Greetings from West Michigan! I've been lurking for several months, but you guys seem to be having a lot of fun, so I thought I'd better join in!

I'm fairly new to magic and am currently working (slowly) through Royal Road to Card Magic. I recently purchased Daryl's Encyclopedia of Card Sleights as a visual reference. I had spent three weeks working on the DL from RRTCM, then watched Daryl's DLs; he mentions the RR version just long enough to say 'don't do it this way!' As a beginner, I think I'll continue practicing it that way, then move on to another sleight, and perhaps come back to the DL later. It won't fool magicians, but others don't seem to suspect it.

Oh, and I like rubber bands (thanks to The Magic of Michael Ammar).

It's great to be here!

Hi Davros :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:
Card and rubber bands are so common objects that you can fool people everywhere. You are on the right way I guess.
Let me welcome you with a cup of strong Turkish coffee on my bill.

Welcome to the Café. I'm currently working my way through the Ellusionist's series of tapes and found them to be a great source for me to learn from.
