About This Class

        In this course, I will teach you the next 4th set of OLL's. This is a continuation of a previously recorded course. I will be making more courses in order to cover all OLL cases so don't forget to follow me for future content. Here I will only be covering 8 OLL's out of the 57 available. Because 57 is such a daunting number, I decided to piece it up into multiple courses so those of you which are learning OLL's can digest the myriad of algorithms more easily. As long as you stick to this course, the previous ones, and the ones to follow, you will hopefully learn full OLL faster than you think and with highly efficient algorithms.

1. Introduction: What's going on, you guys? My name is Byron. And welcome to my fourth course off all else. So first off, let me give you a little bit information about myself. As I said before, my name is Byron and I've been solving room excuse for about 11 or 12 years, roughly. And within that time, I've also been a tour for higher. And I've been teaching people various types of twisty puzzles. This course is gonna be made for those that are interested in learning how to get faster at the Cube. And you don't really know old l yet or you're in the process of learning, Olo. I'm gonna be covering all of the algorithms in multiple courses. I'm going to just be giving you guys just a few per week. So that way it's gonna be easier for you to digest. And that way it's gonna be easier for you to learn. I'm gonna make sure I give you guys detailed explanations are gonna show you the algorithms as well as the finger tricks that I employed in order to get these down as fast as I can. Now, each algorithm that I show you guys are also show you not only slow, but also how to do it quickly at least as fast as I know how to. I think you guys are really gonna enjoy this course. We're gonna be diving straight into it and we're gonna just immediately start talking about these algorithms. I think you guys are really gonna have a lot of fun. So with that being said, let's get started. 2. OLL's #36 & #38: real quick before we get started. Just one that you guys know. If you're interested in picking up this puzzle this cubing, Matt, even a timer or any of these puzzles I have sitting in the background, feel free to take a look in the course description so you can pick some of the stuff up for yourself. All right, so this is gonna be the 1st 1 I'm gonna teach you guys. Now all these ones are gonna show you they have mirrors. So, like, here, this one looks like an M with two dots and one there. There is another one. I'm gonna show you next. That's gonna be mirrored. So you'll have to over here and one over here. Now, this one is a pretty finger trick friendly algorithm. It's not too bad. So I got the algorithm post on the screen. We're going to start by holding it with the two dots on our right. Just like this, we're gonna do a Are you our prime? You are. You prime our prime, you prime. And then you're gonna basically sledgehammer this after well pared down. So the our prime f r that prime and done fast it looks like this. Now we're onto the mirror of that algorithm. So same exact set up. Except the two dots are gonna be on the left hand side this time and you're gonna have the single dot on the right. So the starting position is gonna be similar to the other one where you're going to have the two dots on the left this time seeing how the two dots are on the left hand side. So you're gonna hold it just like this. Now, what we're gonna be doing is going to do the same algorithm, but we're just smearing it. That's all it is. It may seem a little weird at first because a lot of people aren't very verse that being very dextrous with their left hand because a lot of people are more right hand dominant. So there are different algorithms for this, But the ones that I've come across this seems to be the most fluid and probably the best one out there. So go ahead and try this one. See what you think. So we're gonna hold it just like this. We're gonna do a l prime, you prime l you prime help right. You. Oh, you. And then we're gonna sledgehammer this one on the left hand side doing a l F prime l prime f. And there you go. This algorithm done fast. Looks like this. 3. OLL's #39 & #40: now getting into this case, this one is definitely easy to recognize. You have your Z looking shape or whatever that is and then you're gonna have on one side, you'll see a dot and on the other side, you'll see two. Now, the way we're gonna be holding this one is gonna have with a single dot facing us now, As I said before, all these are gonna have mirrors. So the mirror that I'm gonna be talking about is basically gonna be where the dot is gonna be still in front of you But disease gonna be like that instead. So I'll show you that in just a second. This one isn't too bad, but it does take a little bit of practice. So we'll start off just like this. We're gonna be doing a l f prime l prime you prime L you f Now here you can regroup and you go like this if you want, or you could do a pointer finger push on this end for the U prime and then the l prime and I do things just a little bit differently. But because I do it slow here, I don't really know exactly how so? I'm gonna show you guys how to do this one quickly, or at least how I do it. And then right around here, you're able to I believe you can slow down the video. So that way you can see exactly everything I'm doing. So go and take a look at that. Done fast. It looks like this. Now the mirror here, we got a It was exactly like I said before the one dot that's in front of us. And then we have the two in the back. So always have the single dot facing you. And notice how? Because of the way it is this time, instead of it being like this. Now it's like this. So we're gonna use our right hand for this one. Now, we're going to start this one off by doing basically the same thing. We did the last one. We're gonna do a our price f or you our prime. You prime f prime. Now you can hear you can push this one for the U. Or if you wanted Teoh, you could come back and do that. And they're gonna do in our It's really up to you. everyone is different as faras exactly how their finger tricks go. Some people would rather do that kind of a movement for this kind of a movement or something like that. It's it's really dependent on the person. So go ahead and give it a try. Now this one done quickly will look like this. 4. OLL's #34 & #46: I hope you guys are enjoying this course so far. I do have a favor to ask you, though. You may get prompted at the top of your screen or at the top of the monitor. You may get prompted to review this course. And in the event that you do, I would really