Thanks! It's an old "story", but, then, I'm old, too.

I've read and commented on several of your posts.

It evident that you are approaching the learning of magic with good ethics!

Your ATTITUDE will help determine your ALTITUDE in life! (I noted your aviation interest!)

Yup...your attitude, and, that smile will take you far!

There is a lot of good thumb tip material now on YouTube, just search for it.

Old thread but still a good one.... Here are my thoughts.

**Examining The Thumb tip by Alexander DeCova
***Patrick Page video on Thumb tips
*Darwin's Encyclopedia of Thumb Tip Magic 3-DVD set & instant download (See below)
**Hand-picked Astonishments (Thumb Tips) by Paul Harris and Joshua Jay.
*Dan Harlan Tarbell 6 Thumb Tips Download
*Duane Laflin The Magicians Secret Weapon The Thumb Tip
***Salvano Greater Magic Thumb Tips
*Thumbtipedia By Vernet
**Losander As Good As It Gets
**Thumb tips Worlds Greatest Magic

*Basics-Start here and master these.
**Thinking outside the box and good methods. Expand your repertoire.
***Great handling ideas. Awesome nuggets.

If I had to suggest starting with one it would be Darwin's Encyclopedia of Thumb Tip Magic 3-DVD set. (Penguin also has as instant download.)
Next, all the ** are good and varied enough to be well worth it.
Finally, Salvano & Page.

Just my thoughts.

I learnt everything I know about TT from the Darwin set. It's very exhaustive.
