Pay close attention to the video.
Hold the knife LIGHTLY. Use light strokes. Do NOT press down hard with the stone. Be patient and let the stone do the work. Start slowly.
DO NOT preceed to a finer stone until you have raised a burr AND removed it. This is critical.
Once you get the hang of it and your knives become truly sharp you'll wonder where you've been all these years.
Too bad you booted Chico. I've personally watched him work his EdgePro Pro model and there is none better anywhere. He would have been full of tips and techniques.
