Here's an old Scottish/English/Irish folk tune. Strictly speaking it is a rant, not a hornpipe.

Hi Frank

I like your arrangement of this tune. If I'm not mistaken I think Robin Laing sings an unaccompanied version of it called 'Tall Tale' from his album 'The Angels Share' An amusing ditty about drinking whisky. Have you any more of this sort of stuff up your sleeve. I love it!

Thanks for this tune, Frank. I must have missed it when you first posted.

Glad you liked it, Ed and Herb!

I've just posted another Irish folk dance, the doulbe jig "Cat In the Corner" at http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=75079. It's quite a lot more old-fashioned and may be less appealing to lovers of modern traditional music but I hope you like it anyway.

I hadn't heard of that version before but it doesn't surprise me. "Gilderoy" is one of those icon English/Scottish/Irish folk tunes that everybody have their own version of.

Thanks for pointing me to your double jig Frank. It's fun to play, and although you caution about playing it too fast, I do like to pump the speed up now and then on these sorts of tunes. Would you add ornaments when you play these kinds of tunes?

Everybody do and there's nothing wrong with it as long as you don't play for dancers.

Me? Nah, I'm too lazy. Others would though although it seems Irish folk guitarists tend to use less ornamentation than banjoists and mandolinists.

Here's another one with some written ornamentation:
