Title

Les Gotcher - caller talk, 1962

Description

Talk given by Les Gotcher to Tri-State Callers Association (New England) in March of 1962. Les emphasizes the importance of callers understanding the action of each call and describes early forms of diagramming. He also talks about tempo, timing and ends (beginning at about 14:22, three quarters of the way through) with a discussion of the call Hey. Gotcher says he discovered the call in the mid-1950s while reading a book of English country dances, and he describes the figure as an excellent way to teach timing; this should take exactly 32 beats.
