Old-Time Fiddle Tune PDFs - Rich Crew's Tune Book

There are a lot of places online where you can find the sheet music notation for fiddle tunes, but one I'd like to point out is Rich Crew's Tune Book.  Rich's list represents what gets played in North Georgia, but it overlaps quite a bit with the tunes I hear people play in Central Virginia.  Each link points to a PDF file for the tune.

These include:
Bull at the Wagon

As Rich says, "the written sources are only a rough indication of what actually gets played. I have made only the most minimal indications of double-stops, and have omitted the unisons, slides, and other noises that are an essential part of the Southern fiddle tradition."
