He said that he was one of Ryan's first students. I don't know if he could play, he eventually became a marine biologist.

No and no to those two statements. If you know what you are doing (and most college/ university guitar professors don't), and you get a lot of talented, hard working students, you will crank out a lot of very fine players. My guess is that Barrueco would ave quit the guitar had he studied with Ryan.
