I taught myself to row when I was a kid, fishing in a 10 foot Sears johnboat.
A johnboat
Being that I was a weak kid and a johnboat glides through the water much like parachute, efficiency was at a premium! Eventually I learned to row pretty well. Try trolling sometime in a rowboat! requires a fast recovery, slow pull - the opposite of what Matt described.

On the few occasions I've used a C2, I find that my rowing technique is much like my pulling technique for the Olympic lifts - all leg and back on the pull with straight arms until the recovery. I tend to wack myself in the sternum on the recovery.

Lincoln,
I am much the same fix. Pull, smack, repeat.

I gave the incline a shot, and the decline as well. Ouch. My hammys were killing me for days. Elevating the back was not bad, but elevating the front was torture.
