4-handed Siteswaps

Passing: If you stay inside the vanilla restric­tion, you´ll get 4 handed siteswaps with hands throw­ing altern­ately. This means, a 4 handed 'glob­al' siteswap sequence gives you the throws for right hand jug­gler 1, right hand jug­gler 2, left hand jug­gler 1, left hand jug­gler 2 and again. So, jug­gler 2 starts half a beat after jug­gler 1 and they nev­er …
