Also wondering if it is hard to learn TuRBo for corners? I think it is good to use TuRBo if I sometimes want to learn 3-cycles. Is Audio-memo good for that?
Sub40 full solve or just memo? Memo certainly yes, full solve, would require serious amount of practice.
Wouldn't recommend TuRBo corners, it's sometimes very hard to see what's the cycle after some harder setup moves.
Audio memo for corners - yes.

Yeah, I now that it is really hard to get sub-40 with any method/memo. I were just wondering if any of the good cubers use that memory method.

Also, what do you recommend for corners?

Ignore the title, it pretty nice way to solve corners, it is based upon commutators it is a 3-cycle and has just a tiny bit larger move count than 3-style.
The point is to reduce every 3-cycle to one of three types of cycles that you're familiar with. A perm, 2 U stickers, one sticker in F/B/R/L, or two stickers in F/B/R/L and your buffer in U. It's extremely efficent method, and I think it's closest you can get to 3-style, because you are doing the commutators, but for some hard to see/hard to setup cases you may learn some 3-style algorithm that will speed you up. Just like edge TuRBo -> 3-style transition, but only for corners. So you don't get too restricted trying to reduce the case to TuRBo case, but any of 3-type comms that you can easily execute.

Hope this wasn't confusing.
Cheers!
Thanks for the link anyway, but I think I might stick to OP corners and gradually learn BH like Zane said.

I think most advanced Blind solvers create images interacting with each other or sentences for edges (using those kinds of images). Except, I think usually people assign a lettering scheme (such as spefz) and then memorize those letter pairs using Letter pair images.
For corners, most people use a lettering scheme (such as spefz) and then create sounds on the go as they solve (e.g. RGSMCH would become something like RaG SMitCH)

4. I want to get into blindfold cubing, what is the best method to start with?

Classic/Old Pochmann.

6. ## 3x3 BLD: Visual Memo

I had a quick question. I was going to use letters to memorize my edges but i found that visual memo was easier. Is visual efficient at all or am i setting my self up for failure?

The efficiency of visual memorisation varies from person to person. If it works well for you, stick with it.

8. Hi there. How should i actually train BH algorithms itself?
I mean, there is so much algorithms, and just by blindsolving the chance you solve all in one day is very small.
I know ~270 / 378 corners for now, understand commutators, but sometimes just missing A9-s. Thought to just randomize list of letter-pairs, and do the actual algorithm. Any ideas please?

9. hi

MultiBLD - Are mini cubes allowed? Mini type A etc? Even if your other cubes are regular-sized.
BLD/4BLD/Multi- Are you allowed to touch the cube after you end the solve? Like picking it up to check to see whether it is a success/DNF?

10. 1. I don't see anything in the regulations that would not allow you to use different sized cubes.

2. Always let the judge check before you touch it. But you don't need to pick it up. Chances are that if the 5 visible faces are solved, the 6th should be fine too
