Does anyone know of any good resources I could use to learn how to properly learn how to program and create patches for synths?

I am using Absynth and find it entirely overwhelming...I have youtubed vids for instruction but they are still way too advanced for me as I know nothing about waveforms, oscillators, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's probably best to learn the terms first, then come back to the tutorials. The Wikipedia article on subtractive synthesis is a good starting point; if you don't know what a term means, it probably has its own article you can read, then come back.
