I've been perusing through lots of these so I thought I'd share another sheet of "scratch paper" full of little ideas Ted jotted down.  Enjoy.  Barbara

For all of you who wonder how Ted could play all those difficult chords with impossible stretches - I came across this page Ted wrote in 1978 titled
 "Important Chords For Me To Work On" 

Here is an insight into how he practiced (in 1978 at least).   Have fun with this.

I think this may be a good forum heading
under which to post the following thought...

one idea I continue to flesh out
and experience ever more deeply
( after 30+ years of guitar playing and music study)
is that what we study does clearly pay
dividends immediately
( we see some improvement, growth, etcetera  )
but that the astounding and unexpected reward comes
so many years later as we mature into
being a musician that we couldn't imagine being before...

we can appreciate particular qualities in other players
( and often those particular players
become our heroes )
but it seems to me that we appreciate
them precisely because they
are manifesting some special something that
is dormant or scarcely sensed inside ourselves...
they touch us with something already waiting within
and that we too can render this quality
that moves us if we apply ourselves
with diligence over the long term...

it takes a long time to grow into
ourselves as we would like to be...
so I encourage students to really enjoy the process
and trust that what they will be able to
hear, play and comprehend further down
the road will be an unimaginable pleasure...

our study and our effort is a great gift we give to ourselves...

Thanks-
John C. McCain
