My first hornpipe

As promised long ago, here are the midi file and score for a wee hornpipe I wrote before christmas.  To be honest, I'm not sure if it sounds better as a hornpipe or played straight like a reel.  Either way, hope you enjoy it :)

  2. Nice tunes Mr Jones. Perhaps after the Spring Concert, when there are no Tuesday Guitar Group rehearsals, we could get together and run through them with some guitar accompaniment.

    In the meantime, you might be interested in checking out the Listen Again of mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile on Radio 3's World Routes:

    The programme opens with a nice tune from Galicia called O Santo de Polvera (perhaps a tribute to the patron saint of the dust buster?)

    This is his band's website: http://www.punchbrothers.com/

  3. That would be fantastic Alan, if it wouldn't be too tedious for you. I'm "Listening Again" now and very much enjoyed the first track.
