Fundamental Skills of Heel-and-Toe

This is a more complete and revised version of a shorter demonstration video I made on the heel-and-toe technique back in May.

The exercise numbers (#1-11) reference the written version of the 20-exercise guide by Garage Woolery. The remaining 9 exercises are advanced versions of the first 11.
