what was it like studying with frapy? in the book you mention that you practiced for 8 hours a day. did you guys jam for 8 hours a day, or did you sit with a metronome? do most of the gypsies "practice" rigorously (i.e. 8 hours alone with a metronome, slowly at first), or do they learn from just jamming constantly? did you have to do any gypsy-picking 'pre-work' before frapy, or did you go as a novice gypsy-jazzer?
