I think this video is very good. It goes step by step, and it goes slowly, which is good. It shows how you should position your hands to where you can play the guitar properly and better. Of course, you want to have your dominant hand on the strings. While your other hand, whichever one is not dominant, should be on the top strings and must be lowered. Overall, I think this video is really useful. You should try it.
