Hey, Talo, I'd recommend you bring your shoulders in to a more "neutral" angle. To around 30 degrees in. That is less stressful to the shoulder and stronger, also. That's sort of one of the benefits to db's in itself. Also the ability to take a more neutral grip.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Thanks for the tip E , this is why I will be putting up more vids so that you guys can give me pointers.

I'm trying to picture this in my head .So when I'm sitting holding the DB's up and everything is parallel.Should I move everything (shoulders ,arms) holding the db's forward ? or up ? 30 deg.

Just having a hard time picturing .

Just think about having your elbows in round about 30 degrees. So I guess if you considered where your elbows are now 0 degrees... See if I can get a vid of someone doing that. It's called the "scapular plane".

This is actually, given a choice, the way many would naturally place the dumbells. You can think about it in day to day function. If you were going to put a heavy box up on an overhead shelf, would you bring your arms out to to the side..90 degrees?

No I wouldn't . I see what your saying now. Next time I do them I will tape it to see if it's ok.
