Hi there,

Can someone please tell me if I'm doing Mills Mess correctly? I want to make sure I'm doing it right before I develop and improve it!

The link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4C5QjgOpC0U

God bless!

You are cheating. There are six moves to the Mills mess you are pulling back on moves two, and five. The way to overcome that is to practice three moves at a time.

Hi there,

Thanks Al! I needed the word of an experienced juggler like yourself to tell me what I was doing wrong! I thought it felt a little too easy!

Thanks for the help, and the video will now come off YouTube!

God bless!

Hi there,

Not sure aboiut next week Al! I have a week of exams at school to contend with so juggling isn't really a priority. I will post a new video on this post though very, very soon after that! Keep watching for this being updated!

God bless!

I hope you don't mind me intruding, but there seems to be no point in starting another topic about this Smile

I'm trying to learn Mills Mess as well and to be honest, I think there are too many balls. Does anyone have a nice suggestion on how to learn? I'm getting the feeling picking balls up from around the room isn't getting me anywhere... On the other hand, that is the way I learned to juggle a long time ago, but I guess there isn't a better option?

Welcome to the magic Café. I can't teach you the Mills mess here, but I do have several suggestions.

Work very hard on your weaker hand.

Practice over your bed so you don't have to chase balls all over the room.

There are six moves to the Mills mess. I learned by practicing three moves at a time.

I love your country, because of the attitude of the people, and your beautiful laws. Do you know the street performer Robert Blake, he has helped me a lot with my rope magic?

Thank you very much for helping me out. I really like the one about practising over the bed. If only someone had told me about that earlier... Smile

My main problem seems to be throwing accurately, so I guess I'll have to start working on that. I wonder why I am able to juggle three balls 'normally' without having to chase them around the room...

Am I right if I think the last three steps are the first three in reverse? It might just help if I was able to think more about what I'm trying to do instead of wondering where those balls are going Smile

My father has seen Robert Blake perform at a work-related event, but sadly I wasn't there to see it as well. I heard everybody liked the guy and his performance. But beautiful laws? Maybe, but sometimes it gets a bit weird. How about this road sign: http://www.nieuwnieuws.nl/archives/images/blowverbod.gif Smile

But I just love the Dutch language. It sounds like... well, nothing I've ever heard before. Wow. Better stop rambling now. Thanks, anyway Smile
