This summer, I attended "Django in June", where I had the chance to take four or five lessons with Michael Horowitz (who gave the best handouts, BTW, of all the teachers there, thanks, Michael!)
Before I left Northampton MA, I purchased a Wegen pick and Michael's excellent book "Gypsy Picking", and I've been working with those two things like a sonofbitch ever since.
In the past three months, I feel that I've made fairly good progress in the GJ style, and most of my musical buddies have commented that I'm sounding way better.
My question: Since I haven't yet fully mastered all the techniques in "Gypsy Picking", is it too soon to buy and start working on "Gypsy Fire"?
Or am I better off waiting until I can do all the exercises in "Gypsy Picking" up to speed first?
My religion is, I worship Lang the Father, Django the Son, and Oscar the Holy Ghost...
While converts are always welcome, I get to be the Pope because I thought of this religion before you did...
