Watch the Soldier's Joy online guitar lesson by Cathy Fink from Clawhammer Banjo: Beginner Module 2

I have been in jam sessions with fiddlers & banjo players from all over the world and EVERYONE plays a version of this popular tune.

It probably has origins in the British Isles and came to U.S. popularity with Gid Tanner & the Skillet Lickers, an energetic and influential string band of the 1920's and 1930's. Find their recordings for some good old time music history.
