Hey Kris, welcome to the BEST GD site on the planet!  You'll have a lot of fun here and, as you've already noticed, more resources than you can shake a snake at!

In addition to the incredible resources on FM, between Pierre & all the really knowledgeable folks on the forum,,,, I personally would suggest one more resource; The Mark O'Connor lesson books.  They are such a great progression; they start off very easy with the fundamentals and progress really well, with great instruction; btw, I have no affiliation whatsoever with this product, I just use them and I like them a lot.

Best of luck in your journey; we are all here to help to whatever extent we can!
