Ive been with my teacher for 3.5 years and no longer feel that I am progressing with him.  I am considering teaching myself via an online course or DVD.  Do any of you have any recommendations....  I don't read music but I can learn from Tab or video lesson.

    I forked out for this. Not cheap but quality. When you think about it, it's only 4 or 5 lessons in price,

    Looks good, Jocko! Be interested to read your verdict.

    It is very professionally done with quality video and CD tracks. It starts off teaching you to read Staff, gradually building across the strings in the first position, then it works from there teaching you styles and techniques, gradually getting more and more in depth. I only started the course, as I then started lessons and I didn't want to spread my time too thinly, but for someone wanting to learn, by themselves, at home, it is recommended. There is also a very good forum and support network.

    I am doing Gibson's Learn and Master Guitar. It is good, has a great teacher with extra weekly live sessions, a student forum and additional courses such as fingerpicking, blues and others for further, deeper delving into particular styles. The teacher, Steve Krenz, is considered one of the best distance learning teachers.

    Watch out if you buy the cheap one linked to above as it only half the course. The course has 20 DVDs containing 10 DVDs with 20 lessons and a further 10 DVDs (which are missing from the cheap sets) with 20 workshops, taking the lesson topics further.

    The other main one is Justin Sandercoe whose tuition is free at the point of entry and you then buy whatever materials you choose to along the way.

    And then there are other tutors like Marty Schwartz on YouTube.
