The sleight-of-hand in this lesson runs the gamut from manipulation, color-changes, and flourishes to more secretive techniques like bottom- and second-dealing.

Just about everything here is considered "advanced," requiring dedication and practice to perfect, but you'll find that time spent to be very rewarding.

First, we'll look at some of the staples of stage card manipulation, like keeping one or more cards hidden while showing your hand empty. Dan teaches you how to show both sides of your hand while the cards remain hidden. Plus... he tips his method that allows you to spread your fingers.

To reward you for practicing this important sleight, Dan shows you how to use it to find a selected card in a very impressive way.

You'll also learn to pull cards one-at-a-time from the air, or vanish multiple cards one-at-a-time and bring them back individually, or all at once.

Then, Dan applies the previous manipulation technique (with a simple substitution) to find a fist full of dollars in an unexpected place.

Next, Dan brings in reinforcements to show you how to produce seemingly endless fans of cards... naturally, after quite a bit of practice.

Then, it's on to Color-Changes, as Dan shows you multiple ways to change one card into another, including simply pulling off the center pip... or waving your hand over it for a moment, or giving it a quick slap. And he even teaches you a way to change two random cards into a perfect pair.

Next, you'll learn Dan's favorite way to secretly exchange one card for another, and he even shows you the perfect trick to practice your new technique.

Once you've learned these versatile moves, Dan puts it all together into a routine that gives you a chance to show off your sleight-of-hand skills.

But we're not done yet. Now, Dan tips his tried-and true technique for bottom dealing and, again, gives you a simple and effective trick in which to employ it.

Plus, he shows you a couple of ways to deal seconds, and once again, how to use it in the perfect effect to create an uncanny coincidence.

Then, we'll finish up by looking at a few basic flourishes, like the ribbon drop (or waterfall), the springing cascade, and even a one-handed cut.

There's quite an assortment of challenging and rewarding sleights to master, and my tips will give you a head-start on each and every one of them.

The limits of Dan Harlan Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2017
There's a lot of material in this lesson. Some of it's good, but there's big problems with the back palm material. Harlan's a great teacher, but this time he's tackling a subject he's not very good at. He has his own way of doing it that looks awkward. He's using white-bordered cards which you only want to do if you're wearing gloves. I'd advise looking for videos by experts on the back palm instead.

The back palm was once considered an essential move for magicians, but today it is mostly used in manipulation acts -- Jeff McBride, Juliana Chen, etc. If you're not interested in that stuff you can skip over the back palm section and not miss anything important. His tricks based on the other methods are great for beginner and intermediate learners, as they rely on misdirection more than perfect technique.

I've become a fan of Dan Harlen's Tarbell project and this one is a good example of what a great idea this was for him to visualize the text. Being a beginning magician the info within is invaluable. I also love how he brings some of the tricks up to date.

I got a lot out of this. Most of these I knew but I have been doing magic for a long time. This helped me with the ones I already knew to make them better and taught me good ones I never knew. Is it worth the price most people are asking. If you want to get your card work better with sleights and color changes it is if not then don't.

It is SO Nice to see modernized card manipulation taught by a Master student of magic. Use the first twenty minutes of this awesome Tarbell lesson to start off a show by getting right into the action by doing having 5 cards selected by different people then do vol 2 page 165 minute 18:59 in the video which was to vanish cards one at a time and reproduce them, then I would take one single selected card then do the first trick in Tarbell 10 which was the rising card escape vol1. Page 194. That's how I would start my show with that sequence of card work. Hope I made any sense. Overall, I highly recommend this video. Dan went in on this one. It's really great. Oh, they should turn this lesson into a dvd. It's that good!
