Pinky Count troubles

  1. So.. I have been practicing the pinky count and I pretty much have the hang of it... but... my count is slow. Will this just become quicker with time? I find if I try count quicker I land up getting an extra card or so.

    Is this just a matter of practice? I am very new to practicing this sleight, only about 2 days now....

    Thanks a lot.
     
  2. The pinky count happens on the "off" beat as your hand drops down to your side in a relaxed position as you look at the spectator and converse. This will also take the heat off of you and your hands.
     
  3. It will also take a lot of practice. I keep a deck in the car, and while I'm in traffic I practice the pinky count. Eventually, you just build up the muscle in your hand that makes it easier. Then challenge yourself to pinky count a certain number of cards as quickly as possible.

  5. I should have put a disclaimer to not do as I do xD It can be a distraction, but I mostly do it in standstill in traffic. Still. Don't distract yourself while driving.

  6. Due to this forum not allowing revelations, I've private messaged you with another way of doing this.
