I've recently launched a video series on how to solve the Rubik's Cube on my YouTube channel.

One thing you really need to learn if you want to solve the Rubik's Cube is the notations that are used when describing a series of moves you need to memorize. This can look like gobbledegook if you're unfamiliar with what the notation means.
