Learning new openings


I have finally arrived at a place where I think that I need to learn openings slightly more completely.

I am looking for advice as to best learn an opening using the learning resources at Chess.com.

I am thinking something like.

Memorize basic main lines, then watch the online videos and articles associated with the opening. I have attempted to use chess mentor but for openings it is tough when you have no basic background on the opening first.

Any further ideas would be awsome.


Have you tried the game explorer (master games)?
