Wow, I guess I was wrong, people do like "Winged Silver". It would have been cool to learn it the way you learned it Mr. Taylor. I first learned it in Bobo's, then from the David Roth's DVD's.....

Give the matter of that last coin's vanish some more thought and you will find several ways of ending "clean". Even the thumb slide (as in the hole routine) can get you going and also set you up for a later effect. Smile From there you may want to explore a pull or holdout.

I never have a problem with the last coin. I just pick up the 4 coins in the end and do a shuttle pass, while retaining one, to the other hand and then toss them back on the table with some patter. Well, it works for me and no one seems to suspect a thing.....

Fingers, it's the last vanish that some of us like to sell.

BTW some of my work on the basic plot is in the September issue of Genii.

Oops, didn't mean to step on anyones toes Mr. Townsend. I still have to figure out how I am going to get a copy of that September issue of Genii too. In fact I think I will work on that now.....

Just PM'ed you Mr. Townsend. I just came from the Genii site and I was able to get the September back issue with no problem, man that was easier than I thought. They say it will be shipped within two days, I can't wait!

For all of you who like winged silver, you should check out Cocktail Coins Across on The Magic of David Stone Vol 2. It uses 4 silver halves and an english penny. It also uses a copper/silver coin. A very visual coins across involving a spectator. I have been performing this trick lately and everybody loves it. Now I'm putting the finishing touches on winged silver which I started learning because of this thread. Gotta love the Café!!

I have heard a lot of good things about David Stone, but sorry to say I don't own any of his works. That "Cocktails Coins Across" sounds pretty interesting Stevie D. I think you just gave me a good reason to checkout some of his material, thanks.....

I just looked up the Bobo Community Project to see how it is going and thought I'd watch someone else doing Winged Silver. It was very, very different than what I do. I could see it was a lot like what I do, it's a coins across with 3 coins. I could remember doing it pretty much as they do it on the project but somehow over the course of the years I must have made one tiny change then another until they look like two entirely different tricks.

That was entirely unintentional.

Odd, ain't it?

Actually rikbrooks I find myself doing pretty much the same thing in a lot of routines I practice. I think it is almost an involuntery type thing.

I have DVD's of a lot of routines that I do or am working on and once I have the routine down, at least the mechanics of it, I put the DVD away. However, sometimes I go back and look at the DVD of the routine I am working on from time to time, say maybe to verify or check a certain part of the routine and find that I made small changes here and there and didn't even realize it. They may be small changes, but nonetheless changes.

I can see after a long period of time doing a particular routine where almost an entire new routine could evolve. The basic routine would still be there, but your personal flare would be added, hmm say by magic.....

That "kid" on the BCP used coins that sounded an awful lot like, shall we say, non-standard issue.

JMHO

CHeers! Smile
