With the normal gunslinger you try to move the ken around the tama and not move the tama that much (disgarding the fact that it rotates). To do so you push up so you can go around the tama while it still has upwards momentum.

To recreate this with the sideslinger I still use the upwards motion but also move from lower left to upper right whilst I'm turning the ken around the tama.
(I'm left-handed so for right-handed play you'll need to go from right to left...)

It's very important to also have that upwards motion to give you the time to do the slinger-move properly.. So in short.... knees :-)

Thanks, Dimensions! Yeah, what Hans said. But I also think of the horizontal version as having a longer exit. So not just a spiral, but more of a swoop-loop-swoop kind of thing. Viewed from above, the index finger movement would be something like....
