Hello Ted Greene Forums!

 

I'm working my way through the Modern Chord Progressions book, and not to be nitpicky but I want to make sure I understand his handwriting and meaning of a specific notice completely. 

Here is a photo from the page I'm talking about: https://i.imgur.com/zxXaCDi.jpg

"Notice that a V or V I progression is tacked on the end of these progressions. This is commonly done to give the phrases a sense of completeness. (Correctly read?)

Indeed I see one progression ending on a V. Is he talking about "phrases" in a context of continuing to play/evolve after the V? Or is this written notice related to actually ending a song on a V chord?

I don't think that A7/6 chord is an ending, you could end it by playing a D of some kind I suppose. The A7/6 makes it nice to repeat the phrase again too.

Hi Larson,
Yes, you got Ted's handwriting right.  Dave is correct stating that you can use that A7/6 to resolve to some kind of D major sound. I think Ted left a lot of the final resolutions up to you to choose.
