More about Yankee Doodle
A classic American tune.
Yankee Doodle, performed on a Clawhammer banjo in Double C tuning, is a timeless classic, traditionally played in two unique ways. The first arrangement is a deliberate, slower-paced rendition of the tune, focusing on the melody with delicate touches of ornamentation. The second is a faster, more intricate arrangement, incorporating intricate rolls and slaps to create a bouncy, syncopated sound. Both versions of the song provide a genuine, captivating experience sure to entertain any banjo enthusiast.
Yankee Doodle lyrics
Yankee Doodle went to town A-riding on a pony He stuck a feather in his hat And called it macaroni Chorus: Yankee Doodle, keep it up Yankee Doodle dandy Mind the music and the step and with the girls be handy! Father and I went down to camp Along with Captain Gooding And there we saw the men and boys As thick as hasty pudding. Chorus And there was Captain Washington And gentle folks about him They say he's grown so tarnal proud He will not ride without them. Chorus
