To feel comfortable with Git, make this book your bible:


 <http://progit.org/book/>Chapter 2 starts getting you used to your everyday

<http://progit.org/book/ch2-2.html>Read (and re-read, I often forget a whole
bunch of stuff and conveniences) and you will start feeling comfy with Git
in no time.
