My GF loves to do this. I just put her hand on the shift knob and put my hand over hers. I told her she is going to have to do the driving if we ever travel to England and rent a car with a manual transmission. She's got a lot of experience in left-hand-shifing.

I won't argue that it wouldn't be easier to do the above with an automatic. And a short-shifter or short shift knob is a must!
