    Good point - That was one of my reasons for picking Greg Koch in addition to his obvious Tele prowess, he redid Hal Leonards 1through 3 lesson books.

    Tommy Emmanuel.

    Not only is he a monster player, but he strikes me that he'd be a good teacher too.

    Robben Ford is another one. I've got a few of his DVDs, and not only can he play, he communicates what he's doing in a clear, succinct manner.

    I could share my knowledge on how to play sloppy covers of some great songs with only 30 years practice.

    Ted Greene, not only a great player but he was revered by his students as an incredible teacher.

    I'm a big fan of Ry too! Not sure if you're familiar with a recording "A Meeting By The River" with VM Bhatt an Indian virtuoso musician. It's Indian type music with Ry's slide playing accompanying it. A beautiful recording if you're into that type of thing. Not for everyone.

    I dont know who's time I would want to waiste to deal with my playing inefficiencies, I thought of Dave Gilmour ( he can do more with 3 notes than Yngwie can if a 1 minute flurry) but really, other than shooting the crap , we'd have nothing to say to each other.
