You mention that your main interest is jazz. This forum is dedicated to classical guitar, but a number of players and teachers share your interest and are cross trained to some degree.
Use of the forum's internal search function will point you in the direction of some jazz oriented discussions and materials. Enter the search term <<jazz guitar>> and go from there.
If you are just getting started, you might look into having a lesson with a teacher in your area. They will get you started in the right direction as far as technique goes and it is worth the investment. If you can't find a teacher, there are Online Lessons
here at Delcamp.
