Yes I think "slow" refers to sections of work where a bell doesn't move 
very far within the change; in particular being stuck on the front.

I suspect a similar usage led to the "slow" and "quick" six designations 
in Stedman - in the slow work a bell is stuck on the front for a long 
time, in the quick six it moves through the front positions as quickly 
as possible. Does anyone know when these terms for the sixes were first 
used? They are not in Campanologia.
