Any suggestions on a go to truck that I can keep on me all the time and is pretty simple to preform. Looking for something organic and that I do on a moments notice. I wear a ok ring so maybe any ideas with that?

I suggest you READ! (Because I cannot TEACH you ANYTHING!. I can only HELP YOU LEARN!

READ>>>> TARBELL COURSE IN MAGIC, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF IMPROMPTU MAGIC...Martin Gardner


You cannot keep tricks "on you". Tricks only exist while they are being performed.

What is an "organic" trick?

Both the Mark Wilson and Joshua Jay Complete Course in Magic can hep you here. Both books teach several card tricks. Carry a deck of cards with you and you'll be ready with serveral "go to" tricks.

The first thing you should read, before Tarbell or any other book on magic, is to READ YOUR OWN POSTS before you push the button to post them. Check them for spelling and accuracy. Only half our business is magic - the other half is communication, and don't be embarrassed by that because even Houdini had to learn to use grammar correctly in both his speaking and writing. Houdini didn't have a magic genii to help him learn to write, but you do. It's called SPELL CHECK and GRAMMAR CHECK. If you can correct your original post so I can understand it, I will be happy to give you an answer to your question.

What don't you understand about organic preformed trucks?

Hi guys. Sorry about spelling. I am typing on a iphone and it has the automatic spelling correction which changes the words. I tried to go back but don't see where I can edit my previous posts. Please let me know where I can change my previous posts. A little about my self I graduated with a 4.0 from college and run a 5 million dollar brokerage company which I established with my father. I understand the correct use of grammar, spelling and communication. My mistakes were caused by my lack of attention. Sorry, trying to squeeze these posts in on my phone between meetings, phone calls, 2 kids fighting for my attention, school drop off, sports and my wife telling me I'm obsessed with magic. Lol. So to say the least sometimes I'm not 100 focused. I apologize again.

Ed, you have thirty minutes or until a reply is posted to edit your posts. You should see the edit button adjacent to the date and time hack directly above your post.

I still don't know what organic truck you want to preform with your ok ring. However, if you are looking for a TRICK to make something disappear from HERE and GO TO someplace else, using something you always carry on your person, you might look into coins across or matrix. You probably always have four or five quarters in your pocket, and you can make them hop from hand to hand (coins across) or move about on a table (matrix) and you don't even need to use your OK ring. Is that the kind of thing that appeals to you?

I have a few things with me all the time.
But I also understand how to present them.
What types of magic do you like?
What are you comfortable performing?
What kinds of performing experience do you have?
