Default American Patrol March

I was watching the TV series on the Roosevelt's a while back when a familiar march was being played in the background. I had to ask my wife what it was, and she said "You probably played it in junior high school; it's 'American Patrol.'" I got intrigued about whether I could arrange it for guitar.
After some effort, it happened. I took a whack at it here. (I'm not sure I could do it again.) If you would like a PDF, let me know and I'll email it to you.

Also takes me back to my marching band days! I hated memorizing that stuff, the saxes played a lot of harmony so you couldn't just fake it by approximating the melody like those show off trumpet players .

I'm glad to see you posting here, El. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

I played clarinet into college, but always wanted to play trumpet, and still listen to a lot of trumpet music on YouTube.
