Default Telegraph Key

So CW hams, what is your favorite type of key and what do you think is best to learn initially on?

Straight
Dual (Iambic or not)
Bug

Looking for a proper something to drive a practice oscillator. I have enough trouble learning languages (I'm not the least bit musical, so Morse has been a tough nut to crack). Tapping on a momentary switch has zero tactile feedback and I think I need something to push against so more of my noodle is involved.
