This does indeed seem to be a rather nice and musical "method" (readers 
other than the methods committee can ignore the inverted commas here).

I'm a bit disappointed to see that the recommended touch is 3 homes, 
however.  It seems to me that the 2nd and 3rd courses will lack much of 
the music of the plain course.  There should be plenty of better simple 
short touches available...
