Hand positioning is crucial to a good turnout. Different methods and positions work for different people but remember that your objective is to get the hair that will be added to the middle strand (or rather the strand that is going to be in the middle) from under your other hand.
Some add hair to the outside strands, but be warned that for many people, this is confusing. It resembles French braiding too closely, and those who are used to French braiding may get mixed up.
This video demo should help with hand positioning. The quality is home made, and I apologize, but it will help you get the idea.
