I've got a Hobart 110v wire feed welder (with gas). I'm looking to weld up some exhaust pipes. I am NOT a highly skilled welder.

I'm looking for technique tips on welding mild steel pipes together. I found this YouTube vid that seems to make a lot of sense to me, at my skill level. Rather than try to lay a bead, the guy makes a series of tack welds around the tube. This strikes me as a way to really control what I'm doing.

Thoughts on this approach? Better suggestions...?
