the Passing DataBase

Take the 6-count popcorn (regular), and apply theses modifications :
- add a self (we now have an ambidextrous pattern)
- make the passes more "floaty" (4,5p)
- convince your partner that it's not going to work at all until one of you makes diagonal passes.

If we break it down, we have:
- triple-self (or double-double; see notes on the 6-count popcorn "twin towers" variation)
- pass as a floaty double (tramline for you, diagonal for your partner)
- 4 normal selfs
- ... (same thing on the other side of the pattern)


Try the same variations as in the 6-count. You can choose when to throw the 441 or the 531 because of the 4 selfs that you have to play with. Or you can do any 3 club siteswap of length 4, like the superfunky 5340. If you juggle it continously, add another club and make the pass a floaty single, you have the 8 clubs 7-count popcorn of Jon and Dani.

By replacing the pass on the double by a right self double (a normal 4), followed by a floaty single pass (diagonal if you were throwing tramline doubles and vice-versa), we obtain a fantastic rhythm (10-6-6-6-8-6-7 in the 4 hand siteswap notation, each juggler does 10-6-8-7-6-6-6). It's easier if you can both juggle 534 solo, because what you're doing here is a 534 followed by a floaty single pass then 3 normal selfs before starting again on the other side.

For a spicier variation even, you can try any of the 6-count variations since you still have 3 selfs left to play with. Here's the diagram of J1 juggling a popcorn and 531 (10-6-8-7-10-6-2) while J2 does the Twin Towers with a 441 (8-8-8-7-8-8-2). Good luck...
