Personally, learning git in the command line was a very helpful introduction to using the command line. When I was first learning git, GitHub Desktop was still pretty new and all the tutorials I could find about git practices were just using the command line. I'm sure the landscape has changed in the past few years as GitHub Desktop keeps getting improved, but being familiar with the command line expands the amount of stuff you can do (outside of git).

Obviously don't let the fear of the command line keep you from making stuff, use whatever works for you. There's plenty of time for learning the rest later (if you want to).
