Gemima

A reel by Ross Couper.
I first learnt this tune back in 2007 at the Shetland Fiddle Frenzy, when it was in D (see X: 2) and called, I think, "Jemima" with a J. By the time of "Fiddle + Guitar" (by Ross and Tom Oakes) in 2017 it had moved to A and the J had become G.
In the B part, Ross sometimes plays a low D in place of the rest at the syncopated bit.

Gemima, X:2

In D, as I learnt the tune originally.

Gemima, X:3

X: 3 is actually how I originally learnt this tune (in 2007) with an extended 2nd time ending to the B part.
