    Re: Two chords

    << ... the simplest solution is to put the first chord on its own track,
    with no break between that track and the rest of the dance ... >>
    
    Are you sure this would work?  I thought the musicians
    have said that they leave a longer gap than usual
    after the second chord before beginning the tune,
    to allow the dancers to settle into place.
    Following the solution suggested above, if the dancers
    are already in place so you want to go straight to the
    single-chord version, then there would be an over-long
    gap before the music begins.
    
    Possible solution not involving too much computer
    wizardry:  Have only one chord on the recording.
    If two chords are wanted, begin to play the track but
    stop it after the chord, then once the dancers have
    crossed over and settled, play the track again from
    the beginning.  ;o)
