Learning gypsy violin?

Hi, just want to ask if learning the violin is really that difficult? I've been playing gypsy guitar for a couple of years now, and have been playing small gigs every now and then. I've managed to recruit other musicians to the gypsy style, but we are having difficulty finding a violinist and bassist. That said, I decided to learn to play violin, however, I don't know how to read music. Will that be a problem? Is there a 'gypsy approach' to learning violin as it is with the guitar? Basically, learning arpeggios, licks etc? I don't plan to be paganini-esque, just play melodies and maybe simple improv. Just to give our group a different tone when playing. As it stands, we are 3 guitarists and a trombone player :D
