Just last night I learned the garrote. I know it's not that amazing, but I only had a book before(does not help) and I was at a store looking at some diabolo stuff, and a store person came up to me and said,"I wonder if you know any tricks that I don't." So I showed her the magic finger, and then I taught her how to do it, then she said, do you want to learn a trick? So I said sure, so she taught me the garrote.

Vortex! Well kinda i have to unwrap the second diab, but i got it all in one smooth motion, so it looks good. And i got FW into a fan, basic stuff but it looks quite nice. Still no luck with suns.

Garotte is that old trick where you duicide in a whipposition right? I learnt this too in a combo leading to a double duicide (from Mattias Jönsson). It´s old but still a really cool trick.

What is the "magic finger"?

No, I think it's the one where you spin it round your neck, hence the name.

Yes, now that you say it you are right (the other was called a "fan" in the MB-book) but what does garotte mean? Still wondering what the magic finger is also?

I meant the golden finger. It's the one where you tie a magic knot, the set the diabolo on the tips of you first 2 fingers, and it sits there and spins. The garotte was an old weapon, it was a piece of string used to strangle someone.

^Oh thank you very much that clears it all up :).

Today got the eiffel from diabolowhos votw (TY diabolowho). The exit didn´t work so probably entered it the wrong way though. Also learnt fan/s-fan airwrap (didn´t work to exit either and could only last for a few secs but it felt like it was working correctly).

Managed two 3d suns today (straight from a shuffle), maybe 5 yesterday.  Still far from solid, but they're starting to make sense.  The big thing for me was being told that I was pulling the sun towards my body with my left hand so it was becoming a 3 dimensional sun.  The old 'stick ends together, left stick pointing forward, right hand pointing backward' advice is making them work sometimes.   Still not had them work enough to work out what else will get them solid.

Finally realised my problem with 42sun while working on 3d suns.  I spent several years only ever doing right suns with two, so have had to go back and get into left suns for 3d stuff.  I've just (finally) realised that the reason my suns were too slow was that I was starting them with an upward movement of my left hand, which is fine for 2 but seems to cause problems for 3.  If I start moving downwards immediately, they're quick enough to make stuff start working.  Seems obvious, but I've only worked it out because I'm enthused at the moment so have been practicing enough to spot things like that.
