Look what the amazing Dan Sindel created!!!  Another way to share Ted with the world.  I think one can't have too many paths leading to the same place, if the place is good.   Continuing to reach out to others, I want so much to share Ted Greene with the whole world. 

For those of you already here, you have found the path another way.  For those of you just beginning your journey, Welcome!

Hey Lexforce,
Cool...you're attending MI right now!  I attended from 1978-79 (then known as G.I.T.).  I was just 20 years old, and it was one of the most important times in my life.  The first time I saw Ted was when he came and gave us a seminar at the old 5858 Sunset Blvd. office building.  His playing and discussion made me re-think about what I thought was possible for chord-melody playing.  It was a transformational experience. 
I've often wondered how many MI guitarists and Berklee guitarists visit this website.  If so, do you find the material presented here helpful in you studies there?
Keep spreading the word...Ted's music and teachings open lots of windows in the musical mind.
Best wishes to you on your musical journey!

Wow! One of the most amazing recordings ive heard so far (i bet theres an neverending supply of mindblowing stuff to hear though) was Londonderry air or danny boy, from GIT 78, i guess you where there then?
Yes to me, thanks to finding this site and listening to all that pops up on youtube i think i pretty much found what i wanna do or try to do on guitar, and thats chord melody and harmony, and i wouldnt have if i hadnt heard Ted Greene! Since im at MI im kinda trying to take in as much information as possible you know with Scott Henderson being there every week amongst others, but i think that chord melody and jazz harmony is what i want to do the most!
Actually my private teacher studied with Ted, i havent really asked him everything about his experiences with Ted yet, but he has given me a lot of this stuff.

Currently just trying to get down all the triads and all the inversion of the triads and play them in difference cadences, like in the "fundamentals" page here
The material here is amazing, and i actually want to thank you for making some of them easier to interpret for people new to the way he wrote with chord grids. The rhythm on the staff and the lyrics helps me a lot!
Sorry for a long post and have a great day

// Linus Lexfors

An aphorism from Quincy:

“To spend each day

as if one had

a thousand more to spend,

to perceive in each moment

an immensity

as if it had no end.”

Thanks, Will!  That is a real "Quincy quotation" you will find it no where else.  He whispered it to us one opportune evening - we were stunned.

Here Quincy rests after assisting Ted with some work.

Another great pic! Love the quote as I have just recently gotten into chordal playing after 29 years of rock/blues guitar solo focus. I feel a lot of urgency to get this up to speed asap, but it can be frustrating to know it will take time. The most joyful times are those when you're absorbed in the moment with no expectations or future focus.
