Hello all. I'm brand new to EVERYTHING in the world of magic. I've always been a fan since I was young, and recently began exploring what all is out there to try and learn. I found this site a few days ago, and only a day ago I noticed that it had this large forum community, which I think is awesome. Coin magic is what i've set my eye on to learn, so I ordered the Bobo book. It came in earlier today and man is this stuff not a walk in the park. I'm just trying to avoid getting discouraged haha. It's clearly going to take some time to learn, but my question revolves around the following: Do I need to start out using a larger coin such as a half dollar to help "build" or get my hand muscles used to learning these new motor skills? I'm finding it very difficult to work with a quarter, but like I said, i've had the book only a day now. My hands are also pretty big, so that may have something to do with working with a quarter. They aren't that big, but I consider them "fatty"
I want to try to eventually master using a quarter, since people usually always have them, so that's what i'm really trying to learn to use. But you have to learn to crawl before you walk, or do you?
I'm going to give the book a week or two and then i'm going to get a dvd to help supplement my learning. If someone could elaborate on my question though, that would be awesome.
