Or you could try the yahoogroups Jazz Guitar List, Classical Guitar List, and for all I know, there could well be a Fusion Jazz Guitar, Latin Jazz Guitar, Gypsy Jazz Guitar and Celtic Guitar List. I’ve found them extremely useful over the last few years.
Your local music shops can be a good source of information. Hang around for an hour or so, buy a couple of picks, talk to the guitar tech, talk to anyone who comes in, try out a guitar or two and play some licks in the style you’d like to work with someone on. Guitar shops are like bait and tackle stores - guys go in as much for the talk as for anything else.
Local university, esp. if they have a music school. I’m confused - I thought University of Washington was in Seattle; what’s with the Spokane? Am I being whooshed? If it’s Seattle, there’s got to be an equivalent to the Chigago Reader/Georgia Strait/Now Magazine/Eye Magazine with the want ads in the back advertising for ‘musicians wanted’.
Hell, if you’re that stuck, I know some folks in Victoria and Vancouver to set you up with, if you don’t mind a ferry ride or a road trip.
