Jazz would be a very good genre of guitar to learn. It'll probably mean you learn a lot more theory in the process and likely more technical than rock and blues from the get go (even though obviously heavier more technical styles come into play in rock as you advance, just like most music).

Is it possible to find a teacher to teach a few different genres?

personally i would go with the neoclassical.. cuz if im not playing crushing riffs im playing neoclassical stuff...

i need to learn the rest of fur elise lol

edit: but it might be a lil hard for starters, cuz the pentatonic scale is the one u should start with, but neoclassical cant be played with pentatonics. =p

yeah thats why i need lessons cuz i cant sit down and learn even a peice of a scale. it will take me twice as long to learn a scale as it does for me to learn a song.

Well, classical guitar would be an excellant theory bass, but it'd probably be better to choose another one because the technique (even though a lot of the top shredders were classicak guitarists so it must work out some way).

I'm going to stick with jazz. It should introduce you to a lot of good foundations (different time signatures, dynamics, expressive playing, improvisation etc).

I recently took a Jazz history class and it taught me a lot of stuff I could apply to Metal. Listen to Dave Brubeck.

...but not *entirely* accurate. That's an example of classical compared to new classical *metal*.

Basically, neoclassical is new classical music. Classical music made in more modern ways (instrumentation, mainly). All of it is, obviously, very influenced by original classical music and I'd safely assume that a lot of neoclassical musicians were taught classical, but I guess some might have just listened to a lot of classical music and worked on it themselves, for electric guitar or some other 'modern' instrument.

2 great neoclassical guitarists are The Great Kat & Yngwie Malmsteen, now The Great Kat was university trained on violin before converting the songs to electric guitar, Malmsteen on the other hand has just always attempted to emulate the tone and techniques of violin, now there were many others but those are the best examples I cold think of someone that was just a fan of classical music and one who was truly a classical musician before
