"Guess" Tutorial

WARNING! Info dump imminent. Please excuse my garrulity.

This is a tutorial for a trick I made up back in 2009 or 2010 called guess. If you have seen my first video, the first thing you will probably notice is that this is a much easier and less technical trick than my other tricks. This is also my first venture into making tutorials, so any feedback/comments are most welcome, but please be kind.

Before you watch the tutorial, let me make some additional comments on the trick and tutorial.

The mount for this trick I have been doing for several years. I have never seen any one else do it, so I am officially naming it the guess mount. I have always thought it was a cool looking mount, so if you don’t learn the trick at least learn the mount; it should give you some new ideas to play around with. Also, I might make a video showing some variations of the mount this weekend.

The hardest parts of this trick are probably the two pinky chopsticks. The only advice I can give is practice. As far as I know, there hasn’t been any tutorials for tricks involving the pinky, so I hope learning this trick inspires you to try landing the yoyo on different fingers. Remember: you have more than just two fingers and a thumb, and you never know what you might come up with.

One last thing. Some of the text descriptions in the video don’t stay up for very long. Windows movie maker does not let you choose how long they stay up, so whenever a large amount of text appears, you might have to pause the video. I am sorry for this inconvenience, but the problem is beyond my control.

Anyway, I hope you learn and enjoy the trick. Have fun!

P.S. I have a Wonder Woman and Orange Tulips tutorial that will be up in about week. So keep your eyes peeled.

Nice! The pinky chopsticks is pretty cool!

And Boston jams.

That’s not actually true lol… but as for the video…
The tutorial was a little fast… not that fast but still fast… another thing i think you should have chucked the music or turned down the volume a little… as for the trick, that’s great! It was nice and technical and also the pinky move was very innovative… that was a great trick…

for the text you can actually choose how long it’s up in windows movie maker just takes a little searching.

Indeed they do. ;D

What do yo mean by it was a little fast? Were some parts hard to follow?

I just figured out that you can drag and extend clips in the timeline. I will make sure to do this if I do any more tutorials. Thanks.

Sorry you didn’t like the music. I thought it fit well. To each his own I guess. I am glad you enjoyed the trick though. :slight_smile:

Well, sort of… but the main problem was you didn’t really give enough time to digest the information…

Do you have any suggestions on how I can slow things down?

I actually thought that the teaching of the trick wasn’t too short at all. I thought it was well put together and demonstrated more then we’ll enough to understand. Also, very cool with incorporating the pinky finger in the trick. That’s a sweet trick and one that I’m adding to my list to learn! Thanks!

I thought I did a good job on pacing the steps, but I guess different people have different opinions on such things. :-\

Thanks a lot! I hope you have as much fun learning the trick as I did making it.

That was dope!!! Super flow Yo!

Slow down the clips or repeat them…
