    Default Noah's 3-Style Tutorial

    I know I have a thread for my tutorials, but this one is so special that I think it deserves it's own thread!

    The tutorial is complete! Post below if you have any questions, complaints or praise!


    Part 1: Overview

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYvxVT3vruE

    This is part one of my 3-style tutorial. I recommend this method for anyone averaging around 1:30 and wants to get serious about 3BLD. If you're not quite that fast yet, I'll be releasing a series of videos on how to get sub-1:30 on Cubing World in February =)
    Part 2: Pure Corner Commutators

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok51Ktn1GKg

    In this video I show what a pure commutator is and then show how to use a commutator to cycle three corners.
    Part 3: Corner Commutators Continued

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgXfvgtxt9s

    In this video I continue talking about pure commutators and then move into setup moves. Sorry about the length, but these are some of the most important concepts for 3-style. Enjoy!

    NOTE: The commutators I use throughout this video are not necessarily the ones I would use during a solve. For some of them I am simply trying to demonstrate a certain type of commutator, so I am solving the case a little bit inefficiently.
    Part 4: Making the Transition

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZKK2EXD318

    In this video I show you how, using only the knowledge of pure commutators and setup moves from the last two videos, you can very efficiently work your way up to full 3-style. Enjoy, and good luck!
    Part 5: Edges

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtn0Y6Y8ZQg

    In this video I explain the three main types of edge commutators and talk a little about making the transition. If you have a good grasp of corner comms and setup moves, switching to 3-style for edges should not be very difficult.
    Part 6: Parity

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xGbJ4ic6oE

    Parity method does not really depend on solving method, but switching to an advanced solving method is as good a time as any to learn more advanced parity techniques. Enjoy!
    Part 7: 3BLD Tips

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_NfOaRhqtg

    In this video I talk about some techniques for improving, some ways to detect your mistakes and some things to watch out for in your solves.
    Part 8: 3BLD Example Solves

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMHNtYcw70o

    Here are three example solves. I recommend that you follow along in your orientation on your cube so that you can get the feel of things.
    Part 9: Big Cube Edges

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqeZx2nFCrE

    In this video I talk about commutators for wings and midges on big cubes.
    Part 10: Big Cube Centers

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkWMuWjutnE

    In this final video of my tutorial, I talk about the three different kinds of center commutators for the three different kinds of center pieces.

    I learned BLD once, but I only really use it as a party trick.

    Lol!
    Funny interpretation with coins!
    Too bad that I've already understand comms - I would enjoyed to learn them by your video.
    Imho, you should pay more attention to a distinguishing A B A' B' from B A B' A'. (But maybe you explained it well and I just didn't understand - sorry then).

    Thanks. I was at a restaurant one time and I did some commutators with my silverware, and that's how I thought of it.

    I tried to explain that difference using the terms insertion first and interchange first, but you're right that it was a little brief. I'll elaborate more in my next video.

    I think you should concentrate more on the setups to interchages & stuff. I still don't quite understand.

    i also have struggled trying to learn bh with other videos. i have given up with most of them. hopefully your set of videos will help me understand. i also already well understand the concept of a commutator, however, i did think your explaination was kind of nifty. i also think that this video leaves much to be desired on how to effectively find your interchange (because they aren't always easy to spot).

    Thanks for the feedback. This will help me make the coming videos as helpful as possible.
