A nice MIG weld should sound like a machine gun - a constant fast zap- zap- zap. If you find the wire feed is pushing your head away from the work you are probably feeding too fast. If you get intermittent starts and flashes, too slow. If you blow holes - too much current. If you get lumpy , non continuous, try more current - too much heat dissipation at the weld site.
Somewhere to start from anyway - I've been going thru the MIG learning curve for a few months too - but when going well, beats the pants off arc.
