FAVORITE SCOTCH HORNPIPE. AKA - "Scotch Hornpipe (1)." AKA and see "March of the Third Regiment of Guards." Scottish, Hornpipe (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Bayard): AABB (Cole, Miller & Perron): AA'BB (Kerr). A generic title--there are many "Scotch/Scots/Scottish Hornpipes." The "Favorite Scotch Hornpipe" or "Scotch Hornpipe [1]" was printed in various mid-to-latter 19th century publications of the Elias Howe music company and its successors (including White's Unique Collection and Cole's 1000 Fiddle Tunes). The "London March" shares the same first strain, but differs in the second strain. Bayard (1981) says the title "Scotch Hornpipe," joined to versions fairly close to these, became common early in the 19th century. The earliest version found is in James Aird's Selections of Scotch, England, Irish and Foreign Airs, vol. 3, (No. 593, in three parts) published at the end of the 18th century, where it appears as "March of the Third Regiment of Guards." The first strain is also similar to the American old-time tune “Dubuque.”
