    As a musician, I don't mind the extra chord one way or the other. Like Steve, 
    I do not play the same chord both times, so the »let's record the first chord 
    as an extra track on the CD« doesn't cut it. I also try to space the chords 
    in a fashion that will let the people in question cross to the other side of 
    the set with apropriate dignity. Furthermore, I try to be aware of which 
    dances require two chords, and my sets of music state this with suitable 
    conspicuousness. Having said that, my method is to go with the flow. As a 
    musician I provide a service; whoever pays me is entitled to pick whether 
    they want the chord or not. So far, most people do (but then again, often the 
    issue doesn't arise to begin with).
