Default Beginner's mead

Well, I found an apiary near me with good priced gallons. So, I'm planning on starting a mead. I've read all sorts of recipes and I just don't know where a good place to start is. What would you guys say is a great recipe to begin with. I'm thinking something more basic to educate me on the taste of the honey as opposed to melomels or such. I'm thinking about doing a couple 1 gallon batches with different recipes to compare. Any advice is appreciated.

I made a version of the Barkshack Ginger Mead in Papazian's book that is EXCELLENT!
