My suggestion would be to learn Tig (or Oxy/Ac) also-I enrolled in a local Community College (where they only offered Stick, Mig or Oxy/Ac) and took the Oxy/Ac course, which translated pretty well for Tig (obviously, with both you have to learn hand/eye coordination, as well as Puddle/Filler control)-

Learning to Tig has been a process for me, and I'm still learning (Alum, Stainless, etc.)-with Mig, heck I just bought the Machine, plugged it in, bought some Gas, watched some videos (and got some pointers), and by the end of the first Hour I was making nice Welds-maybe it's just me, but Mig Welding came a lot easier for me to learn-Tig, not so much-
