I should apologise for posting the above, I'm sorry I couldnt help it. There are some good videos out there, after a quick search I found this which seems quite sensible.

I like real Chris baca on YouTube. he has multiple videos covering the basics. But his enthusiasm may not be to everyone's taste.

I'll second(/third?) Chris Baca's videos. Scott Rao's v60 video is worth watching. Even if you don't end up using his technique, he talks about why his technique is so which helps with undersanding pourover a bit better.

When you’re learning how to pour it can be so frustrating using loads of milk, prepping loads of shots and then making a mess over and over. Until you’ve got control of some kind of pouring technique you can’t expect to produce anything, not even a simple heart. 

So, if this is what’s happening . . .

 

Practicing with just water is a really good way to gain some control and muscle memory. Try doing this for a few times, a few times a day. Get someone to video you doing it so you can see where you are going wrong - post it on here for some help if you want :)

This vid explains in more detail what happens when you steam milk plus some helpful techniques. Well worth watching.

Thank you @Snakehips for aiming me in the direction - it made excellent viewing while eating our tea!
