    Been playing for 18 years but I started taking lessons again today. I havent progressed as much as I'd like the last two or three years so I wanted to shake things up. After the lesson today I was excited and felt inspired for the first time in a long while. I'm in a great mood and cant wait to buckle down and make some progress.

    I will post some videos of my teacher Craig Wagner as a reply here in a few.

    He's a jazz and classical guy....but damn he tore the blues a new one today. I was thoroughly schooled and prolly needed to be broken a bit.

    Taking lessons after playing for so many years sound like a great idea. I've been playing since 1986 and sometimes feel I'm in a rut while my friends call that rut my "style".:dunno:

    Dead right. I teach - and I still feel in need of lessons, not so much for new technique, but to unstick the mind glue. It's a bit late for me to take up a seven-string though. I'll stay with four and six.

    Have you heard they have 8 string guitars now? Never heard one but I see all these new prog/metal guys I've never heard of in Guitar World magazine with them.
    Myself, I have enough issues with six strings!

    It's not exactly new. Bluesman Big Joe Williams was playing a nine string back in the 30's.
