This is a popular song of the American Civil War called "When Johnny Comes Marching".
I have prepared this easy version for beginners. You will play solo and fingerstyle accompaniment with alternating bass.
As you can see in the video, for the chords I put the palm of my right hand on the sixth, fifth and fourth strings.
This allows me to get a more beautiful sound for the accompaniment.
Perform the song very slowly at first, then gradually increase the speed until you master the technique.
