Use this playalong to learn how to play Listen to the Mockingbird on the viola. This popular American song sold millions of copies of sheet music around the time of the Civil War and was even used as marching music. The music was written by Richard Milburn and the lyrics by Septimus Winner.
Listen to the Mockingbird was featured in the 2004 movie, The Alamo, being performed by Davy Crockett, though the song actually hadn't been written during his life.
