Do you already play a Low-D?, if so then this is easy to learn.   All of the open holes are just like a Low-D, the bottom hole has a key so that we can make a very large 'E' hole for a more powerful low end.  So you can play this like a Low-D with ornamentation as usual, except for the bottom tonehole.  Once you get used to it, you can do some interesting ornaments with keys as well.
