I know most of the open chords, but want to find a guitar teacher close to where i live, so i can get better at playing. I started about five years ago but wasn't motivated and didn't learn much. I did Hal Leonards books w/o tabs just the straight notes, and learned how to do that , but pretty much forgot...how can i find a teacher close to me...also, what is a reasonable price to pay for lessons
Uhh no clue... go to music shops near you, or look on the internet, or in the newspaper.
I'm paying $22 per half an hour for drum lessons so maybe around there?
Go to notice boards at shops, and ask guitar shops. Also if friends have any guitar teachers that'd be good.

The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

TooJoo The Band
Right now i'm payin $10 a lesson(half hour) but most of his students pay $12 other places are around $15.
