I just learned this trick about 2 days ago, and I used to have the same problem as you. I felt uncomfortable bringing the yoyo over my thumb. So, what I decided to do was to swap in the thumb for everything the pointer finger does(in Andre’s version). And Therefore, swap the pointer in for whatever the thumb does in Andre’s version. This makes it so you start out going into a braintwister mount with your thumb, instead of pointer finger, as you would usually do. This makes it so the yoyo will come over your pointer finger in your trouble spot. (Which makes it more comfortable for me) Also, this means that when you go to dismount at the end, before you go back into a braintwister mount to repear, the yoyo comes over your thumb. To sum it all up, substitute your thumb in for what your pointer finger wyould do according to Andre’s video. Hope this helps!
