Hello...newbie here.
I have been practicing a couple of coin matrix/assembly routines.
As with all tricks, once I *think* I have something smooth, I spring it on my poor wife.

I've been working on Daniel Garcia's "Shade," and for the life of me, there are a couple of spots where I just can't seem to hide the coin. I guess I can't go into detail about that.

So my general question about these types of routines: are they meant to be performed for a single spectator, head on? Or worse yet...a camera for YouTube? Smile

I know for shade it's made for one person head on or a camera, IMO not a real worker, but great for that one time you want to fry a friend. I never spend much time on the special one on one tricks becuase I'd rather spend time on workers...

Thanks...I just wanted to confirm whether these types of things are indeed for one-on-one situations.

Mitch, it depends on what assembly you are doing. I don't own "Shade" correct me if I am wrong, it uses just four coins right? Therefore the method would rely on hiding to some extent the true location of the coins during the routine.

If you perform a more standard assembly like David Roth's "Chink-a-Chink" or the ] version "Shadow Coins" due to the methods there are virtually no angle considerations. You never have to conceal the true location of the coins except when you openly and deliberately cover the coins that are about to move.

Thanks for the Clip Dan, Roth is amazing! Many of the matrix routines can be done without too many angle problems, and most when practically none. The advantage to Shade is there are only 4 coins with nothing extra

Nice clip but Letterman is so annoying. He grabs a coin right off the bat. Imagine if that was a shell? He covers a coin with his tie and breaks the flow. What a jerk. I think there should be a time limit as to how long one person can host a talk show. Eight years maximum. Smile

It's nice to see how Roth handles Letterman though.
