Then how about you practice it. 8)

I've been working on this, starting yesterday. I got a small blister yesterday, and it unfortuanetly popped during school today, so I can't practice it now because it really hurts. It hurt enough with the blister, but it's horrible with a popped blister. :mrgreen:

I can get it up about an inch. I told my friend, who's also a magician, about it and told him how to do it. He says, "Oh, like this?" and pops the coin up about 5 inches into the air. Yes, that's right, on his first try. It was pretty funny that I couldn't even hold the coin, and he's over here like an expert *exaggeration*. It was beginners luck, but he's still doing about 3 to 3.5 inches. :lol:

Yeah, just practice man.

I was "fortunate" because around the time I was learning this I went to the Philippines. It was a 15 hour flight, so I practiced the muscle pass for the most part. Just like PJH I got a blister and popped it but I just kept going and it started bleeding and stuff.

Also, I only knew of the Daniel Garcia "quarters" routine then so learned with a quarter. A lot more difficult and frustrating, but worth it. It's a really cool effect and I'm glad I can now do it.

Muscle pass with a quarter is near impossible. At least if you want to get it more than a couple inches high.

lol....yeah, in response to only getting a quarter a few inches high, it is true. i'm up to about, 4-5 inches, but for Danny Garcia's routine and other similar routines this is more than enough.

and on the plane....yes i did take breaks, but it was a midnight flight, and they showed the same movie twice in a row....

in regards to the bleeding, if you fight through it for a bit, let it heal, then try again, you'll develop a callose making a muscle pass easier.

You know that a callose is just a toughened area of skin right?

lol, yeah it does seem that way doesn't it flameheadboy? there's a story behind it that dates back to highschool and email addresses. but now i just use it for user names so that i don't forget! and because it's plural, people often ask me if i'm Edited or something....i'm not....or am i?!

yeah, i would suggest learning other sleights first that are more "useful". i say this because the muscle pass can only be used in certain applications, where as other sleights can be used in a wider array of tricks.

but don't give up completely. i just have a good sized coin in my wallet and practice when i'm sitting in traffic or something.

good luck!
