Strathspeyers,

I have yet to see it as a 'bonding opportunity' when I as a musician
have occasionally forgotten the second chord. I am amazed I have
survived some of the daggers that have been fired in my direction by
supposedly 'friendly dancers'!!!!

I'm still convinced that "one chord" eliminates confusion, avoids an
unnecessary non-dance movement and allows an elegant bow and courtesy to
begin the dance.
