If you are on a mac and want a full featured gui, I recommend Source Tree.
It seems to have the best usability and features.

makes Git shine, apart from the fact that it is distributed.

Check out the beautiful "file status lifecycle" diagram at:

bunch of stuff and conveniences) and you will start feeling comfy with Git
in no time.
