Start there. Edit those files to do whatever you like.
See the tutorials here:
It would be helpful to know what exactly you are trying to do as well. ;) Do you want change the footer? Then look at the footer tutes. Do you want o do things to the header? Then you look at the ones we have for modifying the header.
Creating your own child theme follows the same process as editing an existing theme to do what you like.
I think the biggest thing for me right now is if someone could show me how to use regular css instead of LESS for Bones I would be so happy. Bones seems like a great place to start espically since the functions.php file is very well documented.
When I look at the CSS file in bones it says you can switch back to using regular CSS but doesnt say how to do so, would you have any idea how I can do that?
Bones can be found here - http://themble.com/genesis/bones/
Once its installed, I have no idea what css file to edit to make changes
Would you happen to know how I could use regular css for bones instead of using LESS? The process of writing and uploading changes is confusing me so much if I use LESS.
