This hornpipe is fairly straightforward and repetitive, and shouldn’t pose much of a challenge. The only difficulty may be A-C# double-stops, that show up with the A on the third string and the C# on the second string, and also with the A on the first string and the C# on the second string. There isn’t much variation.

Devil’s Hornpipe starts at about 3:00 in the following YouTube video.
