Posted:Very possible! although alot of people didn't believe me when I started doing it...As long as you don't look at what your doing ("Don't think - feeeeeeeeeeeeeel") it works fine.

Posted:Not only that, he posted a video of the move (with a few others to make people like me feel totally inadequate {g}).http://www.siteswap.org/poi/It took me a week just to figure out what the hell I was supposed to be doing with my hands--I kept falling back into a regular TTN. After that, it took me about one more week to actually get the motion smooth. I also figured out a minor variation on this move. As Bassman does it, one wrist is always crossed over the other. It's also possible to do this so you alternate left wrist over right, wrists uncrossed, and right wrist over left.
