Chris,<br><br>I hope you achieve your goal of
learning all those moves to do layer 3 in 1
algorithm.<br>Your method of memorising (as per an earlier post) is
really interesting - could you post an example of a
story? I doubt anybody using normal repetition would be
able to perform such a feat, but using a memory trick
like that may put it within your reach.<br>My way of
memorising is to repeat until I feel I should know the
moves, and then remembering what to me are the key-moves
in the sequence. This is proving to be a slow and
painful method!<br>Does anybody else use memory tricks to
learn the moves quickly? If so maybe you could be the
partner that Chris is after on his long
journey.<br>Whatever method you use for the memorisation, I would be
interested in hearing about it. Post now...

Way I memorize moves is: First learn to quickly
recognize the position in which a move starts. Then, since
I have a terrible time visualizing where cubes are
moving, I forget about that. I first just learn the first
two turns or so of a move; say it starts R U R' U', I
just try to remember R, or R U. I do that with all the
moves. Then as a move turns up again and again, I start
to try to remember the next several turns, R' U'.
Usually you can see how the move finishes from the last
three turns or so.<br><br>I also say the move to myself
as I am doing it when I am learning a new move, I
find this really helps me.<br><br>And then eventually
the move is remembered all in my hands. Your hands
can remember a surprising amount of moves.<br><br>My
huge problem is finding the cube pairs quickly in F2L;
that to me is the biggest challenge with this method.
