That's not right, is it? My arrangement gains the 25346 coursing order 
over yours, and with it appears to add, not lose, a total of eleven 6543 
runs. In fact, I'm quite liking the new version!

Know what you mean about having the plain course first though. It's a 
quandary for composers isn't it - on the one hand you want the band to 
settle down as quickly as possible to enjoy as much of your composition 
as they can, but on the other hand you don't want them to murder the 
plain course will all the initial method-learning going on... ;-)
