    Maybe you heard it 1,000 times as a kid, like I did.

    Maybe, but it definitely was not played at my house... perhaps a commercial or something.

    That could have easily been used in a cartoon like Tom and Jerry

    Searching through YouTube, I found Al Hirt's recording, which is definitely the one I remember. He was local, so it probably did get used on TV a lot.

    @memorex for the win. I came back to this thread, as I found myself humming that melody after reading / playing it earlier today.

    Chances are, I played that piece in school and just don't remember it.

    It is miles away from my kind of music, but it IS catchy.

    Nah, memorex nailed it as "Bugler's Holiday", but it does bear a passing resemblance to Hogan's Heroes.

    Nah, we figured it out; it's "Radar Love" by Golden Earring.

    I read music but there's too little to go on.
    to definitely recognise it.
    It's c major ( no sharps or flats shown and each bar is in 4/4 time. That's all I can say. If that guy's Dad recognised it strait away he' s a genius from such a small ( 4 bars) sample.

    @micpoc - that tune is still stuck in my head this morning. Thanks for that. I only played the video clip for about 10 seconds too; that tune burrowed into my brain and stuck quickly.

    I definitely think I've played that back when I was in school.

    I can read music, just not for guitar. I was humming it to myself way too slow.
