1. Find a performance of a trick on YouTube that you would like to see on my channel, or even film yourself performing the trick and upload it to YouTube.

2. Copy that YouTube link and go to the community page on my channel. (You have to be on a computer to go onto the community page, unfortunately it doesn’t show up on mobile devices)

3. Comment in the page: (whatever you want to say really… like “please teach this!” Or “I would love it if you revealed this!” Something like that.) Then PASTE the link to the performance in your comment.

4. Post your comment! And I will for sure look at everyones request! The people’s tricks that I like will get a special shoutout and a tutorial for the trick in a future video!



  1. Hi, so, first off, great video, you’ve really got the pass down, I’m impressed, second off, i have a music related question, where did you learn the stuff to make your music, and how long have you been doing it?

  2. tbh there are some mistakes in your classic pass tutorial , first of all , you aren't using it to it's full extent , the classic pass can be used as a fancy color change and to find a card , or to get rid (vanish) cards without having the card that you vanished or changed second from the top , thus giving the deck to the spectator is no problem , so it makes it safer , and also the classic pass isn't a very good move if you don't cover it using bigger motion like dribbling cards or rifling , it will look sloppy without an appropriate covering motion , no offense , but I think that's important too

  3. Couldn't help but admire that deck. Theory 11 Contraband, you say? Might have to check out their website.. again. Haha. I know it's none of my business, but maybe you could talk to some playing card companies about potential sponsorships, Nathan. You have a decent sub count, they may hook you up with some freebies AND some cash for promotions. Would make a great addition to the college fund! *You would NOT be a sell-out. There's NO shame in profiting as much as possible from your platform, if you believe in the product.

  4. He is the mann. I learned a lot of magic tricks from his videos. I showed all of my cousins and friends and everyone got amazed. Then I showed This YT channel and everyone started watching. I created my own channel but its for guitar. Plz go and check and watch my yt channel!!

  5. Nice vid but I just wanna say that u need to work on ur cover slightly cuz it looks awkward when u turn around so much and I know that u can make it better so keep it u👍👍👍u can watch xavior spade's 'fix yer tricks'

  6. TheRussianGenius has some great tips if you want some, Mr. Comment Browser. Literally just search Classic Pass Tips and you’ll find it.
    Also, some covers:
    Riffle the new top packet at the back, front, or both if you’re feeling particularly devilish.
    Dribble the new top packet.
    Just jiggle it. It’s better seen than explained.
    They’re all called their respective cover action and then pass (jiggle pass, etc).
