It's a tricky enough concept to explain in person, let alone over text.  I suggest you make your way over to a convention where someone who fully understands is attended and bug them with beer and string till you get it.

I for one don't fully get it, but get the idea.  I think it can happen alot when you're diaboloing to music and trying to hit the beats.

the way i see it. the more beer you have and the more confused you actually get about what trick your going to do next...thats when you stumble apon third base. but then i look at from a 'key position' point of view when i'm out playing

unlike you two (it seems anyway) i haven't been able to talk this idea over with anyone in the know so its quite difficult to picture, although i do definitely agree with the music thing, hmmm strange ground

Ive had third base explained to me by its two leading exponents yet again at the bjc.

I then went camping for a week on my own in the highlands, met with a rabi, a priest and a scientologist and many other religious leaders to numerous to mention. I then fasted and beat myself with reeds. this didn't help. So i signed on and started diaboloing in my backgarden listening to god awful Edith bowman. this did 

Think yorkshire, think fratboy humour, think long diabolo sessions.

think I may tell you or at least ask spink to if you buy me a beer at Birmingham.

I went to school with Edith, y'know?  AND Sean explained the premise of the whole thing to me at the sod-the-parade-session on Saturday in Nottingham.  Could the two possibly be related???

so its a way of thinking whilst playing/tweaking to music on the diabolo, which can only be performed through...tweaking? and not the tricks you do. elements of movement?
does it have any affects on a person style? ???

Were you not in the know, there Spinky?  No click for you sir.

I'm sure it can be drummed into you on Saturday and then you'll find it to be quite useless.  I feel bad for being unable to enlighten people on the idea, but then it's not my idea.

I'd say it definitely has an effect on style. If you have no interest in style (say if you are a trick robot) or don't tweak it might not be for you.
Music is not essential just a willingness to play on the boundries.

huuuuuummmmm yet another spooky third base related coincidence Mr Grant!

Id say music was not necessary, I'd go as far to say that Chris DE Burg playing in the background would actually impede third base diabolo. however I am just a padowan third baser

-clicks?  you should of just posted a blank post, its the silence where their should of been a click that hurts the most.

The whole concept boggles the mind.

Can't diabolo just be throwing around pretty spinny things in a hap hazard manner in the intention of creating amazing tricks?!
