Hello everybody!

 

I've been using this site as a source of inspiration for a few years now already. I mostly just lurk around here, but I've got to say that I really appreciate all your contributions. There's enough studying material here to last a few lifetimes! [smile]

Here's my attempt at Ted's arrangement of "The Girl With The Flaxen Hair"

Beautiful, Christian!
You got a great tone, time, touch, and taste - the 4 T's!
Hope you can share more in the future.

Excellent krishabang. Impressionism, pre-first World War, timeless beauty. I think Debussy would have been delighted with Ted's arrangement!

Thank You krishabang, and Hi, I recently came across ted greene randomly on youtube. How I had not heard of him before I do not know. the first video i heard was one where he's doing a large clinic and exploring A minor flavors... Long story short, I made a donation here and the news letter pointed me here as well. Currently I've got 4 Ted books, Cord Chemestry, modern chord prog, single line 1 and 2 - also reviving my telecaster that I didn't care for to much with heavy strings, nut job and Goldendale bridge and saddles per Tim Lerch youtube vid. I'm also a huge fan of his contributions. I'm a guitar player for life so I think I've found a home. Thank you all and thank you Ted Greene, where ever you roam.

Hi thud,
Welcome aboard! Glad you found this site.
There's lots of stuff happening here as far as Ted's teachings and music, and the Forums community has some awesome musicians who are ready to answer even the toughest musical questions. Hopefully you'll find that the material in the Lessons section of the site are an extension of Ted's 4 books - plus some amazing things not covered, such as arrangements and the like.
Dig in and you'll have a lifetime of learning and fun.

Hello everyone, I'm from an Island in the English Channel called Jersey. I have purchased Chord Chemistry and and Modern Chord Progressions. I am very much enjoying learning from these books. I am dipping into both books and trying to follow carefully Ted's explanations and advice. Ted's teachings are just superb I'm sure you would all agree. They have really re-ignited my passion for the guitar. I think the main reason for this is I have learned so much in a short space of owning these books and I know they will be with me for life now.

I've been playing guitar for about 25 years, learnt a bit of flamenco and blues, played in bands. Ted just takes you to a whole new level of understanding. Bits I am looking at the moment are voice leadings and blues progressions. Taking my time to digest the advice day by day. Really pleased I have discovered Ted.

We're a pretty friendly community with some very talented guys ready to share their experiences, thoughts, and advice.
Enjoy!

Good Afternoon!

I just want to say thank you for this beautiful site and the work you spent here, to keep the work of Mr. Greene alive. I donated already with joy.

I just stumbled on Ted Greene coincidentally on you tube and I directly was infected by his gifted playing and the wonderful arrangements. In July 2017 I found that site and started to work on some songs. My fingers were hurting after 3 month of "The look of Love." But I learned so much by working on that and now - after that long time of work, I start getting it in time and order. I worked out some turnarounds for strange fingerings. I studied the neck. What a journey[smile].

 

Thank you from Germany!!!!

Hello all.  I just stumbled onto Ted scanning for jazz guitar albums to listen to while I write my PhD dissertation on sports psychology.  It was the video of him playing at a wedding, and while I am this big tough former football player and grandfather, lol, I'm not afraid to say I wept at the beauty of Ted's playing.

I am now 58 and have played guitar starting with some very basic lessons when I was 12.  I have played off and on for most of the 46 years since.  I'm average for a player I would say, good enough to sing and play in public and at church, with chords and lyrics I can solo instrumentals including a growing number of jazz standards I have memorized or it I have the chords in front of me. I love jazz but being able to read music only just a little I am hindered in improvising and playing real jazz beyond what I can do by ear.  With sheet music I can learn to play a song, but would not be able to sight read. 
My dad indicated just shortly before he died a couple of years ago that he thought it  was important for me to continue to play guitar, to study, to care about and for my family and trust God, so I have become more serious about my playing. I have recently purchased Ted's books on soloing over chords and chord chemistry to enhance my musical knowledge overall and it is helping; I am eager to "Watch what Happens" LOL which I have just about learned this week! From what I have read and seen, Ted's real contribution was through how much he cared about people and helped them. I'm eager to learn more.

While I mostly play a big Washburn Oscar Schmidt Grand Auditorium Archtopwith dual humbuckers at church and with singing, a number of years ago, without knowing, I bought an inexpensive little SX telecaster knock off and ordered it with a "fat" setup, humbucker at the neck and coil pickup in the pan because I loved the sound.  Little did I know how close to Ted's common set up this was! Needless to say, I have had it out a LOT since discovering our deserving hero, Mr. Ted Greene! I look forward to talking to you all more and more, especially as I become more knowledgeable. So sad he is no longer with us, but with the books and limited video seminars we have, and his one fabulous album, he still is with us in a way. 
Thank you for this website.
