TIP TOP HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see "New London Reel (2)," "Old Whaler (The)," "Way Down There." American, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was printed in George H. Coes Coes Album of Jigs and Reels (1876) where it is attributed to J. Sharpe. At least some of Coes' composer attributions are erroneous, and the name may simply denote a source for the tune rather than a composer. Coes was a blackface minstrel performer for some time, and many tunes in his collection are associated with minstrelsy. The tune was earlier printed by the blackface minstrel Buckley family in Buckley's Violin Tunes (1855) as "Way Down There" and Buckley's New Banjo Method (1860) as "New London Reel (2)."
