I transcribed five more tunes off the "The Celtic Viol II" album. I checked and they all should be out of copyright, as they're all at least 100 years old. These are rally nice tunes, albeit with some difficult parts, but easily enough played on the violin.
I threw in Kerfunken Jig, which I learned from a YouTube video, courtesy Fiddlehed. If you haven't seen his videos, check them out. He plays the tune first, so that you know what it's supposed to sound like, then goes through it part by part and phrase by phrase very slowly, after which you button everything up and play the whole thing. In the comments, he also provides TAB notation for the whole tune. I don't even know his name, but he's a really great teacher. Enjoy!
EDIT: I just checked the "About" page on Fiddlehead's YouTube site and his name is Jason Kleinberg. He's based in San Francisco and offers Skype lessons, for those who may be inclined. All I know is he's really good and I thoroughly enjoy learning from his YouTube videos.
Thank you for this! I'm looking forward to checking them out
