I find it hard to classic palm more than one coin. Has anybody played about with classic palming one coin and finger palming/thumb palming another?

Downs has a photo with classic thumb and finger palms at the same time in his book. He explains that although it's definitely possible to utilize more than one palm, it's hardly useful...then again some performers have proven the exception.

If you need to palm tons of coins, using more than one palm is a way to do it. Edge palm is good for many coins, then again, study Downs if your idea of a good time is cramming as many half dollars into your palm as is possible, he regularly did this...what a nutcase. I wish I had his skills though.

There are quite a few routines where you need to use multiple concealments in the same hand.

I have a few I use that come to mind that need classic palm and fingerpalmed coins at the same time.

One of my favorites is based on Splitting Silver. An American morgan is split into two liberty halfs then to four quarters.

Enjoy the journey.

I believe that Roth has a routine that he does in which a coin is in classic, thumb, edge, and finger.

I have also seen Chad Long do a wonderful routine similar to the Roth routine.

Whilst multiple palms can be useful for some neat routines I think that should never be a solid classic palm. If you need to conceal more than one coin, work on your classic palm! If you're doing a fancy routine, multiple palms OK, but never use multiple palms just because you can't CP more than one coin. It takes practice I know, but it's well worth it.

Practicing CP with multiple coins does wonders for your CP of one coin. Besides, it's one of those things that doesn't require dedicated practice time as you can do it throughout the day.

I tried CP-ing a coin while Downs Palming another the other day. It isn't hard, but I couldn't come up with any uses for it. I suspect there's someone here who can though.

Enjoy!!

That first line should read:

Sorry.

Thank you for all the response. I'm going to keep practicing classic palming more than one coin, as if it has the added benefit of making a one coin CP better, then that can't be bad.

Don't forget about using your non-dominant hand in your routines. (Classic, edge, fingertip...) Double the work, double the fun. It's two mints in one. (Wink wink)

Harris,

If a woman only uses her dominant hand for coin tricks does that make her a dominatrix?
