I think I will just share some nice solves and what I am learning. I have 17 PLL algs memorized so far (Not the G perms yet because I'm trying to pick the best ones)

Let's start with my first okay Roux solve in the example solve thread

50 STM
y // Inspection
F U2 R U2 L' U L U2 r U r' // FB
D U F U' F' D' l U M2' U L' U' l U l' // SB
U R' F U2' F' R F R' U2 R F' // CMLL
M' U M' U M U M' U2 M // EOLR
U2 M2 U' M2 // L4EP


I'm a CFOP solver BTW, but Roux is pretty fun. I still find CFOP faster, I don't know if that'll change but Roux is a nice method to learn
Interesting solution, the FB can improve a bit, it is generally 5-6 move long.

I use http://cubegrass.appspot.com/block_trainer/ a lot to train my first block. Sometimes I learn interesting solutions and learn new ideas, which make my FB solution more efficient.
Thanks! I learned some stuff, and even figured out a few of the first blocks myself!
- Doing it kinda like keyhole really helps
- Preserve blocks that are a part of FB
- Try solving/helping out multiple pieces at once
- Doing a low movecount 1x2x2 while helping the other 1x1x2 helps

I keep accidentally doing a U while doing lefty D2, like in a A perm. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong and how I should fix it?

Ok I fixed it. I was turning my D's too hard. Now I can do them no problem.

I also learned the G perms, here are the ones I use:

Ga:
R2 U R' U R' U' R U' R2 D U' R' U R D'

Gb:
R' d' F R2 u R' U R U' R u' R2
R' U' R U D' R2 U R' U R U' R U' R2 D

Gc:
R2 U' R U' R U R' U R2 D' U R U' R' D
R2 F2 R U2 R U2 R' F R U R' U' R' F R2 (Headlights on the right)

Gd:
R U R' U' D R2 U' R U' R' U R' U R2 D'
