Here's something that Ted wrote up during a lesson in 1995 as a special request. He called it "The Great Chuck Berry Fill Tune."
I hesitate to notate it, because I'm not exactly sure how Ted was feeling this, and the notation might come off as kinda still and not be accurate to the slides and bends, etc.
If someone else is so inclined to notate it, I'm sure it would be appreciated by all here.

Anyway, it shows Ted had a respect for Chuck's playing and that whole era of rock 'n roll.
I think Ted mentioned Chuck at least a couple of times in the Mark Levy recorded lessons with Ted.
Enjoy!

I remember that Ted played me a Chuck Berry record during a lesson.  He wanted me to hear Chuck playing straight time with the bass and drums playing swing.  AT THE SAME TIME.  I was amazed.

The swing and straight together is what most folks get wrong in cover bands and why Elvis, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, Little Richard tunes and even some Early Beatles don't sound and feel quite right when covered.
It's the "sand in the vaseline" as a drummer once remarked to me.

RIP Chuck Berry.
Long live Rock & Roll!

Chuck, when you see Barbara Franklin and Ted Greene (and
Ted's beloved teacher, George Van Eps) in "the promised land" please let 'em know we're all going to meet up with you guys sooner or later.   So,  stay tuned.
