Forming Danish words properly

Does anyone know of a good website, program, book, etc that can help me with proper formations of certain sounds? I'm mimicking what I'm hearing, but I want to also be sure I'm actually forming my mouth the correct way to make those sounds as I'm sure there are subtle (or not so subtle) differences in how it sounds, especially to a native speaker.

There are certain things like the soft Ds that throw me and I'm just finding it so hard to make the correct sound. Words like brød and skildpadde are some example of words I'm struggling with.

I feel like all I need is a good explanation on how to form those sounds and it will finally click into place. I'm really excited to be learning this language! DuoLingo rocks!

The following youtube channels might help:

David Jørgensen

Dansk Udtale

The first has a playlist on udtale using material from both and elsewhere.

But these are just what I happen to have, I am sure there are more useful resources...

this might help you with the soft Ds!

"Brød" is really difficult for me because of the combination of the r and ø. I still haven't gotten the sound quite right.
