yeah it's not easy to figure out the first time.
and no worries dude, happy to help you out. Best way to learn is by doing...as you did.
My opinion on GaGa is that yes she is talented, but because she is so strange and seems to just do as much as possibly to be weird and get attention - i hate her. Her talent is hard to notice because all I can focus on is the effort she puts into being weird. I don't find it artistic, I just find it to be attention whoring.
