    Great, let me know how he is as instructor. So far I have been able to get where he goes with his licks and incorporate them, to some degree. I am amazed I simply stumbled on the guy

    It helps if he has a guitar.

    I’m gonna start wandering thru old black men’s backyards looking for guitar players. ;)

    Does make it easier, doesn't it? The guy that taught Ray Charles had an old upright piano (pick a note, then 4 up, 5 down), and Yank Rachel learned on a mando. Some learned with a chunk of broomstick with a wire and a cigar box. But you're right, some kinda instrument does help.
