Those are awesome! Thanks for posting. 

I'd like to learn more Mexican and Southwest tunes. The only two I really play regularly are Lilly Birdsong Mazurka and Purple Lillies. Bayou Seco in New Mexico have some nice recordings of traditional fiddlers and their own. I own two books of historical New Mexico tunes. One is Spanish American Music in New Mexico- The WPA Era. The other is Hispanic Folk Music of New Mexico and the Southwest.

I'm betting there aren't many resources for learning Mexican tunes. But I like to learn by ear, so YouTube recordings work for me.

Thank you for those links!
We have mostly Del Norte, music up here. It's great, but the fiddle and the accordion must share the spotlight. It great to see/hear the other ways the fiddle fits in the Music.
