I was wondering if Ted had anything on whole tone harmony?

GN,

I am sure he had a good chunk of stuff on it, but one thing I pulled from Mark Levy's lessons w/ Ted was the following:

1.  Take an augmented triad in any voicing, let's say Caug voiced G#, C, E on the D, G, and B strings, around the 5th fret.

2.  Use any of the notes in the whole tone scale other than C as the lowest note of the chord.  It sounds very cool when you move through available notes descinding in some type of pattern.

In the example from the lesson, Ted moves through the whole tone scale descinding while holding that augmented triad and it sounds like something from a film score!  I know when I play these types of sounds, it gets people's attention.  The combination of the augmented triad w/ the moving bassline is very cool indeed.

Hope that helps.

Someone recently made a request for Ted's page on "Whole Tone Sounds."
In 1977 Ted wrote out a few examples and then did another page in 1978.  Both have been combined here (the 1977 parts are at the bottom). It has been cleaned up a bit to straighten out the crooked staffs, and in the process the page size became taller than a normal 8.5 x 11 page. (you might want to print it out on legal-sized paper).
Have fun....

UPDATE:
The 1977 page mentioned above has been moved to the "Teachings" section of the TedGreene.com website under the "Harmony" area.  In addition, three other pages on whole-tone harmony has been added.
