Compiling kernel with git

I've built custom kernels before, but I've never used git. I'm having a 
problem with the sound on my system, and an alsa developer is offering me a 
git kernel tree that he thinks will fix my problem.

My problem is that - with tool - I'm not sure how to proceed. I see the 
instructions for building from git, but what exactly do I retrieve before I 
do the configuration and build. I'm going to quote the message he sent me 
below. If you can at least get me started, I can go from there. It's 
unfamiliarity with this tool that has me confused.

Thanks in advance
Here's his message to me:
