word of mouth, bass player not a guitar player, working gigging professional,one who listens and understands you and what you want to get out of it, will teach theory, reading skills, finger exercise permutuations but will also sit down with you and show you some licks as well. The important thing is you want to get a balance of theory as well as instruction from a person who is a real player, not just some geek with theory knowledge and drills to give you and is still an average player himself. I think we all need several teachers to take lessons from. The theory guru, the gear guru, the drill sergeant, and that one crazy azz who is just a phenominal player.
