PORTSMOUTH HORNPIPE [2]. AKA and see "Manchester Hornpipe (2)," "Midnight Dance (The)," "Milton Hornpipe (1)," "Old Tanglefoot," "Palmetto Hornpipe," "Prince Regent's Hornpipe (2)," "Ror Hornpipe," "Snowflake Hornpipe." American, Hornpipe (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The first strain is shared with "Mathewson's Hornpipe" (see note for "annotation:Mathewson's Hornpipe" for more). Curiously, Elias Howe printed a cognate version of the melody on the same page as "Portsmouth Hornpipe (2)," called "Prince Regent's Hornpipe (2)," which, although a bit more 'notey' is the same tune.
