Is anyone using tapping for memo?
Like, tapping edges, and audio corners or something..
What do you think about it?
I have thought about doing something similar, in adding another part to PAO, to bring it to an even number of parts. I thought about PAOS: Person/Action/Object/Setting, where setting is kind of a location within the location. I thought about setting up P, A, O and S for each letter of the alphabet, and then having a PAOS image for each 4 letters.Well having had a few BLD sucesses a few months ago but all BLD attempts were plagued with bad memo, missing cycles, execution errors and then eventually plagued by low confidence. I got very frustrated. However I really enjoy BLD and it is an event I do want to get better at.
I used to use a Person/Action/Object based memo and on looking into my failures it seemed I was getting confused with 3 letters per image, not sure why, probably just me.
I have adapted my memo to include another letter per image and added 'profession or job' so now I have Person/Profession/Action/Object. The profession may be how they are dressed in the image or the nature of the profession interact with the image in some way. Early indication, just memorising letter sequences seems much better.
Proof positive will be in the solves, which I will gradually start again now but I do not want to become despondant again with BLD and would prefer to take it slowly. Just thought some may want to know about the adaptation of the PAO system.

For example, I could have Michael Jackson/moonwalking/with a white glove/on a stage. Or Michael Phelps/swimming/in a Speedo/in a pool.
I never did do this, though, and instead, I'm now composing a letter pair list.
Just a thought
No, all those things would be for the same sticker, and one of them would be used per solve. So you would get images like 'Michael Jackson is kicking a Rubik's Cube on a table.' Maybe something else would work better than setting.Just remember that "Michael Jackson/moonwalking/with a white glove/on a stage" is easy to remember, because it REALLY fits together, and the odds of getting anything that fits this good is probably 1/(20x18x16) assuming you actually have all of these things, and NOT on the same sticker. "Michael Phelps, playing pinball, with a white glove, in a sauna" may be harder to remember.
Not saying it's a bad idea, but it will be a lot of info on every location.
