If you’re a beginning magician, the most important thing you can do is master a few fundamental moves and build on them as you progress.
Take card tricks, for example. You’ll find an overabundance of then on YouTube. Some are brilliant, others are, well, not brilliant. But trying to learn as many card tricks as you can instead of starting with the basics (as you would in any other pursuit or profession) is a mistake. Sure, you’ll have a few cool tricks to show people, but outside of that small repertoire, you won’t be fully prepared to perform something impromptu at a party, for example.
This tutorial, filmed at San Diego State, teaches three truly useful card principles you’ll use for the rest of your life. While they’re not actually tricks, you can use them in a countless number of effects.
