Doubles Calls

This list shows all the named Doubles calls used in the Variations Library, arranged in order of their code letters. A single letter code indicates a symmetrical call, while double letter codes indicate asymmetrical ones. An asterisk after the code shows that the call is made below the treble; these calls are the reverse of the corresponding code without an asterisk.

Note that some calls are known by more than one name. Where both names are still current, both are shown in the table.

To search for calls by name or by other criteria, use the Search function linked from the top of the page.
