    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'!!!!
    
    Spare a thought for the poor musician, if and when they forget to play a
    totally unnatural second chord. We are only human after all, and should not
    be condemned when we make the occasional mistake just like most dancers.
