You might find it useful to count "1, 2, 3, 4" to yourself during
each row, emphasising the number on which you are going to ring. So
if you are ringing bells 1 and 2, you might say
" 1 , 2 , 3, 4,
1 , 2 , 3, 4,
1 , 2, 3 , 4,
1, 2 , 3, 4 ",
Try to remember in which position you are going to ring on the
current row whilst working out in which position you will ring on
the next row, using the path to help you work it out.
Don't try to remember the lines of numbers: it's too
If you remember that you are ringing in positions 1 and 2 on one
row, don't think of the
positions on the next row as 2 and 1 (or you'll forget to ring in
position 1!). Instead, think of ringing in positions 1 and 2 but
the other way round (that is, with the bells in the other order).
Then you'll remember which bell has to go first.
