Hey Everyone, I just recently got into some ring and rope magic,(Not Finger Rings) and I was looking for some books or videos that had some great routines or moves, I have Tarbell (which is what got me interested in ring and rope) and a PDF that came with the ring I bought, however the PDF doesn't go over much, it only goes over a simple link and unlink.
I'm not looking for a whole lot just enough to put together a strong visual 2-3 minute routine for a filler between some of my illusions.

Thanks,

Jonah

Have a look at Self-Working Rope Magic by Karl Fulves. (No rope magic is really self-working, of course.)

If you can find it, El Duco put out a 5 phase ring and rope routine by willie Wessel that is fantastic. Some moves that I haven't seen anywhere else. Its a brilliant routine.

Phil Wilmarth, Past International President of the I.B.M. and long time editor of the Parade section of the Linking Ring Magazine, put out a lecture notes/booklet teaching most of the "new" ring & rope moves of the day. This was back in the time (decades ago) when most of the ring & rope material was considered fresh and innovative.

It still appears on the used lists from time to time, very reasonably priced.

Aldo Colombini's "Ring Around" and "Ring Around Two" are inexpensive and easy to follow. You used to be able to get one in video and one printed
for optimal learning.

Daryl has ring and rope routines on various DVDs, including Fooler Dooler series.

Williamson shows his routine in his Penguin Lecture. It's a real worker.

Awesome! I have been looking at some of the books and stuff you guys have told me about, Some I knew about and others I didn't, So thank you all so much for your help!
I'm putting together a routine and I'll share it when I get it finished.

Thanks again!

Maybe not a Hugh source, but Ring-scape has a nice routine with a number of effects as part of the main routine,

you can read about it in a thread in this section

The one available at Vanishing Inc is very good quality! The video instructions are subtitled but the material is easily understood and well explained. I'm a little worried about dropping the ring and denting it, practice over carpet!
