Hi folks - finally found that Register link! Getting back into magic after a 30 year hiatus. Mostly focusing on cards and coins for now to rebuild my fine motor skills after an accident, but interested in all kinds. This forum is truly one of the Internet's bright happy places. :)

Hey Vince,

Welcome to the forums. I hope that your fine motor skills are improving after the accident!
All the best on your endeavors, are you working on anything specific at the moment?

Thanks all! I had been starting with Erdnase, but got talking with the nice folks down at my local magic shop and they pointed me towards Roberto Giobbi's Card Magic Masterclass videos. I'm about a week into it, and there is more material in there than I can possibly master in my lifetime. It's a great series - wish I had it as a kid! Nice complement to Card College. Been working with David Roth's Expert Coin Magic as well just to round out the finger dexterity. At this point, I figure fundamentals are more important for me than any specific effects. But I hope to get to those soon... ;)
