C4dcafe tutorial guide

If you didn't know... I learned Cinema 4d by following the tutorials at c4dcafe.com

I owe my C4d skills to 3dkiwi! ^ ^ Thats the guy who makes the tuts... A lot of people ask me how to learn cinema4d and I say "go to c4dcafe and watch the tutorials" then I get asked "which ones?" I realize I've been on that site since it started so there weren't many tuts back then... and now there's like... a hundred...

So this is the order I remember watching the tutorials... so if your an absolute beginner you might want to try them in this order...
