I really want to do the ring on string/ring on rope routine. Does anyone know an easy to learn (but a lifetime to master of course) ring on rope routine that I can or should get?

Get yourself "The Klutz Book of Magic".

very easy and very good string & ring effects, great for the beginner and excellent for the pro entertainer.

I use a few of the moves and such from this book in my own routine and for laymen they are foolers to be sure.

Personally I think Scott Guinn's rope and string is very good, I have his dvd and it is very easy to learn.

What happens a lot of times with questions like this is that people give answers based on their own understanding of what constitutes a ring and rope or ring and string effect. After a PM exchange, Rick let me know that what he really wanted was a finger ring and string routine, probably with a borrowed ring.

There is a pretty big difference between finger ring and string routines (Relentless, Ring Leader, Ray Grismer, etc) and large harness ring (or even solid linking ring) and rope routines (Full Circle, David Williamson, Eric DeCamps, etc). I have material for both types.

It always better to give more information rather than less, both when asking the question and giving the answer.

I suggest that in the future, as many of us as possible specify whether we're talking about a finger ring or a large (harness) ring, both in asking questions and in giving answers / resources. It make things so much clearer and easier for everyone concerned, as there is confusion in almost every topic of this type.

To me, you use a finger ring with a string (ring and string) and a large ring with a rope (ring and rope). A rope just seems too big for a finger ring, at least most moves work better with a string.

Understood that to you that's how it's done. However, Gary Ouellet for example used a rope with a finger ring in his excellent "Homing Ring" routine published by the Camirand Academy of Magic in Quebec.

So though it might be clear to you what you mean, that doesn't necessarily mean it's clear to others. By simply adding or excluding the word "finger" when referring to the ring,it becomes crystal clear to everyone.

I must say that looked really nice. I don't usually go for gimmicked
ring and string stuff, but I can see how this could have it's place.
How is RingScape different from The Ring Thing by Bob King?

There is a nice (finger) ring off of a loop of string (held by the spec) in Magic for Dummies

I put this on another thread and thought I put it here too, its not a routine, but it an effect that could be part of a routine:

With one end of a string tied around your wrist (not a strict requirement), and the other tied to anything else, you put a (finger) ring onto the string! You could also start with the (finger) ring on the string and take it off. No dupes, no gimmicks. Sound interesting?

I like Diamond Jim Tylers. You can google him and find it on his website. It is a ring on string and designed with the strolling or close-up guy in mind. It has multiple phases that build in strength. Diamond Jim is a real worker.

World Greatest Magic Finger ring magic DVD is the best bang for your buck

There is Daryl's Ring Rope and Wand, the Ring thing (one of my top five impromptu routines), you will learn quite a few ring off the string moves and also Sankey's Stirring Silver routine.

And its all for only like 18 bucks!!!!

Agreed...WGM Finger Ring is a great value. but Ring Leader is also jam packed with great workers and has a lot of practical material for the money as well!
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

I have to say that looks like the John Derris Effect with a sleightly different routine. Same Lace, Same Ring, Same Gimick. (I do love the ring behind the back idea though)

Aldo Colombini's Ringing Around is a great place to start. I believe it is only $10, but I could be wrong.