appreciate it if you took the time to give me a review. Let me know what I'm doing. Good. Let me know what I'm doing. Bad. And that way I'll know what I can do to improve my content in the future. Thanks in advance. Now, these are gonna be called the C shape police. That's what I believe that most people call these ones. I always called it bridge because it kind of looks like a bridge. But yet again, they have numbers designating them. So it's fine. Now you're gonna have two different cases. You're gonna have this one where you're gonna have a dot here a dot there and then one facing you, just like that facing you. But kind like that. And there's gonna be another one where it's just gonna be three right there. I'm gonna show you guys that one next. So this one is going to start off by holding it just like this. You're gonna have all the weird mess in the back, and it's gonna look like a Brit train, Freddie. And we're gonna start off by doing our regular trigger is gonna be a are you far prime, you prime. Now we're gonna introduce a why, Which is gonna be a cube rotation now why, If you don't already know, is basically if you have ah, Rod, that's going all the way through this Cuban. All you could do is turn it this way and you can't turn it this way. Then you're basically looking at the topside. And if you turn that clockwise meaning you're gonna turn the whole cube clockwise. That's going to be a why and turn it counterclockwise to be a y prime. So just keep that in mind Now what we're gonna do after we did our why, we're gonna do a our prime f prime, and we're gonna do a lower case. R, we're gonna do a you and you could just do this. But I found it easier and it ah, it seems to flow better for me personally. if I just bring both of them down and then back by doing that Lower case our prime and then are so yet again Try it out for yourself. See what? You think you might find something better than something I had recommended. So done fast. It looks like this. Now we have the mirror of that case, so we're gonna have the same bridge as the last one. But this time we have the full bar, as I was explaining earlier. Now, whenever you see this, me personally, I find this is one of the easiest old l algorithms that you could learn. It's very treat finger trick friendly. And I think it's only something like 78 moves like that. It's not that. So we're gonna start off by having that whole bar on our right hand side just like that. I'm going to start with a thumb on top grip, and that's gonna wait, be the way you're gonna start this out. So we're gonna end up doing a our prime. You prime our prime f are you're gonna do a pinch for the F prime. And now here you can move this pointer finger in the back to do the you for the art. Or you can push with your left pointer finger and bring it up like that. That's what I'm trying to kind of migrate towards because the other one kind of seems like it's just, ah regretting. It kind of has a pause in the middle of it, but without that, it's a little bit more fluid. If you long as you do that push now, done quickly, it looks like this. 5. OLL's #9 & #10: Now, this one is what I like to refer to as the martini glass. That's what I like to call it. Now, I don't really know what people really call this one. I've always just called a martini glass, but, you know, whatever. So let's see how this goes. Now you're gonna have a mirror. This one has to on this side one and then one, the other one will have to hear one and then one over there. So they are two completely different algorithms. Now I'm gonna show you guys how I execute this one. I recently moved over from an old algorithm over to this one, and I feel like this one is definitely better. So this is exactly how it's gonna go. We're gonna start by holding this kind of jacked up area like this. Make sure the yellow is facing on your right hand side. The first move, we're gonna do a rights point. Preach to me. It are you, our prime. You now into a our prime f are f prime, which, if you're not familiar with that set of moves, that is Ah, Sledgehammer. They were going to a Are you too? And then in our prime. Just make sure that for that you too you do the double flick, pointer and Bilfinger just like that Very finger trick Friendly is regretful Issa's Well, it's not a very bad algorithm. I do like this one a lot, and it can be done quite quickly, especially when you get to the point when you do that pitch, that's gonna be kind of a crucial moment. You come up here and you pinch lift up through the double and back down and there you now done quickly. It looks like this. Now, this one is just gonna be the mirror of the other one. And yet again, we have two dots here, one here and one right there. Now this one's gonna be a completely different algorithm. For the most part, it's going to kind of take part of a T perm. If you guys happen to know what a T perm is, it kind of follows that same thing. So the algorithm is as follows. We're gonna end up doing a are you our prime, you prime. And that's gonna be that four Move trigger. Now you're going. Teoh, insert this where they are prime f are to Now, instead of following the tea Pirmin doing au prime, you're actually going to a U? And that's how I do is I use this point figure for that. Then you're gonna do a our prime, you prime, you're gonna pinch for the f prime. So that's basically if you happen to know the T perm already, this algorithm will be very easy for you to learn. But when you start trying to learn how to go fast, you're going to realize that your muscle memory of the T perm is gonna try to take over. And it's gonna try and make you just do a t per So you're gonna have to train yourself on this one, Teoh, learn the muscle memory just to cancel into this different algorithm. Starting out with that deeper kind of algorithm. Now, this one done fast, it looks like this. All right, you guys, and that's it. That is the end of this course. Now I'm gonna be posting Maura Oil Wells as the weeks go by, so go ahead and follow me. So that way, when I post a new video, you guys will be notified. And as I said before, if you guys are interested in picking up this Mathis Cube or the time or anything that I use in this video, where that I recommend go ahead and take a look in the course descriptions. You guys confined some of that, and you can pick some of this stuff up for yourself, and you never know when any of these things are gonna go on sale. So go ahead and keep checking back, and you might find something that you like now. That being said, it's been awesome. Making this course. It's been a ton of fun. I hope I was able to help you guys out. Please review if you can, and I'll see you guys next week.
