I've played guitar for a few years and I'm decent but nothing exceptional. I was reading an article saying that taking lessons was a good way to improve, and I've been looking but there are not many teachers available in my area. I found some online lessons, the one main one was by Tom Hess. Are online lessons/ lessons at all a valid way to learn? What is good on the internet?

Private lessons will definetly help you improve, if you find a good teacher that is. As for online lessons, just google whatever you are wanting to learn, or go to youtube. There are tons of free lessons out there.

Tons of free lessons but lots of garbage out there.

I'll second the recommendation for www.justinguitar.com. He does an excellent job of explaining everything thoroughly and puts a lot of emphasis into using proper technique.
