To be able to spin poi with that level of control would be a fine thing indeed!

Probablly should have asked for constructive critisim if anyone has time. (Except for music comments tongue )



And I can't really ask without analysing it myself first...



Here's my criticism but I'm not sure if it anys use? I probably need external view points. Most of it I just have to solve with practice (I hope). Any tips / hints / Places to explore.

I've never seen anyone critisise there own video. Is there a reason for this? Is it not the done thing? I can always come back and edit this post I guess biggrin



General comments

-------------------------

* Music just layed over the top. Not actually spinning to it.

* Bit boring (I think this is cause it's me and I will never see anything in my video that make me go "Oh how do you do that!" ubblol I hope anyway)

* To many stalls. Need more variation. (But they're my favorite at the moment!)

* Nice jumper

* Great music tongue



Timed comments

=============

0:35 Crap stall with left hand.

0:47 Hyperloop looks forced breaks flow abit

0:57 Left hand lags on exit from butterfly flower

1:27 Parallel timeing out after stall

1:31 Ditto

1:48 Isolated weave very messy

1:57 Nasty parallel to split time change

2:03 Isolated fountain falls to bits

2:08 Failed BHB WW Tangle

2:23 Back to camera

2:38 Dodgy Double stall

2:52 Hyperlloop look dodgy. (I think the poi ar too long and I have ot move my head back)

2:55 Failed BHB WW Tangle

3:17 Failed stalled entry into BHB Butterfly weave from BHB Weave.

Posted:eek Detailed analysis, Prof. Dr. Garthy wink



i think mainly two points:

a) spin to the music you want the video to be to, so it's all syncronised, i think that makes a lot of difference



b) i think you're right about the huge number of stalls, they're all nice but a little repetitive after a while. Maybe do some more varied stuff (which i have seen you do wink ), like antispin,leg stuff, strange & wonderful airwraps, body wraps, etc..

Criticism: The colour of the jumper ...

Spinning: To me it seems that you are spinning from the "tip of your toes". Try to balance more (Tai Chi for example). Bend your knees and try to turn around your spine ubbrollsmile

... and probably find someone who is not explaining Tai Chi via the internet wink

Again - I enjoyed watching it

Posted:Wicked stuff garthy,

Dunno what to say except keep up the good work man,

Maybe mix the stalls and wraps up a bit, play with those flowers where your arms go opposite direction to poi, and play under the legs ~ hell if i can do it with my little legs i'm sure you could pull off some crazy stuff.

Thanks for the credit, i still haven't learnt the crazy garthyLoop lol
