Can anyone suggest to me a good place to learn this flourish (preferably free, but if there's a DVD which is particularly good, I'd consider it...)


Cheers!

Well, Jeff McBride has some videos out called "World Class Manipulation" and that series has many coin manipulations on it. Its a very good video and you can learn a lot from it. If you would like to read more about it, heres the link:http://gatlinburgmagic.com/More%20Videos%201.htm

Hope this helps, man.

Hey popec,

I just had a look at your site. There's some very nice video on there. It makes we wish I had practiced more in my youth.

Although it wasn't a coin video, I also quite liked your billiard juggling. It reminds me of the sort of thing that Michael Moschen does. http://www.michaelmoschen.com (Not a site for coin guys really. Just for those of you who don't know about this guy.)

Once seen you know how to do it - it just takes time... for me... practise then take a break for a week or so - then try again - seems to come on in leaps and bounds but a break is important as you get used to a certain speed and can't jump to the next level... worth the effort - calling card - and just fun to do...
catch you later

My apologies for the wrong attribution. Wrenn, if you're reading, mea culpa.

Thanks for pointing that out, popec. I wish you luck becoming that good. Or better, perhaps?

Yeah, Wrenn does it on his vids. Or if you mean on the under side of your knuckles, I have see David Stone do it on one of his tapes.

Hi Charlie,

By backwards do you mean back up the fingers, or do you mean turning the back of your hand towards the floor and rolling the coin across the front of the fingers?

Both come reasonably quickly once you get the main roll down smoothy.

Saw Goshman doing the roll down, back up and then on the inside of his hand which is where I got my inspiration from. (that was on video not in person sadly Smile )

Bobo's teaches the flourish, if you haven't got that book then I would reccomend getting it...you'll learn lots.

Wow, I like that coinManip... site too! I saw a guy use a the coin roll for misdirection and creating an offbeat so I said to myself I must learn the it. I tried to learn this way back when I was a kid and so my fingers kind of know what to do but I never really got it. The coinmanip site has lots of flourishes to consider for misdirection, so if I never learn the roll maybe I can use something I can do.

Thanks again for the link!

I remember seeing Martin Landau do this on Mission Impossible (the TV show)

After that I was doing it, long before I knew anything about coin magic.

Last night I was doing some copper silver changes with a penny and nickle.(rather than a half and an english penny. This was at a S.A.M. meeting. Some people were commenting more on the rolling and the c/p with the small coins than the routine.(This doesn't happen when I share the same routine with lay folks.) To them a coin is a coin is a coin.(By any other name....but I digress)

Years ago I recall Mr. Goshman suggesting rolling coins with another coin in c/p.

I hope to meet some of you in Boston for the S.A.M. National Convention.

I will be on a panel sharing about use of magic with a message.

Thanks for inspiring me to continue to explore the possibilities with coins.

Last night before my coin routines, I decided to play a little Whose line is it anyway. I turned the small round table into the steering wheel of a car. Someone in the audience suggested I get a couple of phone books to sit on. (probably due to my staturesque/sic? 5'5" frame.

Honestly, you don't need a book to learn this flourish. I spent hours and hours mastering it...I guess I still am on my off hand.

Practice is the key.

Yeah, no book or vid is needed- just plenty of trial and hopefully less error.

If you want DVDs get David Roth's on flourishes.

Try practicing this while watching a video or tv show.

I still practice this when sitting listening to lectures. Last week I was at an all day conference on working with clients with anxiety disorders.(but I digress...)

Interesting, I hadn't noticed, but maybe I just was not alert to it. I did notice the time of day makes a huge difference for me. Also was pleased that my progress went up slowly (an additional set every few days) until I could could do 10 complete sets without a fumble, then the advances came faster, i.e., multiple-set-additions each day if and only if it was not too late in the evening. Then I am really poor!

I can get two pretty well. It took me forever. I have always practiced with two coins. It helped my single coin roll.
