Ignoring the flubs, am playing Off to California as in a hornpipe rhythm? Am  I exaggerating the rhythm?

Flubs aside, that's pretty much the hornpipe rhythm.  A hornpipe, does have a distinctive rolling/bouncy rhythm.  It's ONE two THREE four, ONE two THREE four.  Or if you prefer WAterMElon, WAterMElon...

Thanks!!  As I have been searching the internet for explanations I have heard so many say that most people aren't true to the hornpipe and "flatten them out."  I want to be as true as possible.

Yes, they are good!!

Good job.  I love hornpipes as they are just so much fun.  I'm playing one for my next recital.  

 

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

Yup ( LOL @flubs aside ) ahaha ! yup I think that's not bad at all ( and no - I didn;t think the rhythm was exaggerated - it is there, and WELL present) !   GO FOR IT !

GO FOR IT and enjoy !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG
