Are there any good resources that anyone can suggest. I rate myself 3 out of 10 when it comes to using editors like vim

    Welcome to Emacs.SE! Please do a web search for "emacs tutorial" and you will come across a number of useful resources. This forum is designed for discrete questions rather than open-ended ones. – Dan Nov 14 '19 at 16:21
  • The answer is "yes". You may want to rephrase it in order to clarify if you want a different answer. – Stefan Nov 14 '19 at 23:10

I write up something like the canonical answer.

If you have Emacs with graphical environment such as X11 or Windows just start Emacs and open the menu item HelpEmacs Tutorial with the help of your pointing device such as mouse or touchpad.

If you only have the command line version of emacs start emacs with the following command line:

emacs -f help-with-tutorial

Then fight your way through the tutorial.
