@Brandon_Sandstrom posts ATC Tutorial Guide and Pilot Tutorial Guide
@NEO post ATC Tutorial (T&G)

Make sure to check out the Infinite Flight Youtube channel as well where Mark, Tyler and FDS did a terrific job with each of the videos as it helped me tremendously in learning the basics.

Hope this helps!

Should this be in the #live:atc category or is it fine where it is?

That is where I originally had it, one of the mods I think moved it.
