Posted:I would like to point out that while it looks nice, it's not quite a proper split-time butterfly weave - you're doing 1 beat on the same side and 3 on the other side rather than 1 and 2 just like a normal weave. I think the reason is you're sort of turning your body and adding an extra beat behind your shoulder... the hand motions need to match the regular 3 beat weave to do it "properly".

Posted:It's not easy with the BF weave - I was doing exactly the same thing as you for absolutely ages before I actually counted my beats properly! smile

Posted:I can do endless beat counts on each side technicaly because I'm using a ttn motion. I can also do this all behind my back but I think I'll post more vids because I like to get feed back from people about how to improve my techniqe. smile Thanks BTW

Posted:yeah it looks like you have to concentrate on exactly what both hands are doing in split, but i bet once u start to get it, it just becomes another pattern to remember.

Posted:It's just like when you start learning the weave and you have to concentrate on keeping the "one-over-under" motion going - I find that repeating that helped me keep track of the beats while I was learning it smile
