We have made such a thing out of passing left shoulder in our Branch area
that we now have problems remembering the exceptions, (Baldovan Reel,
Whistling Wind, Lothian Lads, Rest and be Thankful to name but a few).
It even becomes a problem in White Heather Jig, remembering to go Right
Shoulder after the first reel of 4 into Turn Corner, Partner. Perhaps
it is all these exceptions which led to the belief that there is no rule.
