I have been searching, but I can’t really find any high quality ones that go from A to Z.
What have you found that is the best?
I don’t think there are any tutorials, but from what I’ve learned… it’s best to take the Sample Child Theme and work from there. If you start from scratch – fully from scratch… you will be scratching your head until your hair falls out. Better to select the Sample that has the biggest chunk of the job done for you – then add what you want and subtract what you don’t want.
I was going to use the Sample Child theme, but there still isnt much on how to add homepage widgets etc etc.
I love Genesis, but man the instructions are weak.
A lot of things are piece meal and scattered all over. But how I learned… I have the PRO Plus Pack. If I want to have widgets on the home that look a particular way – I look at the other themes in the packages to see if one has it. If it does I just go and copy/paste the code out of one theme, along with the corresponding CSS and then hack that.

Again, what you sent is super basic stuff. That is not what I am asking.
As for 100’s of blogs showing how to do what I am asking, kindly send me a link because I sure haven’t found a good one.
Also, I do have extender. It makes it life much easier, but I would like to be to able to do it without extender — hence the reason for my post.
