DO YOU WANT ANYMORE? (B-fuil A Tuile Uait?) AKA and see "The Collier's Jig." Irish, Double Jig. D Mixolydian (O'Neill/Krassen): D Major (O'Neill/1850 & 1001). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is sometimes called "The Collier's Jig" because of its similarity to "The Collier's Reel," says Paul de Grae. There are some melodic similarities to "The Frieze Breeches" as well. The tune was in the repertoire of Clare accordion player Bobby Gardiner.

Source for notated version: "Cronin" [O'Neill]. O'Neill obtained the jig under the "Do You Want Anymore?" title from Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin, a highly skilled fiddler who was, unfortunately, a somewhat difficult person with whom it was difficult to maintain long-term relationships. O'Neill obtained many tunes from Cronin, whom he visited often for several years, until the two had a falling out. Cronin was born in Limerick Junction, County Tipperary, in the 1840's.
