For me this a a sticky situation. As most of ya'll know from either talking to me or other post. I have only been playing for 4 months now. I have a great teacher in the respect that he see's my weeknesses and builds on them, also i have no problems saying where i struggle for the week, I have lessons for 30 minutes once a week. I get along with him and he is a nice guy etc... this is where i am having issues though. I am noticing in his words. " i just give you some scales and some chords and let you go, Cause you are figuring out alot on your own" While I am sure that is a good thing that I am doing that. I find that there is a lack of structure. The biggest issue I am having and it is really bugging me is, I am trying to learn rockabilly, which he knows nothing about, So when it comes to questions on runs, turnarounds etc.. he doesn't have the answers i need. I also want to learn travis picking, he had never heard of it till i brought it up to him. Part of me feels loyal to him because yes he is a good teacher and he has really helpt me make leaps and bounds. The other part says in the long run he is hindering my playing. So go back and forth on the issue if I am holding myself back by having a teacher who knows nothing about what I am trying to learn. Or take what he is giving and keep on figuring the rest on my own. So my head hurts from thinking so much about this I figured I would ask all you good people for some grounded advise.
