I had no idea this was live and available:

http://www.tedgreene.com

Just about anything you want to know about playing solo guitar you'll find here. The knowledge extends to just about every other area of playing guitar.

Ted Greene was one of the holy elite of guitar playing and was in company with Lenny Breu, Chet Atkins, Gene Bertoncini, Mick Goodrich, and a handful of others who knew/know the guitar inside out.

You don't find better stuff than this. Anywhere.

If you want to master the instrument, start here.

Thanks Bob! [:D] Ted's style is so reminiscent of my study of Howard Roberts recording's. I knew an old player from Northern California that introduced me to this style of guitar, resulting in a major change in my usage of inversions, scalic chord structures etc. Love listening to this stuff, I only wish I could play it!

Bob,
I've never heard of Ted Greene before, so I decided to open the Baroque Counterpoint 1 pdf and take a look.  His warmth and wisdom jumped off of the page.  Something about just looking at his writing, his comments, the assignments he gave, made me feel like I'd actually been in the room with him, getting a lesson.  
Thanks,
Paul Jacobs

I had never heard of Ted Greene either--but then there are lots of interesting musicians I suppose that I have never heard of.  A very interesting cite.  I'll be "studying" there from time to time.  I guess I had an instructor somewhat like him once but I didn't get that much out of him in the short time he was here---talked way too fast and way over my head all the time; I'd ask a question and he'd go off on a tangent that even puzzled me the more.  I've learned the most from just such cites and books and from my own meanderings.

Thanks for posting the cite.  Cool.

I'm another T.G. virgin, but I quickly downloaded his Jazz/Blues files. This ties in very nicely with the larry Carlton site that guitarmanuk steered me on to as he was demoing a jazzmans approach to blues comping. Who said blues is three chords? I haven't got enough of a musical brain to be a jazzer, but I would welcome some influence from that direction. Nice post, thanks.
The only thing that exists is this moment now.

That is good to see Bob! I knew there was some legal wrangling over his stuff for a while.
I'm a fan from way back. I have his books but they are a contant reminder of my lazy streak and I have not applied the wealth of great info in them. It's funny Yoyo mentioned Carlton and Greene. The first two jazz LP's I bought were Ted Greene's and Carlton's "Strikes Twice".

Ted's Chord Chemistry was the first guitar book I ever bought and at 13 and as a beginner it was well over my head, but when I swing around back to NY again, I may have to dig it out for some fun studying.

Thanks Bob.  I have 2 of his chord books from my youth (a LONG time ago) and I still reference them today.  I'll have to listen to one of his audio performances.
