Hello guys, i've always been interested in magic. My dad has been a professional clown for over 30+ years and so I grew up surrounded by many cool people and even magicians. Some years ago(to be honest) I started practicing card magic and other tricks, but I quit after a while (being young I carried on other things). Now I decided to pick up and start fresh. What advice can you guys give me to start in the right direction? Im really a newbie, I can perform some basic tricks like the do as I do by OZ, synergy by OZ, ultimate pick a card trick by OZ and a two card monte. Tricks that require basic moves really. What's the best way to practice and gain confidence, I tend to get a bit nervous
. I have the Greatest beginner magic free dvd from penguin, Paul Wilson's Royal Road to card magic and a Michael Ammar easy to master card miracles dvd. Last, should I try to learn card handling, breaks, shuffles etc separate to being required for a trick or as I need to along the way. Thanks in advance!
