Welcome! Blender is an awesome program once you get used to its quirky interface, which doesn't always quite do what you think it's going to at first.

My hints:

The Noob-to-pro guide is really useful early on, but once you get further in I'd start using the manual instead.

Rigging: when you get there, "create groups from bone heat" is a great way to *start* a rig's connection to the mesh, but you should do a little weight painting to retouch.

Lighting: No matter how important you might already think lighting is, it's MORE important than that. :3
Are the greybeard video tutorials still available out there..? those are what helped the most with settling in to the interface and getting the basics.

I did download them, havent had a chance to watch them yet though :)
thanks for those links :)
Thanks for posting these, I've added them to the bio page for easy access.
