Lots of good points. I notice that some folks here are very good at
colding out new people, no introductions, offers for them to lead
one. I always thought that when someone new arrives, the music should
halt at the next tune end to allow them to tune to the circle, and
then they should be given the choice of tunes to continue with.
Otherwise, sometimes we get people waiting patiently (with very itchy
fingers) to tune to the circle for 15-20 mins, and maybe getting a
tune they know in by the 1/2 hour mark!!
So the big one- generaly helpfulness and friendliness about getting
everyone in tune.
