This is my first post to this forum and iIlove to just spend time looking up subjects on this site.  I have a question about Ted's charts.  I have been looking at some of the charts and found that i don't really understand the triangles and the squares in the charts.  I know it is probably something extremely elementary. (e.c.Autumn Leaves)

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the Ted Greene musical family!
I think you'll find the answer to your questions about the symbols in the Forums:
Forums - General Topics - Triangles, dots, x's, circles.

Update 7/1/2012:  Here's a new document "How to Read Ted Greene Chord Diagrams" posted in my "From Students" section at the top of the list:

Hi Guys,
In the chord chart of Baroque lesson (Cycle of 4th), The title is: "I & IV, Small triad with 2 to 1 decoration". I don't understand the meaning of "2 to 1 decoration". Please help.
Thank you.

Hi Vagabond,
Notice how on this page in each grid box there are solid dots indicating chords and X's indicating a second note after the chord is played.  the 2 to 1 decoration refers to the relationship of the number of notes in the melody in ratio to the chord. 2 melody notes to 1 chord . hope that helps.
