|Description||The Coin Spin is a fundamental move that forms the basis for many tricks. It involves spinning a coin between the thumb and the first two fingers.|
|Start||Hold a coin flatwise between the thumb and the index finger. The thumb is on top and heads is facing the thumb.|
|Comments||With practice you should be able to do this spin very quickly
When you get it working correctly, the middle
finger stays still while the other two do
most of the work.
This is spinning leftwards (assuming your using the right hand). You can also do the spin to the right, forwards and backwards (rightwards is the hardest for me).
Once you can do this trick smoothly practice it using the middle and ring fingers, and the ring and pinkie fingers. At first this will seem awkward but these variations are essential for some of the other tricks described later.
