    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.
