Hello Everyone , I am new here on this forum and new to ted music as well . Been playing for 15 years mostly blues rock , just discovered Ted, I am so much inspired by his beautiful style of playing and music . I am looking for some guidance with that kinda style of playing. 
Last year i started learning jazz , dont know much , just started . I have been covered Drop 2 voicing and can reharmonies melodies with drop vocings , know little bit about harmonic function like B.D or Sub V or about adding notes of the chords . 
I love chord melody style 
I will really appreciate your guidance . 
many thanks

Well, I wish you courage. I myself am only a passing novice, and French who writes poor English

Since you're talking about "Drop 2," I can tell you that this corresponds to the V-2 series http://www.tedgreene.com/teaching/v_system_V2.asp
in the V-System
http://www.tedgreene.com/teaching/v_system.asp

similarly the drop3 corresponds to V-4

Ted Greene met the special needs of each student very precisely, but when faced with everything, the risk is to drown

in this case, visit https://www.jazzguitar.be/forum/ there is a topic https://www.jazzguitar.be/forum/teachers-wanted-students-wanted/

but beware, if you like Ted Greene, there are very few competent teachers who know him. You can look at Sid Jacobs or Tim Lerch, but I don't know if they're giving classes

Though the forum is a bit slow many of the contributors here studied with Ted personally.
This is your best resource for TG teachings.

Tim Lerch offers lessons on his site and is one of the few people I see posting content that is very Ted inspired at times. 


ive been studying the lesson sheets on this site for years. Lots of brilliant stuff but overwhelming for sure. Don’t lose hope

Tim Lerch is an absolute master of all things Ted, as well as many many other things. I believe he teaches via Skype. If you check out his website I'm sure you can find out.

Mitch is a really great guy and fantastic player. I've never met him in person but we have spoken over the phone a couple of times. We have a mutual friend. 

I have done a selection of what I call "TG quickies". Short videos specifically aimed towards folks who are intimidated by the breadth, scope and sheer volume of the Ted Greene material. It is my desire to show that there are many approachable Ted techniques, concepts and applications of TG material that can in fact be employed by intermediate and even novice guitar players.

 Yes, I confirm that Ken's videos (not only TG quickies) are very good and very educational. [thumb]
