There's a book by Howard Morgan that looks REALLY good.  It's a workbook and it appears as though he walks the student through arranging a song in the chord melody style...

It's this book..."Through Chord Melody and Beyond"...

So much to learn, so many books....might be a good place to start..I don't care for ( Morgen"s) solo style very much, but that doesn't mean the book is bad..I just bought a copy of " cord substitutions for Jazz guitar....again, so much to learn...good stuff...you can spend the rest of your life just going through Ted's material...many of us guitar people are hooked on books......

Eddie's book was a joy to publish, and it may still be in print as at least one university class used it.  It was widely distributed and was certainly in print from at least the 80's to well after 2000.  I suppose its time to call Alfred and ask . . .  There is a very interesting section on 4th chords and their usage . . among other great things.
By the by Ed and Ted did know each other and Ted definitely thought very highly of Ed. Thank you Ms. "wally doodle all the day"  for mentioning it.

Yeah, It is the Eddie Arkin book...13 bucks on amazon...can't beat that...well laid out, lots of stuff to work on....This material is what I need to work on at this time...so it is timely for me...Always the problem with books, either too advanced, poorly presented material, or to basic...so if your a book hunter preview as much as possible before buying or its going to your book shelf...
I have a few on my shelf....don't we all.....and yes you can find the same material here on Ted's site...I'll put a plug in for another book I have worked through and returned too..That's "All Blues for Jazz guitar", by Jim Ferguson..

Good advice, I looked into Herberman a few years ago and he just seemed too be talking over my head..In my case I need to take it slow...Its one thing to learn concepts and with my memory, to remember and recall months later...Those blessed with a good memory have a huge advantage...I guess I'm not really a book hound, I was an internet hound for a time, copying all sorts of stuff off the net until I found that my real interest was cord melody
and then I was able to focus a little more....I'm here because I just love Teds
music, style, sound and amazing teaching materials available from so many
generous people.
