CLOG DOUBLE (Double Clog). AKA and see "Blueskin's Hornpipe," "Good for the Tongue," "Jenkin's Hornpipe, "Tumbler's Hornpipe (1)." French-Canadian, Clog or Hornpipe (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was recorded by Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1873-1947) for Victor Records in February, 1931. It was later re-released on the subsidiary Bluebird label in 1937, under the same title but listing Allard under his pseudonym, 'Maxime Toupin'. The tune is, however, a version of a 19th century British hornpipe called "Blueskin's Hornpipe," "Tumbler's Hornpipe (1)," "Jenkins' Hornpipe" and others, although Allard probably learned it from American sources, versions of which go by the title "Good for the Tongue" and others.
