I have a Taylor 712CE. It is the finest thing I've ever owned.
I don't seem to dream much anymore.
Judging from people's reactions, I'm advanced. I have too many gaping holes in my playing to ever be an expert, but I'm working on it.
I became a 'real' guitar player by reading a series of columns by Harold Roberts in Guitar Player magazine. Essentially he taught the 'CAGED' method, which I've seen ascribed to Joe Pass. After this I became one of 'those guys' who could hear a song on a record and figure out exactly what was going on. It also gave me the confidence to find work as a weekend warrior. More recently I took lessons from Towson based guitarist Tobias Hurwitz. He is a great guitarist and a great teacher. He can adapt to accommodate your questions and level of skill. Essentially he gave me a graduate school experience by allowing me to determine the direction of my lessons with my questions. I don't really have a favorite guitarist, I tend to be impressed by individual performances. I do think that Carlos Santana's work on 'Black Magic Woman' and Jimi Hendrix's work on 'All Along the Watchtower' are as close to divinity as man has yet to achieve, though.

Email. Your organization appears to be an offshoot of the Baltimore Guitarists Group.
I'm a singer/songwriter hobbiest. I was born in the summer of my 27th year.
