    Comment:  I can recommend a Fabulous guitar and general music teacher, Simon Chardiet. I've been taking lessons with him for almost 20 years, and every lesson is a universe unto itself. We've done all kinds of music, but especially folk and jazz. We live in the Slope, and he comes to our house. He's in a bunch of bands of different sorts, including: rockabilly, country, jazz (the RoofTopers), and his own Punk/Rock & Roll band Simon and the Bar Sinisters.Here's a youtube of him teaching a particular lesson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGtEIS1mrsIGoogle on "chardiet rooftopers youtube" to see some good examples of his jazz guitar playing.He explained to me that good jazz is rooted in folk music, and can teach you how to play folk music that swings.
