I would highly recommend looking for YouTube tutorials on how to take off and land "aircraft with conventional landing gear"/taildraggers.

You will need to add power slowly on takeoff. Also, a separate rudder control (either a joystick twist axis or pedals) will help immensely, as you will have to do a lot of corrections on the takeoff/landing roll.
