Google and you'll find whole sites dedicated to the art.
My first bit of advice is to keep the blades canted slightly forward at the top - like you'd bite into the water a bit. This increases the power of the stroke and eliminates the wobble. Your cadance will be higher than with a Euro as well. Wear your spray skirt as there are no drip rings and your ride will be a little wetter than you're probably used to.
Give it time - it's worth it.
