CURLY LOCKS [2], THE. English, Jig. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB.

Source for notated version: the 1800-1802 music manuscript book of ship's fiddler William Litten, about whom little is known, save that he was a crewman aboard the H.M.S. Gorgon in the British India fleet, en route to China. His manuscript was brought to Martha's Vineyard island, Massachusetts, by Allen Coffin of Edgartown, a seafarer, although how it came into Coffin's possession is unknown.

Printed source: Huntington (William Litten's), 1977; p. 30. Wilson (A Companion to the Ball Room), 1816; p. 104.
