Hi folks, I wanted to ask your advice. I’ve been looking for a guitar tutor of late. I’m getting serious about playing and so having someone to guide me and help me avoid getting stuck in ruts would be really useful. Trouble is I’ve not managed to find many in my local area (I live in Essex, between Maldon and Chelmsford). I had a trial lesson with a chap last night and I’m not sure if it is worth going on with him or not. He was a very nice fellow. However, he seems to be into folk-rock/classic blues playing which is not really what I am after. I want to learn to play a combination of progressive rock and metal. I’m concerned that while he is no doubt a good guitar player in his own style, he may not be in a position to teach me some of the techniques for playing the style I really want to learn. On the other hand, he did pick up a few things I needed to change right away with bad technique, so there is clearly some value to be had there. What would you do. Would it be worth sticking with him for a few months and seeing how it goes, or would I be best off looking elsewhere and finding someone that plays in the style that I am really after.
