i want to start with riding flatland

ok as most of you know i got a new bike. ive gone from riding around, to where i want to learn tricks.

i want to learn some simple flatland tricks. but first i think i should learn how to bunny hop, and barspin. i was at bmxtrix.com, but it didnt help that much because all the videos were skilled riders. doing high bunny hops. whats an easy way to learn to barspin? i want to learn flatland first, then street, then vert.

An easy way to do barspins?Hmmmmm.....I started out doing this.......Go at a medium to slow pace on your pedals, then put your right foot on the right back peg, next make sure your knees lock into the seat to hold you up. Pull up the handlebars and practice that. After that you pull up (using your knees against the seat to hold you up) spin the bars with either your left or right hand, which ever feel better for you. Im sorry if thats hard to understand, but read it and you might get it. Another way to do a barspin is put both feet on the back pegs (left foot on back left peg and right foot on back right peg) then grab the seat with the hand you dont feel confortable spinning the bars with and pull up and spin the bars. Practice makes perfect. To do a bunnyhop was always hard to explain for me. Pull up your handlebars (off the ground of course) and DONT push all of the weight on your pedals. Take some weight off but dont remove your feet from the pedals and you should lift off the ground. Sorry if that was hard to understand but its how I would explain it.
