You've regaled us with a great story and some wonderful background Keith - and volunteered for something most worthy.
Good vibes.

Ah, nice, another ringer, and a far more experienced one than myself. I'm sure you can correct some of the errors I've made in my descriptions (and I'm fine with that if you do).

I'd see myself as the equivalent of having finished the Beginners Course in bell-ringing  ;)
You gave a pretty decent account of it and I didn't notice any mistakes.
 
I like the 'inclusivity' of it- everybody- including visitors- always welcome.
Our tower caters for pre-teens to octogenarians; three nationalities; absolute beginners to life-long ringers, including a blind ringer and her guide dog  :)

Did you see my June entry, Beelzebub's Bells, in the monthly competition section?
As you're a ringer, you might be interested in the lyrics (on the youtube page)
Feel free to turn them into a 'proper song' and share with your tower (and me!)

Ring on!

I have some photos and videos from today if anyone is interested in seeing the churchyard in less spooky circumstances than in my video.

@Brian Ah yes. I forgot about that song and video. When I first watched it, I had no idea that ringing was in my future. Good stuff.

At some point, I'll start to learn what things like "Plain Bob" and "Steadman" entail.

I'm still learning to do basic rounds reliably at the moment (which, just like guitar, is about practice) and have only briefly tried some very basic changes.

Full change ringing and methods are a little way in my future. At the moment, just watching and trying to follow experienced ringers doing simple call changes messes with my head a bit. I understand the concept, but the practice isn't so easy.

@DavidP thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I'm not going to post that more about the subject now, as this is a guitar forum and I'm sure people have had enough of this little diversion for the time being.

Cheers,

Keith
