Can anyone suggest DC/Baltimore area guitar teachers?

I am looking for a guitar teacher in either DC or Baltimore. I am at an intermediate level (mostly rock). I used to take lessons but haven't in about 8 years, so I'm rusty. I am looking for someone with an excellent reputation, which I am willing to pay for. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm having a party on Nov 11th to celebrate the release of Guitar Hero 2 and to rock out to new songs with my friends. I was thinking it might be cool to hang up some fake flyers for my in-game band (Della Rhesus Monkey) around my place for flavor. I have no idea how to go about it, though. I have access to Photoshop, but have very little skill in it. How best to capture that "crappy local band flyer" feeling? Any other suggestions on how to add some nice flavor to the party? (I already have a wig and leather wristbands.)

Ok to just use right hand fingers (no pick) on an acoustic guitar?

I do not use a plectrum. At all. Everything I play (and I am in the initial - mid level proficiency stage) whether it is chords, scales, full songs, licks - I play them on my acoustic with my right hand fingers. I feel fine doing this, and I know that I am probably never going to play an electric. Should I be worried about anything in the future (besides the low volume as compared to a pick)?

banjo 101 for guitarists

I have recently been turned on to bluegrass, and am especially in awe of banjo players. I play guitar and would love to add banjoesque picking techniques to my arsenal, and assume other players have already done so. Are there any guitarists who employ banjo picking patterns? Online instruction, tabs, &c.?

Simple recording of classical guitar - what's a fair price?

Looking to record classical guitar music near me for a reasonable price - I am thinking of posting something up at the music school at the nearby university, and maybe a guitar shop or two in town if I can do that, and making some recordings with willing musicians. Is this a reasonable concept or a blindingly stupid idea? If it's workable, what sort of price range should I pay the musician(s)? [more inside]
