Ive been playing guitar for a while and still need alot of help, I ve been looking for a good guitar teacher that will help get me to the next level. Someone that will teach me how to really play and not just play what he shows me and than forget it a few weeks later. I guess how to really understand guitar is what I'm trying to say. I live in a southwest suburb of
Chicago and I would travel to the city or within a reasonable distance for for a quality instructor. Id appreciate any suggestions

Check the in-store event calendar's for Sam Ash (Lombard) and Guitar Center (Country Club Hills) for free guitar clinics with Eric Mantel. He is a legendary Chicago guitar virtuoso and appears there often promoting his guitar instruction service. :dude:rockin:dude

The way I always recommend is to ask around at the local shops and jams about who is the best teacher. After a while, the same few names should keep popping up. I agree that the best players are many times not the best teachers. I learned that the hard way after spending a bunch of $. Good luck

Scott talks about alot of things on his sight that I really relate to, just concerned about web lessons. Would it be as good as going somewhere local for lessons? Scott really hits on some good points. Now I'm confused and curious about the lessons

If you have someone local you can train with, do that. Face to Face is always best, unless you and the teacher don't hit if off. I'm just offering an alternative. My lessons are live. Over the years, I loose my students to travel and moving out of state. With Webcam, they continue to work with me.
