CD Faro Shuffle Michael Close
Learn the Faro Shuffle!
Updated Version, in PDF format.
From Michael Close:
"The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magician窶冱 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.
Over the years, I have developed a very effective method for teaching the faro shuffle. I used this method for personal instruction, but I also discovered that the method of teaching is so clear that my presence wasn窶冲 necessary. In other words, I could teach the method long distance. In 2001, I released my first CD-ROM, Michael Close on the Faro Shuffle, which detailed this method. Feedback from purchasers was excellent.
The Faro CD-ROM has been revised so it more closely resembles my other ebooks, Closely Guarded Secrets and The Complete Workers Series. Five video clips provide detailed information on conditioning the deck, the proper grips, applying pressure, the twist, and further hints and tips. Additional text provides supplemental information and helps reinforce important concepts. The combination of text and video provides you with the most effective learning experience possible. Pay attention, put in some practice time, and you will soon be doing perfect faro shuffles with confidence."
