hornpipe is 4/4 just like a reel except there's more of an emphasis on the 1st and 3rd beat. Also played a bit slower than a reel :)

To remember the beat for the Irish dances you could say: Jig: Rashers-n-sausages, rashers-n-sausages. Reel: Black-n-decker, black-n-decker. Hornpipe: Humpty-Dumpty, Humpty-dumpty
