever" (excerpt) Guy Van Duser : arrangement, John Philip Sousa : Composer
This is the main melody - the bit children learn as "Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother"
