This is all really good advise. Not much I can add. I can only think of one thing:
Just to be clear, flopping does NOT drop all aggro. It mearly prevents mobs from attacking you, so they start to attack others. If you pop right back up before anyone has generated more aggro than you have, they will run right back over to you. (I learned this the hard way and had to be educated by another minstrel.)

Good luck and have fun out there!
