Under The Double Eagle is a guitar picker’s classic.  It was the first Bluegrass tune I ever taught myself from reading tablature to play on the guitar. I spent two months of my spare time in the summer of 1976 trying to master hammer-on’s and pull-offs so I could play along with my neighbor who was from the Blue grass state and who introduced me to bluegrass music. A lot of fond memories for me that summer. I never quite mastered it  like my neighbor or Willie but had fun trying. Thank you MaVolta for your post.


That's a great story! Thanks for sharing. I doubt that anyone can pick it like Willie, and this is his original "slow" version. He also does a faster one!

From the country bluegrass genre -

 

Under the Double Eagle - Willie Nelson version

Interesting side note - The original composition is a military march by Austrian composer, Josef Franz Wagner, 1893. He was known as the Austrian March King.

This one played almost every morning on the radio when I was a kid. I still love it.

From the pop music genre - remember this one from 1968? It went to #1 on Billboard's Hot 100, and stayed there for 5 weeks!
