I have finally got a recording of me getting a sub-30 solve, there were a few hiccups, but I still managed sub-30, so I must be doing something right.

I don't know any OLL yet, that it is why it is 2 look OLL, and also, it took a bit of time for me to spot my fair CE pair and also the PLL, apart from that, what do you think?

I can do a 2 look LL. but a different way most people do it. I do corners first then egdes not OLL and PLL. I hate the PLL algs because they are so hard to learn because they require a lot of rotating the whole cube and they take are harder for me to recognize. I know 27 algs for fixing the corners. and then only 4 for the edges. Very easy to recognize quicly.

What Pll algorithm did you use?It's hard to see.

it's not about music it's about how it's solved and how fast...music takes away from the solve.

1. Practice doing cross on bottom. Allows you to look ahead earlier and take the few seconds away that it takes to turn the cube around.

2. Learn more F2l algs, a few of the ones that you are using look very long.

Other than that, good job!

i didn't exactly meaned it, but i wont argue with your gusto :) my next video will be with a behemoth mp3 :).
What is your method? You look slow at the beginning, but you've got good times 8-)

CFOP with 2-look OLL (or sometimes 1-look if I know the case). I've shaved about 5 seconds off my times since that video was taken. So I really need to make a new one (with music!)

Switching to solving the cross on the bottom was slow and tedious for me, but the payoff was significant, and it didn't require any memorization, just a little practice. I would recommend doing that as soon as possible.

I noticed that you move your whole hand to the bottom of the cube to do turns on the D face. I use my ring finger to flick the D face on the back side of the cube. This is nice because I don't have to regrip and I can flow more quickly into the next step.

howq do you do B and B' moves? I do D and D' in the same way as you

I have to change grip to do B turns, so I don't always do it the same way, depending on what turns I'm making before and after. I either twist my wrist toward me so my thumb is on the bottom face and use my ring finger (same as I just explained for D turns) or tilt the cube toward me and use my index finger.

I slightly prefer to use my index finger because I can move the B face either direction. With my ring finger I can only pull it towards me (D' with right hand, D with left hand). There may be cubers that can go both directions with their ring finger, but I haven't gotten any better at it after a year, so I don't expect to ever have that down.

Me? I try to avoid them :P but I usually use my left hand if I have to

I don't use any D turns in my solving, I am actually rotating the cube so the CE pair aligns with its correct location

I want to get my LL method laid down first, then I am going to find the best algorithms for me

Well I choose the music based on the length of the video. I usually just peruse my collection looking for something that works.

Personally, I feel that learning F2L is more important. I feel that learning F2L cut my time down more than learning LL. I'm still learning OLL's (I still have 20 more) but I have already decreased my F2L average to about 12 seconds. Since F2L requires more practice than LL (to me at least) I feel that getting started on F2L ahead of time pays off more at the end. At this stage I get many sub-20 solves since my LL only takes 5-10 seconds, depending on if its two or three look. But whatever works for you is probably your best bet!

I agree with this completely. I started keeping track of how long F2L took me when I was just under 40s average and was shocked to find that F2L was taking 30 seconds! Now my 3 look LL takes about 5-8 seconds just from practicing, but I know I could get to at least sub-25 without getting any better at LL.
