Hello everyone. I am new to the guitar and have just discovered gypsy jazz. I have spent the past few weeks reading the previous posts and found the answers to many of my questions. There have been some great discussions and everyone seems eager to share their experience and knowledge!
I would love to learn gypsy jazz guitar. I have set up lessons with a teacher who has classical/jazz experience and my first lesson is tonight. Even if he does not have too much knowledge of gypsy jazz, I know I can work through the basics with him. I would love to focus on gypsy jazz, but I don't know if that would be too much at this time and I should lay the foundations and then focus on gypsy jazz style down the road. Where should I begin? Is starting to learn the guitar and focusing on gypsy rhythm too overwhelming for a true beginner?
Any guidance and words of wisdom from the members here would be greatly appreciated.
