There are some tricks that, when you miss them, the miss just looks so painfully obvious to everyone watching. Other tricks, you can miss, and turn it into something that appears you may have done that on purpose.
If I had to vote which trick is the most obvious when missed, I’d have to go with an Eli hop.
Oh, and for the trick that still looks good on a miss, I’d go with a trapeze, cause you can always turn that into something that makes it look like you did it on purpose anyway. Missing that never looks too bad Sometimes, that just turns into another trick, because you miss hard enough and it’s naturally a pinwheel or something. So, you can get credit for doing a pinwheel and spin that pinwheel back around and get a second chance at what you were trying to do in the first place.
So, in other words, what tricks do you guys use on or off stage, that even if you miss, you have a plan B trick set up in your head for the miss? I’m curious what the original trick is, and if you miss, what you turn it into instead of the original trick. I bet people miss tricks all the time and just have their poker face on, and a plan B trick set up in their head so it still looks planned.
So, anyone have any they typically use?
