Wow! Thanks a lot Ollie. This sounds very good idea to practise memo.
Speaking as someone who went from 4min to sub 20 seconds (with some sub 10 singles, PB is around 8), some things that helped me, in very short:how do pro BLDiers memo under 10 secs?? What makes their memo so fast?
Thanks Fabio!!Speaking as someone who went from 4min to sub 20 seconds (with some sub 10 singles, PB is around 8), some things that helped me, in very short:
4min down to 1min average: Get good letter pairs. Develop a solid list, with solid images. Things that are visual, big, loud, funny, whatever. Learn some PAO as early as possible.
1min down to to 40s: Learn audio memorization, especially for Edges. Add rhythm and pitch to the sounds.
40s to 20s: Learn full audio. Rush a lot, DNF a lot. Improve your execution, make it automatic as much as you possibly can.
20s and below: Full audio, rush and review in a loop as you execute.
I meant using audio for both edges and cornersThanks Fabio!!
But what did you meant by learning full audio?? My current memo time is around 20-23(PB is around 16-18 secs) secs by audioing edges and sentences/ images for corners and I average around 1:15 with M2/Old Pochmann(PB is 56 secs)
Lastly, does learning a faster execution method can also improve my average memo time.
Audio or echoic memory is very short term and do you think its ideal to memorize the cube solely with audio??I meant using audio for both edges and corners
And yeah, faster execution means you don't need to retain the memo for as long as you did before, which in turn means you're able to rush more and take more risks - to get great rewards.
It seems like, at world record speeds today, it's hard to imagine that any other option is even possible to achieve top results. Do any of the current sub-20 solvers use something other than audio for their memo? If so, how do they do it?Audio or echoic memory is very short term and do you think its ideal to memorize the cube solely with audio??
It is practice that's needed but you might benefit from breaking the process down. Tracing pieces is very helpful and you can do lots of it by doing small hand scrambles between attempts and ignoring orientation. Maybe even take the centre stickers off. You can also practice making the words from lists of letter pairs http://bestsiteever.ru/memotest/I find this very discouraging because I have trouble even retaining edges in audio memory - it feels like it's almost too much for me. But that's probably because it takes me too long to build the memory to begin with - perhaps it's just practice that's needed.
