This diagram shows the order of work in the method. The accompanying table shows the first few changes in the method and the first work you do as you move around the circle.
|3||One blow in 3rds then In to Lead||(3)32LL234..||4/5 Down|
|4||Dodge Up to 5ths||(4)5432LL2..||4/5 Up|
|5||Dodge Down to 4ths||(5)455432L..||3rds|
The 2nd bell is also a hunt bell, it starts by going into the lead and then plain hunts. As a signpost, it rings after the treble on the first blow in 5ths place, and again as it comes down from the back, in 2nd place before leading.
This table illustrates how you will be affected if the conductor calls a Bob or Single. My free software the Method Tutor on the Learning Menu may help you to practice Grandsire Doubles at home. The method diagram was drawn with another free program of mine Method Workshop which may also be found on the same link.
