Hi guys,
The newest Newsletter is now posted and ready for consumption.

We have a very nice article by Ken Lasaine about time spent with Ted.
(And that photo.....  post your thoughts here about the what you think the name of the chord that Ted is playing)

The thrust of this month's "lessons" from Ted is all of his notes and exercises relating to the EIS Murphy system.  This is a bit different from the usual fare of lessons, but we wanted to get it out since it is part of Ted's archives. (Next month we'll have the usual collection of new materials.)

Enjoy!

Thanks Paul for all the work you put into these every month!!

Ken, OMG!  Our musical journey is so similar!  You took lessons from all the same three great teachers I did, Darol, Chips, and Ted, at Dales!  I used to swing by Norman's Rare Guitars, when Norman's shop used to be in Reseda, almost every day after work and sometimes I would catch Ted there.  My last lesson with Ted was in December 2004, also a Duke Ellington song, but the song I was working on was "Take The A Train", of course, since I work for Metro. Go figure!  It looks like Ted is playing a D9 chord (R, 3, b7, 9) on that Borys archtop in your photo! Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, I think a lot of us have very similar experiences in regard to TG.

*After he left Dale's I took a couple of lessons at what I think was his family's home. A big ranch style house out in the west valley(?).

I believe that the chord Ted is playing in the picture is a D9#11.
Voiced: R, 3, b7, 9, #11.
I think his 2nd finger is bent backward slightly, catching the G# on the 2nd string, otherwise it would probably be more arched like the other fingers.
Agree?

Yes!  Ted had an extraordinary way of flattening a particular finger, here being the 2nd, to get more than one string.  Good eye, Paul!
