So I've decided to put together a video that instead of just showing you how to spin a pencil, I'll actually teach you how to spin a pencil. So let's get started with the basics. We're gonna start with just going Once Around.
As you can see, I'm only using three fingers, the index finger, the middle finger and the thumb. And the pencil is off-center and that most of the weight is off to the left side of the screen here. What I am gonna do is I'm gonna push the pencil around my thumb, and then catch it between my index finger and thumb.
And you'll see that the weight shift goes from the left side to the middle when I catch it. And then when I do it again, I have to kind of shift the weight back to the left. Not only is this technique essential for the more advanced stuff I'm about to show you, but you can also use it to spin anything that's even, similarly shaped to a pen or pencil that's lying around your house, such as a screwdriver or even something as crazy as a banana. Note that I'm using the same basic techniques here. It's all in the weight shift around the thumb.
With the Over and Back, you're gonna wanna start with the pencil brakes between your thumb, your middle finger and your ring finger. The reason for doing that is because the index finger is gonna be used to push the pencil back around the thumb. And then you catch it with your thumb, middle finger and ring finger. This technique and the next one will take considerably more time to learn than just the Once Arounds.
So the last and coolest looking technique I'll be showing you here is the Continuous, which is really just an extension of the Over and Back, because what you are doing is, when the pencil comes back around the thumb, instead of catching it, you're just gonna push it back over with the middle finger. So what you've got is an original pushing of the pencil around the thumb with the middle finger, then back with the index finger, then back with the middle finger, then back with the index finger. You can just do that as many times as...until you make a mistake.
So remember people while you are learning, it's all in the weight balance. And lastly, because I know you are gonna ask. No, I was not in the Bay.
