A few weeks ago I picked up my Mel Bay book and came across  a  exercise piece called a Sailors Hornpipe. It seemed like an interesting 5th position tune. I finally figured it out. Then I asked myself what’s a horn pipe? Having spent 4 years in the Navy I had never heard the term, I though maybe it was something like a busun pipe to boatswain whistle.Well curiosity got the better of me,so I googled it.

Interesting background.     I think most everyone simply associates this tune with the old "Popeye" cartoons!

The UK TV show Blue Peter has used two hornpipe tunes as its theme tune, one of which is the Sailor's Hornpipe.
