I'm perfectly OK with emacs if I knew anything about it.  :)  I know it's a little OT to ask, but if anyone knows of a slow, to-the-point tutorial for emacs that will cover getting me cool with the keyboard shortcuts, I'm all ears.  org-mode looks awesome, but those keyboard shortcuts are *damn* hard to learn.


Most of basic orgmode is available through the menus (org and tbl are the relevant ones)
The ones that have a keyboard shortcut have that listed in the menu when and if you feel like learning it.
Yes the builtin tutorial is definitely perverse -- recommending Ctrl-P and Ctrl-N over up and down arrows!! 

That's much faster for me than leaving touch typing position, but anyway. 

I'd actually recommend the built-in tutorial. It sounds pretty much like what Josh was asking for. 

Just read the emacs startup screen and start from there. 

I asked about a good menu-based tutorial on the emacs mailing list.
So far, as far as I can see theres none.

But the suggestion I got is to use the refcards more.

Specifically I recommend the basic emacs card: refcard.pdf and then the orgcard.pdf
