Did Ted recommend any method (classical or not) for training the right hand? Thanks. __________________ Jazz has too many doors. May be I have to close some of them.

I'm not sure if Ted recommended anything specific - and I'm sure someone will chime in if he did - but I humbly submit that my own book on right hand technique would be helpful for fingerstyle guitarists in all styles. You can take a look here:

I don't believe that Ted had any specific right-hand exercises - certainly nothing like one gets in formal classical guitar study.
I think in one audio lesson he said something like, "just do the best you can, and it will evolve naturally as the needs grow." (not an exact quote). __________________ --Paul

You might try being your own adviser, sort of. Identify what is problematic and make your own exercise. If general dexterity is a problem, practice playing the songs that you can slow down, listen closely, and then gradually keep accelerating to what Ted might call 'space cooley tempo.'
Or Ask specific questions here. This has been plowed before . . . L

If you are using a pick at all, you might look up Troy Grady. The guy is a genius. His interview material with fusion and jazz player Martin Miller is very enlightening.
