KINGERY HORNPIPE. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Missouri. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB.

Source for notated version: Dr. Jimmy Gray (St. Louis County, Missouri), via Missouri fiddler Charlie Walden [Christeson]. Walden remarks that Gray was an oral surgeon (the inventor of Gray's Solution, used in treating gingivitis) and a fiddler who was in his 80's when Walden visited him. Walden says that Gray knew many unique tunes, and that "Kingery Hornpipe" was originally set in the key of 'A'.
