Lol I like how he takes his blindfold off with such urgency, then just freezes looking at the screen, as if all the need to rush is gone XD

Maskow what is the easiest way to learn your letter scheme for your corners using old pochman?

I hold white on top, green on left, red on front, blue on right, orange on back and yellow on that bottom. What is the quickest way to learn your letter scheme well.

I find it amusing that Maskow doesn't even use letters.

I would advise you to learn the letter of the first sticker of each side (as in the one that comes first in the alphabet) and "count" from those stickers during solves. With practise, you'll just learn where the letters are and you won't need to count anymore (Of course this only works if you go around the cube in an alphabetical order).

That sounds like a really good idea on learning the letter scheme. The video was very interesting and I hadn't got a clue that Maskow visualised using pictures.

Thanks I will learn it until I can immediately point to a piece and identify what letter it is.
When I was starting out, I leant the first letter of each side, for me it was A E I M Q U. Then I would just count down the until the letter I needed. Also, might be good to switch to white on top, green infront if you want a hand from me.
