PINKELL'S. AKA and see "Sandy Buchanan's Strathspey." American (?), Strathspey or Highland Schottische. B Minor/D Major (Harding): B Flat Major (Howe). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune's provenance is unknown, however, it appears in several American publications, beginning with William William's A New and Complete Preceptor for the Fife, a revised edition of which was published in Utica, New York, in 1826. It seems likely that Boston publisher Elias Howe (1820–1895) obtained the tune from Williams' volume.

"Kellogg's Quickstep," or "Ed Kellogg's Quickstep," is a American Civil War-era melody that vaguely resembles "Pinkell's" and the two are sometimes compared, but the supposed similarities are fleeting and the tunes are not cognate melodies.
