I really love card flourishes, and I know a couple. But I have short fingers, will this be a problem if I want to learn stuff like the stuff that Dan and Dave do?

Provided this is a serious question and not a joke, not at all.

Lee Asher does a lot of great, complex flourishes and his hands are incredibly small (at some point on his website, you could view a PDF of his hands in actual size). Hand size, unless you have abnormally, inhumanly small hands, should not matter very much at all. :)

Yes of course this is serious. Why would it be a joke?

Alright, cool, thanks.

I don't have really long fingers and there is very little I can't do. It just may take a bit more practice before you are ready. You may also have to make a few adjustments on various types of flourishes. IE. most people(with long fingers) reach the thumb around the width of the deck to control deck when doing a tripple charlier. I can't do that so I learned to control the motion with my forefinger along the top of the deck. Good Luck!
