Get the tone
As this style is predominantly acoustic, the best thing to maximise tone and projection is to sort your picking out. Use the heaviest pick you can manage and play each new string with a down stroke. The gypsy style uses a relaxed wrist posture; pick through each string, so a note on the second string ends with the pick resting on the first, rather like a classical guitar rest stroke. Use gravity and the weight of the hand rather than brute force, as this will create tension in the wrist, slow you down and produce a sound that is tight and forced, rather than fluid and smooth.
