Default Blown Beads at the end of a hollow tube

I am looking for a tutorial on how to blow beads at the end of a hollow tube. I have watched David P's when he was at Corning but it doesn't give you a close up of taking the bead off or how he makes the neck. I heard there is another way where you just heat up the end of the pipe and pull the bead off but not sure how that is done. Can anyone help with this?
I have been trying to figure this out for weeks and ready to pull my hair out!
Thank you.

Boro is a whole different thing than blowing 104 on a blowpipe.
I have found a tutorial, but have taken a class with Aja Vaz, who learned from Davide They use a Carlo Dona blowpipe a diamond shears. It's HARD to do!

I found this video quite useful. Instead of using the diamond shears, heat the mandrel to red hot while pulling on the bead with your hot fingers (just the mandrel, not the bead) . Be sure you have built the bead right on the end of your mandrel. The hole will not really be much worse than the hole in this video was.
You can start with a single color. I am hoping to make a wee video of myself doing this and writing up a bit on my blog in the next couple of days since there is not much out there. I am still just learning, but have the basics kind of down.
Well, I actually need to wait a little bit on this. I need to get the holes down a little better!
