Hahahaha,I shoulda guess you were going to say that!
You're right of course about getting a good teacher. And that's one of the beauties of this site. Chock full of good teachers. I live in a real small town and the one guitar teacher that I knew of packed up and moved. Anyhows, after thinking about it some I think I would like, (need), to learn to play some backup guitar to fiddle and mandolin tunes to begin with. Recommendations as to who would be the best teacher here for me?
