I notice that a lot of people seem to be doing an in the spectators hands version of CSB. I recently picked up a CBS set and I'm wondering if anyone can share any ideas on how to more closely include the spectator. My instructions indicate that the magician is holding the coins throughout the routine.

Thanks

Try checking out the "Coin Man Walking" DVD by Dan Watkins At http://www.coinvanish.com . In my opinion his routine is excellent and well thought out! I am working on it myself. Not to mention some other killer routines on the DVD I'm sure anyone would like.

If you're talking about putting the gaffed set in the spectator's hand, start with the Doc Eason tapes. (are these on disc yet?) He's the guy who actually treats this like a traditional copper/silver transpo. Dan's routine is more visual. It happens On the spectator's hands, not In them. Also very cool though, and well worth a look.

The rest of the C/S/B routines that have the coins transpose while the spectator is holding them don't use the regular gaff. The ones I'm aware of just use a copper/silver coin. The Scotty York routine, for instance, ends with the coins transposing in the spectator's pocket.

Yes, Doc's routine is on "Doc Eason's Bar Magic DVD Vol. 3"

Doc posted here on the Café, that the in the hands transpo was inspired by J.C. Wagner.

As for my routine, Curtis is right, the transpositions occur immediately as I pick up coins from their hands or drop them into their hands. For those that use my routine, here is a tip: At the end instead of picking the coins up and doing the last transpo in your own hand, it occured to me, all the coins are already in the spectator's left hand, it is the perfect opportunity to use the "in the hands ending" that Doc uses, but when I take the gaff out, I switch it for the two real coins to clean up the routine. Give it a try, it works nicely. It's the way I have been doing the routine lately.

Dan's right, the in-the-hands sequence is J.C. Wagner's. Good catch. Also, nice idea to end Dan's sequence with it. Although I'll miss the visual "double take" from Dan's original handling. Ah well, it's nice having options.

Dan, did we talk about parking the extra coin under the spectator's watch in your routine?

Oh--it's not important. Everyone move along, nothing to be seen here...

Actually Curtis, now that I have thought about it, I think you did mention it when we hung out a bit after your lecture at DeSouza's.

Mike, here is a clue, it has to do with coin loading, a spectator, and his watch. Sorry for being so cryptic, but you know... wouldn't want to expose the concept Smile

How do you guys like Cody Fisher's routine in conjunction to Doc Eason's and so forth?
I hear Fisher has a nicer way of introducing the gaffs but what about the rest of the routine, is Fisher's stronger throughout the rest of the routine as well?

Thanks a lot!

Cody credits Doc Eason's and James Lewis' for some of the stuff he does in his routine. I think all three are good personally, you really need to watch all 3 to decide which you like, or what parts you like if you want to blend them.

OK Dan, you're trailer looked too darn good and I just ordered your DVD from MJM. I hope you're happy.

ps) Does anyone still sell the Johnson version of C/S/B? I phoned them a week ago and Kathy mentioned they won't have any for another month.
