Transcription of a Somalian oud piece


I tried transcribing a Somalian oud piece from this Youtube video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTA6INkUpu8

It's my first time doing something like this so there are probably a few mistakes, the rhythms in particular go a bit over my head. The oud in the video is tuned to Bb-Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-B; the transcription is written a semitone higher than sounding as if it were BEADGC. As I understand this is the standard tuning for Somalian oud playing, I know almost nothing about it but the sound is awesome to me so I wanted to learn to play a song or two.

Hopefully someone here gets a kick out of this, enjoy.
