ADXL 345 acc. And LED's

I have an arduino nanov3 + accelerator ADXL 345 and i have 12 LED's in a circle. I want the LED's to light up according the axle im tipping it towards. I've gotten stuck on the programming for it, and i would like to have some tips/help on how i should continue.

When in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

When that doesn't work, post the code you have, and explain what it actually does, and how that differs from what you want.

Keep in mind that an accelerometer does NOT measure angles. It is up to you to convert the acceleration data (rate of change of velocity) to angle.
