I too am a relative newcomer to tube amps, and had the same problem figuring out where to start. Unfortunately, I didn't discover Ampage so quickly in my quest for tone bliss. If you want to learn all the hardcore theory and mathematics behind it, I would recommend "Valve Amplifiers" by Morgan Jones - keep in mind that Morgan is building a hifi amp with extremely low distortion, which is probably not exactly what you are going for in a guitar amp, but he does give you a great base knowledge of how tubes work.
