however, it is the way the figure was first described, but I do like

As everyone else has said it has never ocurred to me to drop hands on
bar 4 -- seems like an invitation to increase confusin as one person
in each cople gives a wrong hand and end up doing gate turns like in
English CD. Hmmm... a thought...but not a tournee
