>From what I remember Albanian would have a rule as it is part of a family
of Cambridge-like methods.
Yorkshire N is Cambridge N above and Cambridge N-2 below, with 2nd/5ths
place bell being a 'false' treble causing the other bells to do half
Cambridge places with a dodge with one of those bells rather than the
Pudsey N is similar, but Cambridge N below and Cambridge N-2 (shifted up)
above, with 3rds place bell being the 'false' treble.
Prittlewell is Pudsey above and Yorkshire below.
Albanian N is Cambridge N above and Cambridge N-4 below with 6th and 9ths
place bells being the 'false' trebles and 2nds and 5ths place bells
looking like Yorkshire.
Presumably there is a maximus method with Cambridge N above and Cambridge
N-6 below and another with Cambridge N below and Cambridge N-6 (shifted
up) above, plus ones created by mixing different types of above and below
I think my rule for Albanian N would be:
ring Cambridge above the treble
2nd place - ring Yorkshire N
6ths place - plain hunt down past the treble, then ring Yorkshire N-2,
then dodge with the treble and ring Cambridge
For next N/2 - 3 place bells
10ths place - ring Cambridge until below the treble, then TB, miss out 1/2
down, Yorkshire places N-6 up, then dodge with the treble and ring
next - ring Cambridge until below the treble, then TB, miss out 3/4 down,
Yorkshire places N-8 up, then dodge with the treble and ring Cambridge
next - ring Cambridge until below the treble, then TB, miss out 5/6 down,
Yorkshire places N-10 up, then dodge with the treble and ring Cambridge
3rds place bell - ring Cambridge
It's a lot harder to invent a rule and find that it generates methods
rather than discover a rule once you have another way of generating
