How did you achieve finger independence for cups and balls? Specifically, I'm talking about the various devious pinkie maneuvers. Ammar does things with his pinkie that scare me :o)

I've found an exercise that helps, kinda, as long as you don't mind the creaking sound of your tendons stretching. Are there any published exercises? Or does everyone just do a routine time after time after time...?

None of Ammar's pinky maneuvers are any more difficult than the use of the pinky while playing a guitar, a piano, a saxophone or any musical instrument. It's just a matter of practice.

If you need to find some excercises, there is an interesting web site that may help you find some.

I think it's called gobble or gooble or something like that. Oh, yeah. I remember.

I don't see any problem using the pinky in C&B at all.

The real challenge is to master the pinky on counting cards with confidence while you are performing in front of real people.

Pete, don't delude yourself, your cups are eating the balls, and you know it! Smile
