“…when I first talk with a student, of course, I start by asking them what they want to learn (if they don’t tell me first).  If I have any doubts as to whether or not they love or need the particular thing they are asking for, I’ll ask them why they feel that they have to have it.

A YOUNG  QUINCY – CAT  AMONG THE SUNBURSTS

“….the sounds I heard as a very young guy are the sounds I came back to–those gorgeous chord changes in certain orchestral music. Those can sure keep you busy with something beautiful.”

TED'S NOTES AND IDEAS - NEW in ARCHIVES

Ted wrote 1,000′s of pages and notes, some just jotted down on tiny scraps of paper, others long lists of ideas for teaching.  He also compiled many song lists for his repertoire.  Many of these have been posted in the Forums section of TedGreene.com during the past 4 1/2 years (or so), and in that time the Forums have grown quite dense (cluttered?) with material.  Locating anything specific would be close to wading among papers in his apartment. Interesting to discover how the Forums have come to somewhat reflect the interior of that incredible tomb of information.

Therefore, in order to present certain papers Ted considered particularly valuable for himself and his students, I have created another category most appropriate for these Archives.  I begin with a suggestion from David Oakes, called Musical Priorities (which IS somewhere in the Forums), but now more easily accessible here.

Thanks Barbara!
Are there many sheets with analysis of baroque pieces (I, V, etc) like for inventions, etc?

Hi Will,
 Not too many, I think I've posted most of the completed ones.  I'll have to check to be sure though.  Actually there are probably more pages of chorale analysis.  Again, I'll keep looking, there is so much, one never knows what little treasure is hiding in the midst of it all.  Barbara

Wow.

It's been said that Chord Chemistry is the single most comprehensive book on guitar chords and harmony ever written.  But we have to remember that CC represents Ted's understanding of chords as of 1971.

Then we see these glimpses of his thought process through the 80's and 90 up to the mid 2000's via these notes.  We also see, via the videos, the stacks and stacks of notes in his apartment which makes us wonder what else he had planned, what else had he discovered.  Even though CC and MCP were incredibly comprehensive we can only imagine what those other decades of study and reflection revealed.  Certainly, we were all tantalized by the enigmatic "volume 1" on the cover of Modern Chord Progressions which suggested a possible volume 2, or 3, or 10?

And that's why it's so cool to see these notes and to watch the lesson videos.  That great mystery of "what else did he learn, what else did he know" is being revealed and shared.
