Don't say it's easy! Too many people will read it and say, "Oh, the glide is easy; I don't have to practice it." People don't realize how easily you can hack the glide. I believe I read something similar to this in the Classic Magic of Larry Jennings by Mike Maxwell. If I may, I will quote a bit from this book. I feel it is wonderful advice and it can help many people out greatly.

Quote:
When you practice you should never execute the sleight more than twice in a row. Any sleight should imitate a natural action. Thus, you should alternate back and forth between actually executing the move and executing the actions of what you want your audience to think you are doing. Let's take the "Pass" as an example. If you stand in front of the mirror and execute the Pass thirty times in a row, you will stray so far from correctly executing it that you will be in danger of picking up bad habits. The Pass should appear as though you merely placed the upper packet onto the lower packet, and then squared the deck. If your Pass does not look like that, and only that, it will not be effective. So, atlernate back and forth. Execute the action, and then make the sleight match that action. You will see an improvement in a very short time.

- Mike Maxwell, 1986
The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings by Mike Maxwell, p. v


P.S. Go buy this book! It is absolutely wonderful, one of the best magic purchases I've ever made.

*End rant*

Oh, and MagicJoe, I didn't mean to jump on you, I'm actually glad you said that, because it brings up a very common issue in the practice and execution of all sleights, including the glide.


I was just going on my experience with the Glide, it only took me a couple tries to feel I was really comfortable with it. And just because I can practically do it in my sleep, doesn't mean I don't practice it every couple days like I do with all my sleights.
