I wondered if Ted had any materials for intro and endings on different tunes and blues, also blues turnarounds?

Regards

Hi,
I don't have any exact handouts from Ted about intro's and endings, but I had a few lessons with him on this subject.  I recorded the lessons on cassette, then transcribed them to paper.  (Unfortunately I don't have the cassettes any longer).  I'll attach some of those pages here.  I don't know if they will be very helpful to others, since we were discussing some examples of assignments that Ted gave me to work on.  Anyway, here they are, enjoy.

Hi Barbara, Loved the page on turnarounds, did ted do a page on turnarounds with just the roman numeral format in a list?

Thanks

On page 99 of chord chemistry there is a list of 25 turnarounds from the chapter on blues progressions. I've only tried a few of them but there seems alot of potential for combining and aplying substitution priciples to the turnarounds, which Ted suggests in a preceeding paragraph. For those who don't have a copy of chord chemistry, I'll post the list (if this is a copyright infringment, please either forgive me, or buy a copy of the book).

1) Imaj7 VIm7 IIm7 V7
2) IIIm7 VI7 IIm7
3) III7 VIm7 IIm7 bIImaj
4) III7 VI7 II7 V7
5) Imaj7 VIm7 bVI7 V7
6) I bIII7 IIm7 V7
7) IIIm7 bIII7 IIm7 bII7
8) IIIm7 bIII7 bVImaj7 V7
9) I bIIIdim7 IIm7
10) I bIIdim7
11) I IIIm7 IVmaj7
12) bVII7 VI7 bVI7 V7
13) I7 IV7 II7 V7
14) I7 bVII7 IV7 V7
15) I IIm7 II7 V7

Ok, thats part of the list, but I'm sure you get the idea.

Thanks for that, although i have had chord chemistry for 3 years and never knew,goes to show how long it takes to absorb bits, but i guess it's best used as a reference rather then a page by page method.

Thanks again

Hey guys, lately i learn lots of Tes arrangements and try to arrange some apprpriate Intros and Endings. 

For intros i often use as a base:

1. Harmonic runs
2. ii - V
3. backcycling to the I or V.
4. chromatic movements into the I Chord.

For Endings:

1. Harmonics of the last few chords or the I chord, maybe add a 9, 11 or a sus
2. classic V to I
3. Revoicing the I chord and move it up the neck (e.g. inversions)
4. chromatic movements into the I Chord.

i really like the Sologuitar harmonic runs. Are there any "patterns or rules" to follow.

Has someone other ideas for nice intros and endings?

Stay tuned

Alex

Hi Alex,
Great ideas.
You asked about the harmonic runs and if there are any "patterns or rules to follow."
Boy oh boy.....YES!
Ted called these "harp-harmonics."
There is an area in the Lessons / Other section for these pages:

Have fun!
