Do you ever play "The Star Spangled Banner" or your Country's National Anthem on guitar?

    played it tonight as I always do... was a pretty messed up rendition. I started it and someone whooped and hollered across the street and distracted me.( I was on a patio at a lake bar with cottages around) I looked over and there was a woman in her yard with her hand on her heart.. when I was done an older guy walked up with tears in his eyes. told me he was a veteran and thanked me profusely for playing it. he then told me that was the best song I played all night and the best version of that he had ever heard ( again it was pretty rough, I think it just hit him) asked I could send him a copy of the video my wife took.

    Thanks so much for sharing that story. I'd LOVE to see/hear the video myself.

    Never done a rendition in front of an audience. Fooled around with the notes in what, 8th or 9th grade, somewhere around then.
