Not exactly the same as the royal navies hornpipe, which cadets have to learn, but pretty good I think.

Yep!  Let's get back to the 4/4 time music & we actually need some PARTICIPATION for this Hornpipe Party, please! 🤭 

Dances have been titled Hornpipes, but according to the almighty Wikipedia, there's even some in 3/2 time, like "Lads of Alnwick" - a really fun tune (putting this on my MPL!).  @Jim Dunleavy - haven't you played this, want to join the Party? 

And, prior to the term "Slip Jigs", 9/4 & 9/8 times were considered Hornpipes - not for this Party, please. (lol)   Baroque period hornpipes also have some different time signatures. 

I know there's members out there that can play "The Harvest Home", it's a hornpipe - come join the Party! 

❣ A suggestion for Beginners - if you can play a scale, try "Northumbrian Hornpipe" (Last Of The Twins) - an easy hornpipe that's pretty much like playing a scale!  @JohnG ?

a hornpipe can also be a type of tune in 4/4.. (supposed to sound kinda bouncy...think of a measure of eighth notes and emphasis on every other eighth.. ) that can be played for a type of dance called a hornpipe.  that part ive seen on youtube   and not seen in person.. hornpipe tunes usually feel a little slower than reels.

  

Sorry, I wasn't trying to dispute the musical version of the word, just that the original instrument that was popular on ships gave it's name to the type of music played and I wondered what it looked like!

  

no need sorry...by your post i wasnt sure if you knew that info which was only reason i posted a reply.

Rough go here..intonation was yuck starting but think it got a little better.  So the first one you may find as a reel or march mostly and called bonaparte crossing the alps or napolean crossing the rhine or bonaparte crossing the rockies ( guy got around)   anyway...i tried to pull off playing as a hornpipe..jury is out on that. .lol

second tune is Mickey callahagns.  heard it played with golden castle on a P.J. Hayes and Martin Hayes album.  probably shouldve left it there but wanted to give it a go paired with bonaparte.  threw it all together at the wall to aee if would stick....modal minor into major i think lol

Hornpipes?

@GregW - 😆

Napoleon Crossing the Alps! 

I LOVED IT! 

Mickey Callaghan's, too! 

I LOVED IT! 

Didn't mean to make you feel rushed (but glad you did - lol). 

You nailed it! 

Not sure if I'm finally seeing Hornpipes, Reels, Strathspeys and Marches for

what they truly are, but (to me) ALL are just emphasized differently. 

Hornpipes always seem to have a little swing going. 

Reels, even - no dotted notes, Strathspeys jagged and Marches... what can I say? 

Thank you for helping to make this a GREAT Party!

...listen to, DeeDee's Air Force Squadron TRS320 marching to their "Jodys" (YouTube) - maybe everyone'll see why lines are so blurred for me. (lol)

@GregW -

LOVED your idea! 

Also, here's a great list of popular session Hornpipes with sound for people who don't know about them (irishtune site).

If everyone is out enjoying the sunshine, grab your Fiddle!

...btw, read hornpipes described as having "Swagger"!

I would like to join this party, I just have been so busy... 

I know absolutely nothing about hornpipes, but googled them a little. I found that ”Harvest home” for cello, maybe I should try it. 🤔

@Ilona -

That would be wonderful! 

I still need to record a few more. 

And, I have my eye on several more I want to learn!

Oh no ..... did someone mention Harvest Home ???  LOL - here's a short out-take of what it has evolved into for me.   I've kept it short, but tried to demonstrate / hint-at the various "interpretations" I use....   Rhythmically, it is (probably) just about identifiable as a hornpipe, although the melody itself should be instantly recognisable !

But I don't care - just love playing it !

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

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
