How to do Jacobs Ladder, Step by Step, with string


Okay, we’re gonna learn how to do Jacob’s
Ladder The first thing you do is begin with a
string that’s the right length, and depending on how tall you are, it’ll
matter how long your string is. A good guide is to take the string and wrap
around from your elbow to your hand about two-and-a-half times. Take that and tie the ends together and trim off the ends and you should have a nice circle. Start with the string across both of your palms in the open position over your thumb and pinky. Use your pointer finger to pick up the
string from each of your palms This position is called open A. next drop the thumb strings. Reach underneath with your thumbs and
you’re gonna pick up the last string with your thumbs. Just the last string Now with both of your thumbs, reach
over the first string and pick up the second string. Then drop the pinky strings It should look like that. With your pinky fingers reach over
the last string and pick up the very next string Now drop the thumb some strings. Now you have what’s called cat’s whiskers. Keep going, you’ll get there. With your thumbs, go over
over the first two strains of the cactus the first two strings and pickup the third one. Try not to pull too tight. You want a little
tension but not too tight. The next step is tricky. Be sure to watch
carefully. Using your right hand lift the string
from the outside of your left hand pointer finger and
place it over the left thumb Now you’ve got two strings over your thumb. Take the bottom string and lift it forward over your thumb. Now repeat that on your right hand Take the string from your forefinger put
it over your thumb Take the bottom string the other way over the thumb. You should now have one string over your thumb. Very carefully you’ll notice you have
made two triangles right here next to your thumbs. This is the part where most people mess-up. The string that I’m touching right now
is the one that’s going to be on my pointer finger in a minute Very carefully I’m going to drop my pinkies turn my hands to face away from me while letting the string that’s on the
back of my pointers slide off. This will be the new string on my pointers. I’m going to do this very slowly. Drop the pinky and at the same time turn your hands away letting that outer
string slip off And there you have Jacob’s ladder! When undoing Jacob’s ladder it’s easy to get
the string tangled The easiest way to undo this it’s too lay it down take the two top and bottom strings and pull them apart and you’ll have the loop
back and that’s how you make Jacob’s ladder! If you practice you’ll be able to do it
pretty quickly Drop the thumb pick up the last one Go over the first pick up the next drop the pinky go over the last and pick up the next drop the thumb go over two make the triangle Put this in here, drop the pinkeys. Let
that slide off of your pointer and there you have it. Jacob’s Ladder!
