A hornpipe I’ve just written tonight, and played on a Hohner 1 row in G – named in honour of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array telescope just gone live in Chile today. Part of melodeon.net’s Theme of the Month for March 2013, Hornpipes
Category: One Row G
A reasonably straight version of the traditional English hornpipe, the Steamboat. Played on an old Hohner 4 stop 1 row in G. This tune seems to suit a one row melodeon very well for some reason.
Played as part of Melodeon.net’s Tune of the Month for November 2010 – goto melodeon.net to see lots more versions.

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.
