Alto horn sounds like a French horn. I don't know how stupid or accurate that sounds so sorry if it does sound stupid.

Stephen H (3 months ago)
Okay but why does he put an inflection on the word "drum" as if there were more instruments to come afterward?
Chris Nowak (3 months ago)
Wow. Quality sounds and quite "in-tune." High tech for the times.

What song did he play when he played the over the shoulder cornet?

For some reason, rotary valve instruments just sound so much cleaner to me. They arent crisp and precise, but rather smooth and very, well, sweet
Max Hennessy (4 months ago)
So you all watch a free video by an expert and versatile musician, which tells us a lot about civil war music, and all you can do is complain about his drumming, which is probably authentic for the times, and his cameraman, who just may be a little shaky at one point. You all need to go back in time, serve in either side in the Civil War, experience a little hell on earth, and man up.

2:30 Blood Upon the Risers ! "He was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright, he checked off his equipment and made sure his pack was tight, he had to sit and listen to those awful engines roar, you ain't gonna jump no more." I instantly recognized it lmao.

Cringe Committee (9 months ago)
As part of someone’s senior project, a Civil War band came in and played a bunch of traditional music with these instruments! It was so cool.

steelfire (10 months ago)
The over the shoulder cornet reminds me of the top part of a trombone. Like if you just stuck your mouthpiece in the part with the bell and set the slide aside.

How much is a hornet?
I’m not sure but I was looking at bees yesterday and the most expensive I came across was 50.00. I’m pretty sure hornets are more expensive though

That can’t be the way they played the drums back then😂😂
ZoroarkWarrior (7 months ago)
Walker McDill it is certainly not. They did have it to the side like that, and used traditional grip, but he was really bad at it.
stanfoo (1 year ago)
he did very good on every instrument but the second he touched the snare and played i saw that everthing was atrocious :( Marching snare and tenor may not be your thing xD

Why is it that you can dress up like a union soldier but not a confederate soldier.
Confederates believed in slavery
c karav (1 year ago)
I mean he obviously isn't a tuba or a percussionist but he played all of the high and middle brass extremely well.
Oofdemoofers 445 (2 months ago)
“He obviously isn’t a tuba.” I agree but It made me laugh how you said he obviously isn’t a tuba.
TheEggburglar (3 months ago)
trombone and euphonium are part of tenor brass
Super Zed (3 months ago)
No such thing as middle brass Only high and low brass exist
Danny McGowan (1 year ago)
