I've been trying to learn on my own a bit and I guess it's going okaaay, but I think I'd benefit from some one-on-one instruction with a good teacher. Anyone know of some good instructors in the Phoenix area? I'm on the west side. I'm particularly interested in blues and rock/metal, and maybe a little jazz later on. And theory doesn't scare me (though I'm not all THAT interested in learning to read music right now...I could though).

Have you thought about having lessons on Skype. Do a google search and you might find the right tutor. Hth
