 Hornpipes are just so much fun to play.  Still couldn't get a good recording so there are a few places I drug out to remember where I was.  

 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Lovely job!  Love this tune - it was one of my first 'contacts' with folk music - we used to play it as a medley with the Boys Of Bluehill.

Really enjoyed it - thanks for this!

Great hornpipe.  Well done.  I used to like to play that one on my tin whistle.

@Uzi - thank you !   I looked down the list and hauled them into an ABC player - I like the Paddy Killoran one in the comments area.  It's a double-purpose thing - firstly I like the tune a lot, and I can also see it will give me some practice with the rhythm for songs such as these !   It's my weekend project ! LOL

Nicely played! I remember my dad playing that, but never knew what it was called.

I've already started learning it after hearing you play it. tongue

@1stimestar - see what you've started !  It looks like another party !  Yayyyy ! and @Jim Dunleavy - I found this quite "extensive" tuition video by "FiddleHed" on you tube - not just the tune itself, but some reasonable tips on bowing and "swing" notes -

@Jim Dunleavy ( and apologies to the OP - @1stimestar - I didn't want to start a new thread - my comments are "related" to your original post )

Yup - it's just about 4 hours later - and - I've "more or less" got it...  the actual tune is not in itself difficult ( initial-playing fluffed notes aside - well, you know what I mean ) - but the issue for me is "getting the rhythm" ....  I'll be working on it ! LOL  -

I've messed with only one other hornpipe before (Sailor's Hornpipe) - and as such - and I still don't really "completely get" the idea of the hornpipe - some seem to be actually "slow-ish" / rapid walking pace - some seem to be fast and furious - and their rhythms APPEAR to be quite different.... ???? ... maybe it's how I hear them in my head...  I just don't know...  Still got a lot to learn here...

And there also seems to be a lot of "discussion" about what "makes" a hornpipe... but frankly - I don't care  - if it sounds good - call it what you want and let's play it - who CARES !!!!!   What a journey of discovery !

Anyway - back to Sailors Hornpipe - the one I've "kind of" played" - we folks here in the UK really appreciate how they do that on the "Last Night of the Proms" and have such great fun with it - ( well, not played every year, but it is fairly commonly used in the Proms "Last Night" finale - it is simply "making music FUN for everyone" ) - and I understand that purists won't think much of it, and that's OK - but all the days leading up to that have been perfection itself - the conductor and orchestra are "letting-off-steam" - as well as the audience - so here's one of them -  - weyyyy heyyyy - Proud To Be A Brit !!!! LOL 

And - just for the Brits here - here is this year's schedule on the great BBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/r8.....2015-09-06 - a LOT of GREAT MUSIC out there....

[ Sorry OP - not a thread hijack in any way - it was YOUR inspiration that brought this about, it is appreciated - maybe I should kick-off a specific hornpipe party-thread, for those who can, and those who are trying...  aye, I'll do that]

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.

@1stimestar very very nice.  I love to watch you play!!!  I like your expressions and your play through it attitude.  I am unfamiliar with the piece, but I surely like it. I love that you posted and got us excited.

Most excellent!

@1stimestar - yup - been working on it- but "real work" kind of got in the way - here's a very quick "unrehearsed" version with the A and B parts played only one each - I was setting up the kit for a quick SJ perfomance to support Frankie's Jellypalooza day so I just crammed this in first - in fact I'm on in 5 mins...  I'll speak more about it later - feature=youtu.be - and thanks again for introducing me to this tune !

And Jim - go for it !
