# [Member Intro]i am new

Hi there! It's me! So, I am completely new to this community. I started cubing when I had a few old cubes in my house, and I learned to solve them about a month ago. I'm starting out and getting faster, but still a time of about 5 minutes to solve. Can someone help explain, what to do, where to go, how to learn, so yeah?

what to do
make sure you're having fun
where to go
youtube is a great resource for everything!
how to learn
Assuming you're using a beginner's method, the first thing to do is pick a speedsolving method. there's a few videos on this on youtube about how to pick one, but remember that picking a method isn't a full commitment right now. you can experiment and have fun with different methods. just make sure you're always having fun, and when you think you have a decent grasp on the big 3 of speedsolving, you can commit to one. here's a video on the big 3: (vid)

I don't actually know XD. It's a stickerless cube, but with black stickers to look neon. Here is where I got it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XFPXJW3/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Yes, I know. It's from Amazon. But it is kinda quick. It helped me get from a 10 min solve to a 2 min solve.

Also, BTW do you know someone named Max Pastuskov? They have a
brother who's a cuber.

keep practicing until you can solve under a minute, you should then consider learning a new method such as CFOP or Roux. Just watch this video. Good luck

Ok, well I would really recommend getting the MF3RS2 from Thecubicle.us. It is an awesome 3x3 and I use it as my main:
