Yea how many times do you get the dance that goes: NO circle right, and star right there is a logic there but circle right first? And not circle 'tother way next?

IMNSHO this is not the way to treat beginner. OK we ceilidhnauts get a little irked that our own anticipation was triggered by experience rather than listening/short term memory. But for beginners you are laying down those long term memories and dances that muck about with that don't help them.

Though it is not the be-all and end-all. Getting it right gives pleasure. And beginners need that lift.
