get d 4 mn n a dog cd sum1
This is one of my favorite tunes to play. Again I gave no ornaments, I figure that cam come later in discussion. Anyway I learned this as "Do You Want Anymore" and play it on (gasp!) the recorder, ‘cause it’s just so much fun, & makes me look like I’m playing faster than I am. :) I didn’t know there was another name for it until I heard Cillian & Niall Vallely play it in concert as a reel… the Collier’s Reel. Niall swears a lot of people play it but he can’t remember who. Both versions are great. I’ve noticed that all the copies I can find online are very different from what we play, so I thought I’d share this way.
The Collier’s Jig
Here’s the standard version of the tune:
E|FDF A2B|cAd cAG|Ad^c d2e|fed cAG|

e|fdg fd^c|Add ^cde|fdg fd^c|AB^c dfg|

You can listen to the beautiful trio playing of Claire Keville, John Weir and Eithne Ni Dhonaile: http://www.custysmusic.com/mall/CustysTraditionalMusicShop/claire_keville.htm
Not a jig on Windy Gap
Laurence Nugent plays the reel version on The Windy Gap, not this version. It’s accredited to him on the details as a jig.
Just a silly detail.
Love the tune - often comes (as a reel) up in Lancaster session. Might try upsetting everyone by launching into the jig instead.
Colliers Jig by Barry Kerr
Here’s the version of Collier’s from this youtube of Barry Kerr and Ruben Bada.

the melodic contour is reminiscent of Garrett Barry’s http://www.thesession.org/tunes/544 (indeed the last bars of the 1st part are the same)
