Thank you to the transcriber and adder-onner of diagrams / chord forms in the inarguably
very handsome blue font on the 7b9#5 Ted pages in drop two land e.g. V-2 Dominant 7b9#5 chords.     

 It appears that each of those 7b9#5 four note gems are inversions of mi6 chords a half-step above the root of the Dom7b9#5 chord.  In other words, looking at the first chord to take the stage, the D#7b9#5 is represented by four inversions of Em6.   etc etc.   However, and I speculate, after reading (and re-reading and re-reading) Barbara's beautiful / amazing book and also what Ted said about things such as this in one of his masterpieces, Single Note Soloing Volume 1, that Ted didn't think of it this way.  Rather, I speculate, Ted, may have viewed these from the roots of the Dom7b9#5 chord, e.g. those little circles?   Either way, very hip / hep ........

It may have been a Just Jazz Guitar interview where Mr. Carlton asked Ted if he (Ted_ thought Wes was thinking a melodic minor scale up a 1/2 step over certain chords--- dominant 7ths, for instance.   I recall Ted answering Mr. Carlton's fine question with something like Ted could hear Wes playing those notes but didn't think Wes was thinking that way. 

Again, thank you for the labor of love you shared in the aforementioned pages

Paul V gets the credit for the blue font additions to http://www.tedgreene.com/images/lessons/v_system/V-2_Dom7b9Sharp5Chords_Fill-InQuiz_Top4Strings_1984.pdf.  Paul has long used blue for his invaluable editorial enhancements.


Ebm6 = D7b9+ no R are homonyms.  Context, that is how the chord functions in a progression, decides which name is appropriate for the chord shape.  While the chord shape is the same, the root location is different. Ted encouraged us to learn each homonym from it's own root.  The dashed circles on the above page indicate the "invisible" roots, meaning they were visualized but not played, for 7b9+.

Similarly, as you say, Ted encouraged students to learn modes, including modes of the ascending melodic minor like the altered dominant scale, from their own root.  Who knows if Wes did this or if he thought relatively from the parent ascending melodic minor scale?

Basically, I think this is what you are saying, tedandbarbaraare1, but I thought I'd clarify.

Thank you James for your spending the time to articulate/ clarify precisely what I intened to say.  I appreciate it very much.  Your words have provided me with the comfort that comes from no longer having to speculate.   

And Paul, there are no words adequate to express the gratitude for all that you patiently and caringly give and share. 

Barbara once told me that she completely trusted Paul and was grateful for all his help.   I echo her sentiments.

Regarding the December upgrades, all the non-pdf links aren't working and are instead showing an Error 404 page.

The non-PDF files don't open when you click them.  As per the instructions at the top of the 

"Transcriptions" section:  for program files (highlighted in blue)do a right-click on the file and "Save As"

That should do it for you.  If not, let us know.
Thanks!
