Frank Varela was my teacher for 2 years when i still lived in CT. Awesome player and funny guy.
You guys have any vids of your teachers?
Here are some teachers I have been fortunate to study with over the years.
Bruce Saunders (not great sound quality)
Bret Wilmott (I could not find a video of him playing but I couldn't not include him; he had such an influence on me today)
Mick Goodrick (the other guy in the video is not too bad either ;) and was indirectly a teacher of mine as well)
Norm Zocher (Norm is one of the coolest people you'll ever meet. Know so much about so many types of music too).
I studied with Glenn Ginn for 4.5 years at Morehead State University, he is a monster in pure harmonic terms, very blues-influenced, in the vein of Abercrombie or Henderson. Here's a clip of his tune "Outlier".
Here's a clip of my current teacher at University of Louisville, Craig Wagner. He is a virtuosic fingerstyle player, and great guy as well!
