Admittedly, I have an obsession with Romany music...and collecting tunes (: 

I found a Romany/Gypsy music website, Zespół Čači Vorba that has a nice collection of sheet music posted, I wanted to share. The site is in Romani (?) or Romanian, but the page linked HERE has image files and some PDFs along with midis. I was looking for a particular tune, Tiganeasca, which is a popular tune played by Les Yeux Noirs, Parno Graszt, Taraf De Haidouks, Fanfare Ciocarlia, and others, which is "Ţiganeasca De La Pogoanele" on the site, and lucked into these. 

I also found this book, "Din vieata poporului român: culegeri si studii, Volume 1", on Google Books that has notated tunes. Again, the book isn't in English, but the tunes are written in standard music notation. I had to look up Romani music terms to find these.  

I play by ear, as well as read music, and with some of the more complex, faster tempo songs, especially those with a lot of ornamentation, and the many variations, I find having the base tune in notation helps me pick up on them faster. 

Enjoy!

Hey Quiche from your posts it sounds like you're a great violin player I and I'm sure many here would love for you to post some videos of you playing here on the forum. I'm just starting to learn Red Wing tonight and noticed that you mentioned on Barrys' thread that you play a pretty complex version of Red Wing...Would love to hear it.

Wow.  Great music site.

I have a certain deja vu when I hear that music.  Scarey!

Thank you Scott! I am probably harder on myself than I should be. Classically trained in school, I grew up in Music City, around intimidating recorded musician friends who had far more confidence than I, and that lack of confidence held me back for years (other than singing). I realize now, it was merely a confidence problem. I didn't play for a good ten-fifteen (?) year span, was severely depressed too during that time, but picked it back up five years ago (post-depression too). I play a pretty good fiddle (: I have been meaning to post a video (Red Wing would be fab!), and would be participating on here far more than I have been, but in my second year of an online Graphic Design bachelors program, bucking for an internship, the studio classes are increasingly more demanding. Thank you for the encouragement (:

Understandable (; Me too, actually, and it has propelled me further into my genealogy research for possible clues, especially those suspicious dead ends (;

I've got that bug too, and that is definitely genetic (: The Romany part- I suspect (:

Hi Loraine, thanks for sharing the link. Caci Vorba are very close to the authentic Romanian style. I love their midi archive and learning the "hora lautareasca" tune, plus am exercising Hanon on their rhythms. (I learned the violin when I was little but want to switch to accordion now, and also practice on a keyboard)

Thanks again, good luck playing the romanian style

Here is a demo on me doing Hanon practice on Tiganeasca de la pogoanele rhythm.
