I just did some research on the net, then bought a board. First thing I did was to make an interface box for it that made it easier to plug a guitar in and other things. Basically, I made this- http://www.beavisaudio.com/bboard/
He was selling those at some point and no longer does, but he put the plans up so anybody could make one. There is also a lot of useful breadboarding info on his site that I read. My first things were simple Fuzz Face circuits and I changed components around to change the tone to better fit my rig, then I moved onto more complicated things after I learned the basics. I mostly etched boards but I think perf is easier as etching is such a nasty process, but if it were me, I would try both. I highly recommend this book also- http://www.smallbearelec.com/servlet/Detail?no=679
