Learn the In-The-Hands Faro Shuffle
Many magicians consider the faro shuffle to be one of the toughest moves in card magic. The thought of performing consistant, perfect faros seems an impossible dream - until you read this ebook.
The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magician’s arsenal of sleights. It is a genuine shuffle; the cards are truly being mixed. But it is also a controlled shuffle, meaning that the resulting order of the cards is not random. For this reason, it is an excellent adjunct to memorized deck work. Michael likes to start with a memdeck that has been given six out-faro shuffles. In front of the spectators he gives the deck two more out-faro shuffles. The deck has returned to stack order, but the spectators have seen two absolutely legitimate-looking in-the-hands shuffles. As far as the spectators are concerned, the cards have been shuffled, and must be in a random order. Very powerful indeed!
Over the years, Michael has developed a very effective method for teaching the faro shuffle. He used this method for personal instruction, but he also discovered that the method of teaching is so clear that his presence wasn’t necessary. In other words, he could teach the method long distance via this ebook.
