Did Ted advocate any form of exercise on building speed and technique on the guitar instrument for his students?

What would his workout and warmup regime would be.

Regards

Ted wrote out some sheets for his students who had similar inquiries regarding facility which I am passing on to you. As for Ted's personal warm-up routine, basically before a seminar or any gig he would simply sit and play for about 12 hours straight, going through tunes & improvising, developing fantasies on themes, it was wonderful to listen to. Then he was ready for anything! B.

Hi,

I'm not sure what the dots with tails mean in the last picture.

(3) Key of Gb, 2nd row of chord grids.

Also the 3rd from last chord (Cb), with the joined eighth note symbol.

Could someone explain them to me ? Thanks!
Bob

 It means that the note is held over from the preceding chord and not re-sounded. In short, it's a tied note. 
 The 3rd from last chord (Cb), the joined eighth note symbol most likely indicates a change in harmonic rhythm from quarter note to eighth note.
