Thanks guys. This is just the description I was looking for. From the video it looks like he is using both hands to guide the line around the drum. I seem to remember an ASA instructor freaking out when my wife used both hands in manner similar to this. Other videos I have seen have the right hand lightly holding the line about 2 feet from the winch, and the left hand guiding the line around the drum. In a different J school video, it looked like they were instructing the students to rest the line in a ring formed by the thumb and first finger as it guides the line around the drum. That is what was confusing me.
