Thanks for the comments. Cat, you are right about Branle Anglais piece. I started paying the piece on first position, and only started working on the current position with the carpo when I noticed it from Pentti's post a little over a week ago, so I'm not comfortable with that position yet.
George, thanks for the tip concerning Samba Lele, I started with counting, but as I sped up the speed, I must have messed up the timing of the intro. Will look into it again!
