    I've actually heard that Ray Flacke teaches lessons, I think he's located in Nashville or somewhere close to it. He's an awesome player, check out some of his instructional dvd's.

    Jeeez, You should be able to get a great one by whispering that you need one in any crowded place.
    Nashville? I taught there a few years ago... I think kids are born playing guitar there.

    John Pell...

    he's the head of Belmont University's guitar dept. He's a great guy, nice, can be a little tough as a teacher but he works hard to get the best out of you. Has a ton of information!

    Hehe, george Gruhn comes into the vet clinic i work at a couple of times a month, usually. I cant believe i havent thought to ask him.

    Guitarguy, does John pell do private lessons or does he strictly teach through the university?

    I'm pretty sure he teaches outside of the school.
