I have been working on the first few chapters of L'Esprit Manouche but I'm feeling kind of stuck. I've only been playing guitar for a bit over a year.
I was thinking of getting a book that deals more with the rhythm guitar part before i really get into the soloing part that l'espirit seems to deal with.
I've been weighing my odds with john fjorgenson's book, dennis chang's dvd, and the horowitz books gypsy picking and rhythm.
Should I stick it out with l'espirit for a while or if i had to get another book, which should i get?
Keep in mind I don't have much jazz experience, and play songs mostly made up of chords at this point.
