Topic: DVD Suggestion for my girlfriend, Easy routines yet still very powerful magic
Message: Posted by: Head Case (Mar 28, 2015 08:24PM)
So I have held off for a long time only showing my gf effects and not telling her how they are done. Her interest has peeked so much that she wants to start learning how to do magic herself. I need to be careful not to overwhelm her though, so instead of throwing something like the Card College books at her, or Ammars card series. I think it might be wise to start her off with an easy to follow DVD that contains self working card tricks so that she can get some instant gratifications up front. Then I can throw her into more of a series of DVD's that she can start to study. Then I can introduce her to some books and really get her into it (If she wants to take it that far)

I am not too famelir with DVD's that contain self working material, so I was hoping that someone with some first hand experience with them could make a suggestion of a few different videos to take a look at.

Id like to just make sure that they are very easy routines. Yet powerful enough for me to be able to watch the video first, learn the routines, and then show her them so she knows how they should look when performed, and THEN ill let her learn them. I just want to make sure they are going to be routines that really make her go WOAH, so that she wants to take the effort to sit down and learn them, and more importantly let me teach her how to present them to make it more powerful.

If someone could just list a few different titles that you think she might like, id like to go read about them and some reviews so I can figure out one or two that I am willing to pick up for her.

Thanks a ton!

Why relegate books to your second choice?

Get her [i]Scarne On Card Tricks[/i] and she will have enough to keep her busy for quite some time!

It really is an underrated resource...so much good stuff in there!

Merely all that needs to be done is go to your favorite magic dealer's site and type, "self working" in the search bar. Hocus Pocus has quite the selection of quality books and DVDs.
