Attached are Ted's two original comping study sheets for "Our Love is Here to Stay".
Both versions are in the key of F.  One is designed to use the V-2 chords (Ted's chord Voicing group #2) on the middle 4 strings; the other one is for the V-2 chords on the top 4 strings.  Ted only wrote the letter name of the chord above each diagram.  The student was assigned to write in the chord flavor.
I've also attached my compilation pages that combine Ted's original chord diagrams with a lead sheet.  I took the liberty to add the full chord names in red.
If you analyze the chords of each study, you will see that Ted took the same notes and provided two ways to play them on different string sets.

For Ted's solo guitar arrangement of this tune see:

Enjoy!

Hi Andy,
Ted created a system whereby he could cataloged every possible chord voicing for guitar.  He first called them "Voicing Groups" VG-1, VG-2, etc.  But later shortened it to simply V.  V-1, V-2, and so on...but it still stands for "Voicing Group."
This is a subject that hasn't been completely clarified.  Ted originally planned to publish a book on this topic alone.  It was his unique organizational method for guitarists.
Here are some links to past threads dealing with this.  As you can see there are some differences of opinion about it.
