Multi part reels and jigs

Multi part reels and jigs

Hi!
I realised that my favorite reels and jigs were always with 3 or more parts.
So I’m looking for some multi part reels and jigs, could you guys help to make a list of them?

Most of my favorites already posted but I could add these - Jenny’s Welcome to Charlie - Kid on the Mountain -Jig of Slurs - Strayaway Child - Craig’s Pipes. You didnt mention hornpipes but Johnny Cope is a cracker - I can’t actually remember how many parts it has but I’ve never successfully learnt them all!
