Whenever I hear a good march, I immediately want to pick my banjo up, and join in ..... so after hearing a fine rendition of this march, played by the United States Air Force Band ..... yep, I got my chance t' join 'em!.
By the left, quick march ..........

ps Alexander Frame Lithgow (1 December 1870 in Glasgow – 12 July 1929 in Launceston, Tasmania) was a Scottish-born, New Zealand and Australian based composer and bandleader known as the "Sousa of the Antipodes".

Nice march, Don! I love that kind of music, which is somehow related to the early jazz. Sometimes I enjoy playing "Maryland my Maryland", as well as the "Whashington Post March".

You have one hell of a good touch on that banjo Don. Perfect.
