Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This tune comes from fiddler Harvey "Pappy" Taylor (1894-1987), of Effingham, Illinois, collected by the late Gary Harrison. I made this practice tape in 2011, playing my 1964 Ode Model 42, in a G variant tuning (gDGAD), capoed on the 2nd fret.

Really beautiful, Don. I can imagine soldiers marching to this, perhaps on a long march where each is readying himself for the battle to come. Why do you think it has two titles--Bonaparte's Retreat and also Bell's March?

Sorry, I meant Bonaparte's March and Bell's March.
