    Re: Reels and Hornpipes

    I'm sure  I would notice if The Sailor, West's Hornpipe, and College Hornpipe
    didn't  have hornpipes as the music when I danced them.
    Me too.  But just as an experiment, take away the title of West's,  dance 
    those figures to John Howatt's Reel and see if it isn't great fun.   In fact, 
    just say West's, and use John Howatt for the music.  Although we  spend a lot of 
    time and energy fitting tunes to specific dances, I think there  are many 
    dances that would be just fine with a tune other than the specified  one, as long 
    at the other tune was of similar character.  After all, we  only use that 
    specified tune for rounds 1 and 8.
