Video Transcription

It's 12 o'clock. One, two, three o'clock. 12 o'clock, 11, 10, nine. So here we go. Let's go to nine o'clock. And how about to 10? What about to three o'clock? Back to 12. What about to two? What about to 10? What about to three?

What we're doing is creating this gesture. We're doing it from the elbow. We're not turning our body around any way like that. No, just from here. This is to get to the string. There are two ways, one is laterally and the other is this way.
