What are everyone's favorite routines that you use and what tricks. How do you change from trick to trick? What patter do you use???

I loved the man who told the kid about a routine with Cokes. I loved it...

I like doing all the various coin routines that I do. When I move from trick to trick I just go on to it. I don't have patter that "flows" from one thing to the next because in my performing style I do not feel that it is really necessary.

I must say that the perfect pen thru anything routine is AWESOME. Also, a very carefully done D'lite routine has no equal.

Hey Daniel, what are you talking about, "I loved the man who told the kid about a routine with Cokes. I loved it..." I'm interested to here about this routine.

One of my favorites is Vernon's original Twisting the Aces. I've been working on this one for about a month and a half, and I absolutely LOVE the routine.

People have their own rountines. Learn from watching a few professional magician's tapes, then put your own rountine together. Jeff McBride is excellent to watch. Another good teacher is Michael Ammar. Smile

Emily...
How wonderful to hear that you're learning one of the classics! And even better to know that you've hit the magic 50-post level! You'll benefit greatly from both.
Cheers,
Steve

Twisting the Aces is great! Try the McClintock Twist from Reed. It is the same idea, just extremely mindblowing. I love it.
Best of luck to all.

Well, at this point my routine is changing daily!! As I learn more, I'm mixing and matching effects that fit my style a little bit more. An example of my routine could be...Twisted Sisters, Color Monte, Astral Projection, Prediction Impossible, Pen Through Dollar, various effects from The Royal Road to Card Magic (I've hit my first "serious work" chapter now that I've hit palming Smile ), etc. I'm also just starting Bobo's MCM book to add some coin effects.

As far as packet tricks go, I highly recommend Astral Projection (very easy and very psychological for the audience) and Twisted Sisters (I can't say any more than what has already been said about this one).

I would recommend any Ambitious Card routines - especially when the card visibly pops from the middle to the top of the deck Smile

Matrix,
Four coins are placed in each corner of a close up mat and end up under a single card. Fun to watch and fun to do.

I patter something about harry potter needing to make a deposit from some of the magical places he frequents. Sure enough, the coins end up under the wizards bank.
Magic is fun!!!

I have been taught to always put my tricks into short sets of 2-3 effects, rather than doing just one trick for folks. This has turned out to be the best advice I have ever received. It was a quantum leap for me as a magician.

Now I am always thinking how effects fit together and work into a set or show.

You have to define what type of audience, with that as the bulls eye then you choose the arrows to use. I love thimbles,yet when I do stage magic they are hard to see.
Many routines follow a flowing which come about by telling a story.Again,knowing the type/age/purpose of show/your personal favorite effects all blend into making a show. There are some wonderful books about routining and patter. But,one step at a time...

These things grow on me. I start with some trick I like, change something in the patter to suit me better, change something in the handling to suit me better, then it happens that I change the 'secret' to suit me better... in the end I end up with something that hardly resembles the original trick or routine, but it has become mine... Think hard, practice hard, rehearse hard

Ciao for now

As a novice, I've received similar advice to take three tricks, learn them very well, and practice presenting them. Also to ask yourself "why?" you're doing these particular ones.
