SIR GEORGE RODNEY'S MARCH. AKA and see "Admiral Howe’s March." Scottish, March (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The march is attributed to George Muschett by James Manson in Hamilton's Universal Tune Book vol. 1 (1854, p. 145). However, it had been printed more than fifty years earlier by Glasgow musician James Aird in his Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, vol. 5 (1796) as "Admiral Howe’s March."
