BLC,
Glad you like the material.  I love it when Ted shows different harmonic treatments of a short melodic phrase, as he did in this month's "Here's That Rainy Day" chord study.
Boy, I needed to look up the definition of aliquots.
I agree with your comment about David's valuable expert help.  Thanks again, David!

Hi guys,
Mike found a small typo in the "Here's That Rainy Day-1st phrase w/various harmonizations" page in the "Chord Studies" section that just went up this month.
The error was the fret number on the first grid of example #3.  It was a 4 and should have been 5.
It has been corrected and the new file is now up.

Sorry....we try to catch all these things before they get posted, but things fall through the cracks.

Paul, David and team,
Thanks so much for this month's lessons and audio-video clips.  You guys do a great job in presenting Ted's music.  I really appreciate all the transcription work you do - I would have to struggle reading and deciphering Ted's handwritten pages.  I like Leon's story, and the Tim Lerch YouTube videos are priceless - keep 'em comin'!
I LIKE everything.

BLC,
Clever solution to the fret mistake!  
I don't remember who it was, but years ago I saw a video on YouTube of a guitarist who was constantly re-tuning while he was playing - very accurately and lightning fast - in order to get certain chords/notes, open strings, etc., for the piece.
It was country music style.  I think he had special tuning pegs that accommodated quick re-tunes.  It was amazing!

I think you might be referring to Adrian Legg

Paul, 
Those are Bill Keith banjo tuners on Adrian Legg's guitar.  Banjo players have been using these to do the same thing for years.  Adrian is not only a great fingerstylist, but a guitar tech wizard, constantly tweaking his guitars.  He wrote a book back in '81 on guitar modifications titled "Customizing Your Electric Guitar" through Amsco.

Hey Dave,
Thanks.
Yes, I believe there are more videos.  And some unreleased audio recordings too.

Regarding the tuners:
If I recall (from my old ODE 5 string) there were two tuners placed adjacent to each other - like the two outside strings on the finger board.  You'd set the tuners to match an open D tuning, and then use their second setting for open G tuning (?). 
The trick was to move both at the same time with one hand movement.

They were close enough that you could stretch your fingers etc to hold both tuners, and tune them in one motion(whew!).  Once I got that down, I felt like I was ready to tackle some of Ted's fun fingerings.
Back in the day I think we referrerd to them as "Keith-Scruggs" tuners.
