I saw John Lovick lecture. He is soooo boring.

Pocket Power was one of the books that gave me a foundation for my handling, although I had to change the move to fit how I actually move. The John Lovick handling is better than the Lierpoll handling.

Is there a way / place to see the John Lovick version before the Switch book comes out ?

Alan Munro: How did you see it performed already ? Thanks.

I saw Lovick perform a version of his switch a number of years ago. He has made changes to it and I imagine that he improved it somewhat. It was already a good switch.

I showed him my handling, which I have improved since that time -- took care of the only weak spot in the handling. I imagine that a lot of guys have shown him a version of the switch and he probably got a few ideas from them.

With the right technique/palming, the switch looks great without a TT. I saw John Carney do a version years ago at the Castle, and it was fabulous. You just gotta get comfortable holding out and manuversing the bill into the correct position(s).

For a really nice switch, and very clean handling, check out The TV Bill Switch by Infantino. He released it through allmagic.com

the web address is/was:
http://allmagic.com/magicshow/infantino/......ino.html

I'm sorry that I cannot make this an actual link, as I do not know how.Smile

Once you see Ammar's switch, you wouldn't want to do another. His handling is brilliant. Well worth considerinG!

I have intellectually ahd sthought similar to Peter Biro. All the no TT switches use the back and forth sliding moves--really invented by Andrus in a folding index card routine years ago. Why BecAuse it simulates the Kozlowski switch. What would be wrong with empty hand folding bill--or spectator folding it--you palm yours from magnet holding it to outside back pocket----Bobo switch it, blow on it, open t up. DONE!
--and hands positively empty until that last moment! Is that really less magical (to the layman now)than "burn this bill with your eyes and see how I keep folding it into a teeny weeny tiny little thing and then open it up".

John Lovick's from his book "Switch" is a thing of beauty. He also teaches it on Kozmo Magic's "Reel Magic Quarterly" volume #1.

Changeabill by Fred Berthelot is fast and dramatic:

I have Ammar's book with full explanation of the effect. I have friends that do this with a TT, but I have steered clear of it. I just don't get how the bill is gonna sit in the TT (in just the right position at all times) in my jacket pocket until I am ready to perform. Maybe I'm just putting too much into this.

John Cornelius uses a small paper clip to hold the bill in place and flicks it off in his pocket as he puts the TT on. Chuck

I just caught that on Reel Magic Q #1. Lovick's handling looks clean, and he goes over some nuances in handling that will help me move away from the TT switch I've been using.

The other advice here on FP-ing is spot on.

I would highly recommend Fred Berthelot's ChangeaBill. It is a visual change of a folded bill without any gimmicks. It is worth checking out.

I'd also give Changeabill my vote.

Very magical looking, and I do not have to worry about the TT.

Thanks,

Fred Berthelot's ChangeaBill is eye candy. The DVD is beautifully produced by Bob Kohler.
