Part 1

The late, great, underground guitar hero Ted Greene performing "Autumn Leaves" and explaining keys, harmony, and counterpoint at a 1993 seminar hosted by Musician's Institute in California.

Ted Greene was a master guitarist with a unquenchable thirst for knowledge that resulted in an unbelievable understanding of music and the mechanics of the guitar. While he did put out a single solo guitar album in his lifetime (available from www.artofliferecords.com), the majority of his legacy lies in his teaching material. Ted's published works include the following books: Chord Chemistry, Modern Chord Progressions, and Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing Vols. 1 & 2. These publications are among history's most in-depth studies of music as related to the guitar, and have inspired and challenged musicians for decades, and by many are considered to be essential studies for anyone serious about the guitar. Ted was known by his students and followers a very humble and spiritual man, who always prefered backing a singer or an occasional private gig to any concert hall type performance. However, his true passion was as a teacher, and students came from all over in order to learn from him. Upon entering his apartment, a student may have expected to find thousands of books stacked all across the floor and Ted's many guitars spread out throughout the apartment. Ted was kind hearted, deeply spirtual, unbelievably knowledgable (yet always seeking to learn more), and incredibly skilled as a musician, and and was taken from us long before his time. Ted, you're legacy will continue to inspire us all for years and years...Rest in Peace.
