I need some help.

Is there a guitar teacher in the area that charges reasonable rates for passing on their knowledge? I've been shocked by the high prices that some tutors charge. I've had quotes of up to £20:00 for a lesson! £20:00 blinkin' pounds! Who on earth earns £20:00 an hour in North devon? C'mon now, let's get real. I want to learn Rockabilly/Country/Blues guitar. If anyone can help me, then please contact me.

    I guess people have to make a living. We've always booked half hour lessons for our kids to keep the cost down and found teachers more than happy to pack in lots and give lots of 'homework' to practice what's learnt in the lesson.
