We haven't had a party thread for a long time!

For those new to the idea, it's just a place to post your videos on a particular subject, or sometimes just a specific tune.... and parties never end - so - no need to rush to meet the 4th of July deadline - just add a related tune any time...

Talking of not rushing, well I haven't got one done yet - although I have a couple in mind I may get around to in the next few days (probably after the 4th, no matter).   

Anyway, just to kick it off, here's a piece from 2017 !  

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

🙂 thanks folks... @cid    @GregW   @Mimi Aysha .... it's always fun, and looking forward to a few new takes once I get more free time. !

Although not native to the USA (LOL, my accent and humour kinda gives that away!) a few tunes come to mind, like Dixie, When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Glory Glory Hallelujah (if I got the titles correct) .

Any other suggestions of tunes traditionally played during your day/s of celebration (even just the name - no need to record anything) would be appreciated - may give me some more ideas !

You're a Grand Ol Flag...any of the military service hymns.. I.e. Marine Corps Hymn..anchors away..  Lee Geenwoods God bless the USA seems common.. Most of those safe now and days.  Dixie would be more common at a civil war reenactment. Can't say Ive heard it on the 4th.

Cool and thanks @GregW - yeah - I was bit uncertain about civil war tunes for the 4th.

I'll give these ideas some research and thought ....
