Shower sucks don't learn shower if you are a noob this will probably set your juggling skill back by 7 hours as once you have mastered 2 ball shower (10 catches or more) then sucks you have to learn cascade good notice to beginners!
Damn. First pattern I learned was the shower.
I always wondered what kept my juggling back.
Did you learn the shower in both directions before learning cascade?
I wonder has anyone ever learned box (or any other pattern) as their very first?
No I taught myself to shower leading with my right hand (took one night, about 6 hours) the following morning someone explained the cascade to me and I learnt it in about 10 minutes
That's quick for both, much more so than me anyway. Are you left handed? I was wondering if your shower throw was the practice for your weaker side of the cascade.
No I'm right handed.
I taught myself the shower because I didn't know any other pattern.
Same when I learned 4 clubs in singles, I just assumed that doing it in doubles was harder.
There were no internet tutorials back then and I didn't have a computer anyway...
Interesting. So what did you learn after the cascade? Shower the other side?
7 hours isn't much of a hardship!
But yes, a 2 ball shower is a hard habit to break for someone just starting out in juggling that isn't used to breaking habits.
A non-juggler sees a juggler with 3 balls running continuous patterns. Naturally the beginner who can't do 3, will try 2 balls & the 2 ball shower is the natural choice because it is more of a rolling pattern whereas the 2 ball exchange has a beginning, a pause & an end. I wonder if you only performed stop-start/claymotion style tricks to an absolute beginner would they be less inclined to instinctively gravitate to a 2 ball shower?
