    OK, I want to start lessons again, but my old teacher is booked solid, and two other people I've tried have stopped giving lessons.

    Does anyone know of a good instructor in central CT? (Hartford area)

    I already called them. Bob's wife had a baby so he no longer has time to teach. Believe me, he was my first choice.

    Wow, thats awesome! The baby part, not the fact that he's not teaching anymore. Lame.

    How about Mike Asetta? He is over near Portland now, and he is still doing some teaching.

    He is mainly a URB player but he doubles on electric. I think he is a good teacher and all around good guy.
