George G. Bruce was an American drum major during the Civil War, best known for co-writing The Drummer's and Fifer's Guide with Daniel Decatur Emmett.[1] The Guide was published in 1862, and remains well known as a source for music for the fife and drum. Bruce was a player of the drums, banjo, violin and mandolin.[2]

His work influenced Sanford A. Moeller of the Moeller Method of drumming.
