How do you find a guitar teacher that is down to earth with you and can teach the style you want? I don't know where to start!
The same way you find friends.

Shop around.

Please add me if as a friend I helped! (I like to think I'm a friendly person)
Well, you can start by seeing if any of your local guitar shops offer lessons.
Check out their websites and see if they have any of their teacher's videos demoing their playing style.
See if any of them fit your style of playing.

Also, if any of your friends have taken lessons ask them about their teacher.
