Is there really such thing as a triple hornpipe?
I thought I had heard of it and might have wrote one, but it may be closer to some kind of French courtesan or folk dance, so-
Would it be 3 groups of 4 and 12/8, a bit like balafon or African music, though with the 4 groups less accentuated? Or does it usually reduce to 6/4 or 3/2? Can I tell from the melody without notation, if it is a 3/8?
This and any other questions I have yet to think to ask…?
