Call Changes

Now you can follow a bell fairly reliably in rounds, it is time to learn to become a change ringer. The first step is to ring call changes. Instead of following the same bell all the time, the conductor will change the order in which the bells ring. He will call a bell to follow a different one.

Put this into practice now and have a play on this simulator: Call Change Simulator.
