Hi,

As the title says, do you practice your pyramids with 2 hands together?

I must say that's Moon's last video which suggest me to, the fact is that I didn't try before...
Eventhough I can pretty smoothly work my pyramids with either hand, I found difficult to do with both at the same time, pinky fingers touching...
Difficult to keep the tray plane, I mean.

Well I think I'll work this, because it seems a good way to learn to pass the pyramid from hand to hand while spinning.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

I haven't tried with a pyramid, but I've been trying to do this with 3 ball palmspins.

It's not very smooth yet, but it seems to be a nice way of passing 3 balls between hands without stopping the spinning.

I guess it just seems hard because it's a completely new motion to that of one-handed ball spinning.

I haven't got a clue what you mean.

In Moon's new video, the pyramid doesn't actually leave his left hand.

He does some what i think are called propellors in the moves section here, and tips the pyramid between hands, but always returns back to the left hand...

he also does some line shuffles, and some funky diamond shape stuff, as well as a little bit of snake.

I can't see what you saw...

Hello LTC,

I did say that moon's video suggest me to work the 2-hands pyramid...
Actually you're right, he didn't do that: But He gave me the idea to do so!
Maybe it's me, but very often seing something give me another idea, this work for me very well in magic too...

hi guys I haven't understood which video are you talking about

what do you mean with "pyramids 2 hands together"? 8 balls 2 hands? or 4 balls 2 hands (propeller?)

if I understand what you're needing for, I'll be happy to help you

thanks!

Hello Moon,

A week ago I saw your video where you manipulate 4 spheres...
Very smooth vid imho, I like it a lot!

This gave me the idea to palmspin a 4-ball pyramid with the two hands, pinky side touching, on the tray plane. Like a normal palmspin, but with the two hands...not the propellor.

Well, I see it's difficult for me to describe something really simple

I hope you understand what I mean, because right now I don't know how to be more precise...

I'm happy you like that vid, it was a gala at the italian convention (there were marco paoletti, thomas dietz and stephan sing too ). I've understood what you mean! I've never tried..maybe if I've time these days I'll try to film it


thanks for you patience explaining me!

OUI!

Glad you understand me!!

You know, after a couple hours practising this counter clockwise, it comes pretty well right now...
It's a matter of keeping the tray plane in order not to drop the top ball.
Now I have to work clockwise: a hell of difficult for me...
But you know, it's a really good way to learn to pass the pyramid from hand to hand while continuously spinning...

Thank you!
