Tom Tulley's Hornpipe

I play this tune at sessions and it always makes me want to bop around the room for sheer joy! It's been around in tune books since the late 18th century, is sometimes known as "Tom Tolley's Hornpipe", and has a very "Handelian" feel to it. I'm playing it on tenor guitar lead with bass and guitar backing. I felt like standing up and "performing" this one, rather than just sitting and recording as usual - it's always felt like a bit of 18th century rock'n roll... It's played in G - capo on 2 and voiced in F. Play it LOUD, either through good speakers or headphones. You can get the music, tab and chords from my website:

Tenor guitar and mid-jumbo "No. 18" made for me by Ian Chisholm:

Actually, leeneia, if you want a score for this which is not arranged for tenor guitar, go to the Rude Mechanicals site and click the Tune Library" link. Barry and his two buddies - great musicians and friends - have scores of scores to download.

Thanks, Will. I found the sheet music on abcnotation.com, but I will check out the Rude Mechanicals.

The DH has pronounced Tom Tolley's "charming!"
