Tips and Tricks:
So this is tips and tricks about Tutting. You want to be able to have really good smooth lines with really good smooth intricate movements. You want to be able to have that kind of character that's just going to go in on somebody, make them just want to watch you even though they don't want to see what you're just going to demolish them with. The biggest thing is knowing your music. If you know your music, you're going to be able to just continue to keep traveling. It's like being on a highway with no traffic at all. Know your music. If you don't know the music, you're going to be in traffic because you're not going to know what's coming up next. So let it flow, jump into the nice smooth carpool lane and enjoy the ride. And make it basic. Don't try to go all out the box because when you go all out the box it starts getting confusing.
You know, a really good thing to do is always having something to be able to fall back on. You know, some of the guys like to do wrist rolls, they like to just pop everything, get realigned, and if you have a good 'A' count or so that you already memorized, then that's going to be able to get you into a good start or take you out of a motion so you can go into another start.
So, always have about three to four different basic movements that you can also transfer yourself into as you try to build your story with the music that you're trying to show also. "
