I've been enjoying my time on the Martin Taylor Guitar Academy - a great supplement to what I've been learning from this site and from Mr. Lerch - a great instructor, by the way.  Sort of like having both Ted and another great fingerstyle instructor at once - quite a combination. In any event, the Martin Taylor site has been a great addition to my practice.  I like his phrasing and the dynamics of his playing.  With that in mind, I wanted to point you toward something Martin posted on his site that spoke to me in a great way and I believe Ted would have said, "This guy GETS it!"  I'll include the URL for you to check it out, and I really urge you to do so.  You'll never be more proud of being a musician.

I hope you'll give this a look.  I read it and felt so gratified by it and then thought of Ted and this site.

Dear Mark, That was a beautiful and touching article you shared, and I can assure you that Ted felt those very qualities about music.
Here is a partial quote from one of Ted's notes about teaching:

“…this is where I come in, my basic function being that of problem solver (and comforter and possibly a bit more here & there).”    

Yes, Mark..... Ted "got" it!

Thank you for sharing a very eye-opening and soul enriching article.  Barbara

Also, several times in My Life With The Chord Chemist, I made reference to both Ted and I using music as  "a healer."
