Written in 1893 in Austria as a march, it’s become a flatpicking guitar standard. It was first recorded in America in 1935 by Bill Boyd & His Cowboy Ramblers. Others like Chet Atkins, Norman Blake, and The Country Gentlemen later put it to wax.

When you write "first recorded" do you mean "first recorded in the abridged version as a guitar solo?"

yes, I guess the original had an intro & more,, but I was thinking more in the popular music field.  Thnx

Gotcha... but it does not get more "popular" than John Phillip Sousa or Arthur Pryor.

Going for the old timey thing there was the Blue Ridge Highballers in 1926 playing the abridged version with fiddle as the lead.

Nice, Chuck. I learned to play this song from a floppy 45 sized insert in a record I bought back in the 70’s. Ah, nothing like playing by ear. Good old c, f&g

Thanks,Chuck.One of my first guitar tunes along with Wildwood Flower and Grandfather's Clock.
I made my Mom play UTDE at least 100 times while I was learning it.
I wish Apple ID would allow me to create an account.

Thanks, Steve. Wouldn’t it have been great if back then you could have video’d your Mother showing you how it goes. It would be fun & heartwarming to watch it today.

My first banjo memories (1960) are looking over my mom's shoulder as she played.She had stacks of sheetmusic and album books.She was a perfect sight-reader.

Lots of her books had banjo and guitar chord diagrams over the staff which allowed me to sight-read the progressions.Playing alongside a good piano player is still one of my favorite ways to play the banjo and guitar and I don't have to read the chord diagrams anymore.
