    My learning order is more or less like this, nail the four fundamentals in whichever order you prefer, and then move on to other variations of the base tricks, then connect them. I'm just a little better than the average beginner, just by knowing all these fundamentals and their variations; past these easy self-taught tricks, I suggest you go out and actually find other pen spinners that can teach you stuff they know (like I did when i found esp at my high school, it was tight)

    Thumbaround: Regular, Reverse, Fingerless, and Multiple variations.
    -Learn to catch Thumbaround in different finger slots for other tricks.
    Sonic: Regular, Inverse, and in multiple finger slots.
    Charge: Regular and Reverse, in all finger slots, thumbflap.
    -Shadows: palm down charges will lead into shadows.
    Fingerpass: Normal and Reverse, in all finger slots and thumbflap, get good at this for fluidity.
    -Twisted Sonic is essentially a charge combined with a fingerpass.

    Other things to add on to fundamentals: Palm up/down variations, busts and baks, wiper tricks. These I suggest finding other pen-spinners to teach, because no amount of description on forum posts can teach as easily as watching somebody do it, and conversing with others in the process of learning.

    Considering Sonic is a fundamental I'd say learn that. It's a foundation for many other core tricks, there's a reason it's one of the 4 fundies. You'll be hard pressed to find any trick you can learn in a day, most take at least week to learn and much longer to master.

    Probably learning the Korean Back Around in all main slots would be good and really help widen you trick base and combo potential. You already know busts and if you want you could try learning Double and Triple Bust, but you may rather want to focus on starting to form non-obvious combos. Like Sonic 34-23 > Twisted Sonic 23-12 is a pretty obvious connection, but try coming up with things that take a little more practice and thought. This will be easier once you learn Baks too because there are many possible transitions into Baks.

    After Baks you'll have most of the introductory tricks learned, so you could go for slightly less common tricks, like Palm Spin and Swivel, to further increase combo variation. Basically after Baks and Palm Spin learn whatever you want and start focusing on creating 2 or 3 "quality" combos that you don't easily learn in like 2 minutes. In regards to specific tricks after Baks, really just go for anything, like power tricks (e.g., Hai Tua and Palm Spin > FL TA), or perhaps Wiper linkages, or Reverses/Inverses of tricks, or whatever because you do have a lot of tricks down, so combos should be one of the next big steps in addition to whatever tricks you learn.

    Can do a lot of tricks minus power. Now that im kind of lost, should I be learning power to improve the quality of my pen spinning.

    - I did like two hai tuas ever, could definitely work on that
    - Learned Sym bak

    Thats just about it lol

    I want to learn either the Bak or the Bust, but I don't know which one I should start with.

    I know all fundamentals in pretty much all fingerslots more or less, with shadows, easy hybrids like fake doubles, tw. sonic bust and powerpass nailed. What should I learn next? Im stuck now, and I'm resorting to learning weird and probably very unused tricks like I-sonic and anti gravity. Please help, or maybe should I start psing with my right hand, cos im a scrub lefty and my right hand sucks.

    It's your choice, you can try to make a combo by link the tricks you learnt together, learn some more tricks you think it's cool such as power, wiper and infinity variation, spin variation, sonic variation (flush sonic, demon's sonic, angel's sonic, etc), fingercross, or some fel2fram tricks. You can try to spin with another hand to become 2-hand spinner, don't forget to learn some transfer tricks too.

    If you don't know what to learn, I recommend you to watch other spinners' combos, especially on solo videos and collaboration videos.

    Im a new spinner started today and I'm loving the community.

    I was wondering, ppl say that TA is easy and it's good to start with, I found that TA is super hard for me, But i was able to learn Fingerpass normal + reverse

    Did anyone felt that TA is hard ?

    Am i learning in a bad sequence ?
    If not what should i learn next ?

    Thanks in advance
