Quality wire, and check out youtube for great videos for beginners, theres tons.

Take your time, learn how to adjust the settings. The more wire you burn the better you get.

I think as far as modern day mig welding goes you can get the hang of it pretty quick. The cleaner the stuff is the better. But also as far as just burning some stuff together, sometimes it might look a little rough and still hold pretty good. Practice on all your "non critical" stuff first.

Find scrap and just weld it together.
