Hi from an amateur

Postby mismatchgaz » Jul 30th, '12, 10:53

Hey folks
I came across this forum after talking to someone my local magic shop and decided to take a look.
I've only recently started learning "magic", i put it like that as by magic i mean proper techniques and sleights.
As with alot of people i've had a fascination with magic for a while now but recently saw some street performances from Daniel Garcia and was blown away with a new style of tricks i'd not encountered before. It seemed like card magic with a modern twist (Alot of these performances i then discovered were using the ultragaff deck).
So i began doing some research and reading and here i am.
I am to start with the very basics and dabble in a few aspects of classic magic first and then progress from there.
