    These tunes come from Ryan's Mammoth Compendium, a book from the 19th century with more than 1000 fiddle tunes - the pdf is easy to find on the internet. I got out the bass guitar this AM to complete this project - hope you enjoy it.

    What are the tunes? I'm a fiddler and I have Ryan's and a few other tune books that are really fun to root through. I like your harmonizations.

    Thanks, King Creole. Here they are: Witch of the Wave, Welcome Here Again, Scotch Patriot, 'Neath the Moonlight, Tullochgorum Reels, all on Page 3 (out of 269 pages). I took the liberty of playing the first four dotted eighth note style.
