A lovely straightforward Shetland medium paced ‘listening tune’ tune recently recorded by Chris Stout. I have notated exactly the version in ‘Da Mirrie Dancers’ tunebook of 1970. "As played by A. Peterson. Written down by Larry Peterson".
Chris Stout plays the last two bars the same as the bars 3 & 4 of the first part, I think, as well as playing variations on the two opening Gs, but someone with a better ear can notate his version, which is what players of Shetland music will end up playing.

Hi Phillip.
Just hoping someone out there would have the notes to Colm Quigley written by Donnell Leahy.
It would be a great find.
