Yo-yo Tricks, 1976 by Professor Gum published on 2013/03/17 21:18:52 +0000 Fingerstyle guitar solo. In 1976, I did own several yo-yos, including one that would light up when it spun, if it had batteries in it... which it never did. Which is probably why I turned out like this. As for tricks, I could do 'walk the dog'... well, in fairness, I could do the first half of 'walk the dog', where the yo-yo goes down and just spins, down at the end of the string. The second half of the trick, where it comes back up again, I never quite mastered. Also, not incidentally, thanks and greetings to the folks who've followed me recently.
