ok, let me specify, i think most "pirate" type sounding music is either minor or major in construction (i can't think of a pirate song that falls outside of those 2 scales ie phrygian etc etc) at least most that i have heard, also what plays a key part in it is where the beat lands. listen to and learn some folk music that relates to it and you'll begin to see where it comes from, thats probably the best advice there is .

To sound like a pirate, play cliched waltz figures (3/4 time, strong baroque sound should due) extremely sloppily, as if extremely drunk

sing in a tom waits voice

and try to find an accordian player for accompaniement
