NB You'll find she's demonstrating on a Traddy which should be extra helpful for you.
I have been spinning for several years. I agree with koffipot and would not recommend a beginner to spin in the grease. Beginners should start with basic techniques and very simple and easy fibers. One technique that I have seen for brand new spinners with a new wheel is to take a commercial spun yarn and spin with it. It gives the user time to practice and coordinate hands and feet.

Thanks, Wildnwooly. Never heard that one and absolutely willing to give commercial yarn a try. I definitely need more practice in getting feet and hands coordinated. Fortunately, two of my sibs are knitters so I have commercial yarn at hand.
Koffipot, yes, the flickr photo shows that Romney yarn. I've a long way to go to match your beautiful hand spun!
