Course Description

The Floating Bill by Michael Ammar

Few effects get a reaction better than The Floating Bill. When the Tonight Show called the first time, I knew without a doubt, I was going to float that bill for Johnny Carson. 

This instructional is from my 1991 video: "Classic Renditions 1, The Floating Bill." It covers all the information about the two types of thread (elastic and non-elastic); how to hook up; the routine (I walk you through the entire performance on The Tonight Show); and a Super Practice Session - a new feature when this series came out. 

From "Classic Renditions Volume 1" DVD.
