How can I get started in animations?

I have read the documents on animation blueprints and I am having trouble converting that to my specific need.

Right now I have a vehicle with 5 bones in the skeleton. (4 Wheels and A turret).

For now wheel rotation is not that much of a requirement, but the turret is where I am stumped. I have the controls set up for the right stick to control the turret but cannot figure out how to animate it and then hook it up to the control.

What documents or support will help get me on the right track?

The turret is not controlled by the Animation blueprint. If you want a turret (like on a panzer) then i would attach it to the Body. And in the Player blueprint i would set the Rotation from the turret.
