I've been working through the Gypsy picking and parts of the Gypsy Rhythm books for awhile now, while at the same time also basically learning guitar as well. So I feel like while I've been getting better at the mechanics, I'm still at a loss when it comes to figuring out how to actually get ideas from my head to the guitar. Basically, what should I play over these chords that sounds good, or how I should put together a progression of chords that sounds good.
I'm thinking that lessons would be the best way to help me at this point, so first, I wondered if there were any GJ teachers in the DC/Baltimore area that someone could recommend?
Second, any suggestions for things to practice that would help? I'm working on learning some songs and stuff, but anything else? Maybe getting some rhythm tracks and trying to apply some picking patterns over them to get an idea of how it fits together?
I know this is a pretty vague question, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Thanks
