   Here are some method lines, in .pdf format. Chris Poole also has a different collection on his website.

The lines were created using Martin Bright's excellent method printer.
Some lines

  • All treble-dodging minor grids
    (All 729 possible distinct treble-dodging minor grids with no more than two blows in one place can be derived from this one page. The grids are grouped in rows according to the three possible groups for the treble's 3-4 cross-section (-12-, -56- and 56-12), and columns according to the same over/under work. Each grid shows the overwork and corresponding 'reversed underwork'. The 'blue lines' for -12- and -56- methods are also available here). A composition containing all 324 possible -12- grids (or all 324 possible -56-grids) in 7 extents can be seen here. The composition makes use of PABS magic blocks.

  • The 147 regular treble-dodging minor methods
    (A table containing the 147 different regular treble-dodging minor methods, grouped by overwork and underwork. The raw file (.doc) is also available here).

  • Earis 23-spliced
    This new composition, described more fully here represents a big leap in the music in 23-spliced compositions. Blue lines for the methods are available here.

  • David Pipe's Cyclic 6
    This maximus composition is one of the finest known to humanity. Elegance personified.

  • "Red" Cyclic 6
    This interesting cyclic maximus composition draws heavily on Pipe's original.

  • 100-spliced Surprise Major
    The 'standard' 100 methods, spliced together in a clever composition by Paul Needham.

  • Norman Smith's 23-spliced
    Available as grids both with and without 'standard 8' methods included. Also available in monkey blue-line format.

  • Chandler's 23-spliced
    This intersting composition is also available both in monkey blue-line and grid format.

  • David Hull's 23-spliced
    (A 23-spliced composition with cyclic part-ends containing a variety of interesting methods).

  • Richard Pearce's 23-spliced
    (An alternative cyclic 23-spliced composition which doesn't require much learning. The methods are all contained in the standard 8, Horton's 4, the 'Nottingham' 8, Pitman's series and Crossland's series).

  • The Hudson 7 minor
    (A collection of seven minor methods, each of a different category, which have the rare property that all-the-work extents for all six bells are possible).

  • Colin Wyld's Spliced Series (4-24m)
    (A very neat tenors-together (and still atw) composition for splicing methods with Premier, Lancashire and Stanton above the treble).

  • The Non-Adjacent 4
    (The four possible double regular treble-dodging major methods with no adjacent places made. The composition's history is described here).
