Hey dude! I myself am learning to play instruments, and let me tell you it isn't as mystical as it seems, no no!

I would love to help you out! Just pm me.

The fact that you have played by ear, and know what it means to do so, means that you are already going to be an amazing musician. Learn plenty of theory, but not so much that you become strangled by it. I'll give you some links to videos that really helped me out, but are not hard to understand.

Also I love jazz too, just check out my signature.
