7x7 parity looks extremely confusing....I just find patterns and repetition in algorithms and learn by doing. Parity algorithms can be long and complex but there are patterns there to learn so I just grind out a few hundred and it usually sticks. Knowing when to use a particular algorithm, that's another thing entirely...
I may not be the best person to ask though as I'm a long-term member of the 30-60 club...
Break each alg down into segments, and drill those. Put it all together, and tou get the alg. Set a reminder 10 minutes later, then when it goes off, do the alg. Keep doing this until you've got it down, then just repeatedly spam it.Do you have a good technique for learning algorithms?
Personally I have a terrible memory and favor intuitive or muscle memory.
But I see there's no avoiding having to memorize a lot of algos!
Same here. especially with OLLMy biggest problem is and has always been recall. The algs themselves are not the problem, but connecting them to the correct case takes me a long time to get decent at.
I‘ve learned 2gll for T/U/L and even with lots of drilling using trainers, I still sometimes either do the wrong alg or just freeze trying to recall what alg it is. The problem might be that alot of those algs are so similar, as well as the recognition for T and U being basically the same. Someone wrote you should practice recognizing a case and recalling the alg, but how do you do that? Setting up a trainer so it only gives scrambles for that specific case, or maybe also it‘s mirror, and just getting used to seeing that case and doing its alg?
It‘s really frustrating as I want to finish 2gll and long term expand to zbll, but I really struggle to motivate myself to move on to H and Pi 2gll when T/U/L are still not at the level of say, OLL/PLL. I hear about people learning zbll in a few months, while I struggle already with just 2gll. Sure I‘m not a teen anymore and have that much time for cubing, but still..
