The latigo is wrapped (goes through the ring of the cinch and the ring on the saddle) usually 4-5 times depending on his big the horse's barrel is or how long the cinch is.. or whatever. Then you tie it like a 4
Up.. around to the left, cross in front, around to the right and down through your "rabbit hole" that you made.
I find English girths are hard to tighten whereas Western uses sort of the same technique as a pulley or ratchet..
You'll get it OP! Just keep on practicing. Make comparisons to techniques like making a 4 or a triangle and going through to tie it off or think of a castle and how to close the gate you had to reach up at the top of the rope and pull it down and gradually it'd close (to tighten the latigo.) Same with blinds..
You know? Make comparisons to remember how to do it. Last time I was in a western was.. phew 2002??
