I would like to hear some suggestions as to where should a person start Ted's lessons? These lesson sheets that are posted here were given to different people with different musical background and goals. There is no suggested learning path, which I think there should be. Like the Trail Guide for Chord Chemistry. Should a student learn all these lessons or shoud one just delve into the V system? There are many ways where to start and what to do. Well, like I said I need some suggestions. Thank you!

If you want to learn V-System chords, start with V-2 here:
http://www.tedgreene.com/teaching/v_system_V2.asp The question of where to start with the enormous amount of Ted material comes up frequently. The answer depends on you. What do you love? Do you love Blues? Then start learning some of Ted' Blues sheets. What in guitar do you love or want to learn more about?

I think we all agree about the guide. I'm working on it. Until then, where you start really depends upon where you are and what appeals. Ted often asked his first time students "What do you want to learn?"
Sort of an intimidating question, but since he could go anywhere he was interested in, I suppose it was a good place to start. There are basically two approaches: Topic - scales, chords, baroque, etc. Musical - Jazz, blues, holiday, standards . . . You might be in either approach, or at the intersection of two. The forum can make recommendations if you tell us a bit about what interests you. (My answer to Ted, by the way was "I play mostly country-rock, but I'm pulled by film scores as I heard them all the time as a kid." That confounded us both! 😉 )
