Parsley’s Hornpipe – a new melodeon tune by Clive Williams’s Theme of the Month for June 2010 – Write a Tune!

I wrote this tune about an hour ago! I was meaning to write a clever 5 time waltz, but somehow this old English-style hornpipe came out instead.

The opening phrases bear more than a passing resemblence to Jim Boulton’s Fancy (I did a search!), but that’s coincidental – I’ve never actually heard JB’s before.

Played on a 1 row Hohner 114 in G.
