learning to weld, any tips or advice

My dad has a millermatic 175 I believe. It has gas with it. I have never welded before. I tried laying down a bead on some scrap angle iron. At first I layed down a decent bead but then I messed with the settings and couldn't get a real good bead. Does anyone have any advice or tips for a beginner welder. The funny thing is my dad can do great work with a 39 years old buzzbox that won't even adjust anymore but can't do much with the new miller
