Back wrapping is a skill, and like any skill it takes a lot of practice.
The frist carry I learned was a Ruck Tied Tibetan, I also think SHBC http://www.thebabywearer.com/forum/showthread.php?484810-COTW-Week-12-Mixed-Carries-JBC-GBC-SHBC is a nice one to learn becaus ethe first thing you do is secure baby to your back, tie, and then work on spreading your passes.
I practiced over the bed, with DH spotting me, and in front of a mirror a lot before I really got the hang of it.
Personally, I double hammock a lot now but I think it's a conplicated carry to learn if you aren't used to back wrapping.
ETA: forgot to ask, what size is your wrap, that can really influence how appropriate a carry is.
ETA Again: I see you are in Chicagoland, there are lots of bwing groups and meetings here. I can help you find one if you aer interested.
