Beginner needs some help!

I’m working on an assignment for a graduate course where I have to teach myself how to do something using only Youtube videos and forums. I chose to learn 2 to 3 yo-yo tricks.

So far I’ve gotten walk the dog down and I have two weeks from this Sunday to master 1-2 other tricks. Any suggestions of tricks that are easy enough to learn in a short period of time?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like a fun little project! I’d go with the classic tricks. You’ve already learned walk the dog so maybe add rock the cradle and/or loop the loop to your repertoire. And hey, who knows, you might end up coming back to learn some more.

Good luck and have fun!

Great project. I would go with “rock the Baby” and a picture trick like “Eiffel Tower”.
