I am new to magic. Actually i am more intersted in mentalism. Do i need to have any sleight of hand skill to be a good mentalist.I know learning coin magic would help in Bi**et work but a mentalist some times need to use some basic card sleights like T*p change,D*u*le lift etc. And there are mentalist who use cards like Max Maven, Docc Hilford, Luke Jermay....... So my question is should i start with COIN MAGIC or CARD MAGIC before switching to mentalism. OR what are the essential sleights i have to learn ? Right now i am doing card magic alone because i find coin sleigths difficult , i think it requires lot more than just fast hands, like your eye movement, body language and hand movements should look more smooth and natural.
