I have many great memories of Ted from the years at Ernie Ball Guitars.
I learned everything I know about playing with conviction and feeling from watching and listening t o him play.
Those years formed me as a person and a musician.
Beyond his staggering technique, he had a rhythmic sense that made the music walk on its own.
More than anything he taught me to feel rhythm with anticipation and warmth.
He was a good friend and teacher and one of the greatest musicians of all time.

I first met Ted at Ernie Ball Guitars around 1967. Does anyone remember if the owner was named Dale? Also, I was wondering if anyone remembers the history of the Ernie Ball Guitar store by Topanga Cyn and Sherman Way? When did it open? When did it close? I remember going by there...must have been early 1970's...and seeing a karate studio where the guitar shop used to be. I don't remember how, but I followed Ted to The Third Eye where he was giving lessons. When did Ted start teaching at The Third Eye on Ventura Blvd? I think it was 1968.

I took lessons there starting in 1976 with Daryl Caraco.
And, of course, it's where I met Ted.
On this anniversary of sorts it's fitting that one should jog my memory about that very influential period of my life.

It was Dale Zdenek who owned the shop when I was there (Dale's Guitars) and then a guy named Robert ?
