Oh thanks! That "gold" Trick has some potential to improve my memo. Also is there some sort of list available, specifically regarding for audio letter pairs? I have a list myself which is very much flexible but I use that mainly for my corner memo.
I don't know of any audio-specific lists, but you can try regular letter pair docs. Max Hilliard's has almost all one-syllable words so that'll work well as a starting point at least. Other 3-style docs with letter pairs can work too.

I average around 2:00-2:20 on 3BLD. Do you guys think it's worth it for me to learn Eka/Orozco?
If you are serious about bld, then try learning 3-style. Both Orozco and 3-style uses comms but 3-style does it in a more efficient and is faster. I transitioned from m2/op to 3-style around the 2 min mark and recommend others too.

I say go for it, learn Orozco or Eka if you want, and then use it to transition, or you can stay on it. I feel people don't like Orozco as a method itself, which I find odd, I quite like it.
Yeah, it seems like there's a lot of RUD turning in Orozco, and I'm a big fan of RUD turning.

I'm a noob at 3BLD, so take this with a grain of salt. I think 3-Style corners is easier to learn and it will make a greater times in your solves (since M2 is fairly fast already).

I'm sure this question has been asked many times, but should I learn 3style edges or corners first? Which one is easier to learn/ will make a bigger difference in my times?
Yeah, corners is easier to learn because the algs are more similar. Edge comms have face interchanges, slice interchanges, and M' U2 M U2 type comms, so there's more going on. Also, assuming you use OP/M2, 3-style corners will make a bigger impact on your solves. Ultimately though, it doesn't matter since it's not like you have a comp coming up without enough time to learn both.

Solving a cube blindfolded seems like a pretty difficult task, but from what I've heard, it's into that hard. I have tried multiple tutorials in the last day or two and just haven't gotten anywhere. I thought about just giving up on it, but I think I could do it. So, I am going to start getting serious about it. I doubt I'll see any fast improvement, but we'll just have to wait and see. If you guys have any tips that you could give me, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Please sub to my YouTube Channel and thanks for reading.

Happy Cubing,

Please do not self promote on this thread.

My thoughts on Blind is that it is a super interesting event, that requires a lot of preparation.

I learned from watching jperm's video, and from asking him some questions that helped me at least successfully do two solves, one I fortunately caught on video.

I eventually gave up from frustration because of the amount of time it took to pick out all the pieces, write them down, create a mnemonic device, go extremely slow to avoid mistakes, only to open my eyes to a half solved(if that) cube.
I'm certain the mistake wasn't in the solve, rather with missing a step in set up. Parity seldom seemed to be come up.

I would spend 10 minutes setting it up then nearly that long "solving"

I just focused back on my speedcubing and let it go.

I may try again someday.

I pretty much gave up
