Hey Anders,
My personal request is for Both Sides Now, from the audio recordings I sent in. It's an incredibly pretty piece; Dan Sawyer mentioned that he thought it was on par with the songs on Solo Guitar, though Ted told me he was just "fooling around."
My good intentions to do it myself have never materialized. I think Paul mentioned a while ago that Francois was working on it; Francois, is that the case? We don't need to duplicate efforts. 
Many thanks to everyone,
Allan



Hey Paul, 
Any specific piece that you (or anyone else) would like to have transcribed?
Must not necessarily be from this recording. Just thought I'd ask if there are any requests.

Yes, "Both Sides Now" is very pretty. Have you tried the arrangement that Paul posted? Ted´s written arrangement is very similar to the recording, and Paul did a great job transcribing parts of it. I´ve played the arrangement many times, and it´s one of my favorite.

How about "Embraceable You" from California Vintage Guitar, or "Giant Steps" from Seashell. "High Hopes" from Messin´pt.1 is very nice.

Anders, my vote is for "Que Sera, Sera" and "Around the World" from "Messin' I".  These are sweet and simple, and I suspect you could transcribe them rather quickly.
(If you need lead sheets for them let me know...I may have a copy.)

However, there's a tune that will be posted next month in the second part of "Messin' I" that would be my first vote....but I can wait.  [smile]

I would be willing to bet that Ted's guitar was not 20 cents flat. His sense of pitch was so good. Instead, the playback machine did not match the speed of the recording deck… causing the music to play flat. This sort of thing is very common with cassette recording technology. And Ted usually had the cheapest decks (radio shack) and the cheapest cassette tapes.

Dan, are you saying that Ted had perfect pitch?
I thought he had developed a super sense of relative pitch, and played his instrument so often that he could pull notes out of the blue and be fairly close.
But perfect pitch is a whole other thing.
But I just don't know.....

Thanks so much for posting these At home recordings ! Hard to describe but Ted's playing puts me in a dreamy state every time. The baroque stuff is so gorgeous, the way he improvises those intricate lines is mind boggling, it's like J-S Bach reincarnated. I'd love to transcribe those and share it. 
We can also feel how much of Ted's tone comes from his mastery of the instrument, just beautiful and heart touching.

Thanks again !

Hi Earsoup,
Glad you like the new recordings of Ted. 
Yes, we'd love you to transcribe and share with us.....please!  [comp]

I love it during one of the pieces where Ted admits he doesn't know the bridge and Barbara tells him to just make up his own bridge.
