    Go to your local music store and ask the owners if they know someone. Look in the phone book. Ask friends who you know take guitar and see if they teacher does bass as well.

    Yeah, if there's no bass teahers around, guitar teacher is your best bet - up until a point that is.

    if you're near portland, try Jake Kot. That dude's amazing, and really nice. I think David Friesen teaches there too, but only on double bass.

    good luck
