GRANNY WILL YOUR DOG BITE? [2]. AKA and see "Camptown Hornpipe (2)," "Congo Prince Jig." American, March or Reel (2/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Similar in the first strain to "Granny Will Your Dog Bite? (1)." Bayard collected several sets of the tune, often as untitled reels (Seee his No. 56 & 57). He traced sets of the tune to Elias Howe's Diamond School for the Violin (c. 1867, p. 48). "Congo Prince Jig", from Thomas Briggs' 1855 banjo instructor, is alternate title, perhaps denoting Minstrel origins.
