DEER FOOT. AKA and see "Clarionet Hornpipe." American, Hornpipe. USA, New England. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. William Bradbury Ryan, editor of Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883), was an employee of the Boston-based Elias Howe publishing company, the printer of Ryan's collection. A number of tunes in Ryan's Mammoth seem to be taken from Howe's catalog of earlier publications, some were entirely new, and some, like "Deer Foot" are versions of tunes that appear in earlier Howe volumes, but which are not identical. "Deer Foot" is substantially a version of "Clarionet Hornpipe" printed by Howe in 1843, but the cadence of the second strain differs.
