Thanks @Luke and thanks to everyone who's liking and commenting. I'm really happy this FA has worked out so well and hope it helps as many people as possible.
For everyone who's still new (like me), don't be afraid of testing more things, because then you'll have results to analyse and opportunities to apply what you learn. I've made heaps of mistakes, but I didn't know what I was doing was a mistake until I did it and then analysed what I did. I think that's really the only way to learn this game (or at least generate those 'lightbulb' moments that result in real progress).
