Ted brought this up at a seminar, and it may be in cord chemistry but I couldn't find it....Everybody seems to have their own method..from what I gathered from the seminar tape he used sequences
like I-III-VI-II-V...cycle 4 routes to learn a tune...Is this correct?....Is this how he remembered the changes?..Thanks.....

Pfui!  This forum is anything but dead!  I prefer to think of it as quiet and thoughtful.

To the question of how Ted memorized etc.  I think the answer is yes. 
And I think, if kept simple and straight forward it should be ok.  ("ii-V-iii-vii for the verse - ii-V up a 3rd for the bridge."). 
There is a caveat however:  what Ted meant when he was teaching (and what he taught) may not always be what HE was thinking.  If I look at joey's wedding tape I think that sometimes I see "Hmmm . . . a diet pepsi might be nice right now . . ." in the middle of some tunes.

Yep!, I was thinking the same thing watching the wedding tapes...One tune after another, seemed effortless...( I'll check out Jerry Coker).......

Hi Guys,
Attached are a few of Ted's pages about Roadmaps for songs.
Does this help?

Thinking of road maps-you guys that had lessons fom TG-Did Ted write out blues progressions (other than the one's in G and Bb)? I often watch the Youtube sequence when he accompanies Cathy Segal Garcia singing "Kansas City Blues" plus the others he did at various guitar shops.Does anyone have any of these please? Peter.

Hi Peter,
Is this helpful?
http://www.tedgreene.com/images/lessons/blues/ModernJazz-BluesProgressions_1977-08-08.pdf
I don't think there's anything written up for Kansas City Blues or anything from the video you mentioned.

Thanks for the prompt reply Paul-this will be of great help-its frustrating watching TG right in the middle of a blues sequence when the bends down to adjust his amp while keeping a few bass notes going then carry's on from where he left off(to mild applause) as if nothing had happened! That was his genius-my own ineptitude in trying to work his progressions causes the frustration...Ah well some are born to it-others have to toil....P.

Paul, Is there other pages to the the Understanding Chord Progesssions Part 2 you posted above? I found the Beatles examples very useful due to the familiarity of these. I'm sure that was Ted's intent and am curious about other parts of this particular lesson he had. Thanks in advance.

Hi cperron,
Ted made several road-map pages.  I'll take a look and see what I can put together.
If there is sufficient interest in this I could post a bunch of them in the Teachings section for March.  Yes?
