I'm having a lot of issues with this software. I still use my old final cut 7 yet I wanted to learn and work with Vegas as well. I just can't seem to get things to do what I want... need suggestions on the best tutorial videos out there.
You are not very specific on what is not working for you.
As a Pro level Vegas editor, I find it hard to switch to another application because I tend to apply vegas logic process to the other application. You need to let go of how you do things in other apps and learn the logic behind how that app does things. I find Blender extremely hard to learn, because those devs are doing everything non standard just to be different or legally different.
I would start here.

The 1st 2 videos seem to be pretty well done, and show how the basics work.
