This book is a treasure, whether used as a tutorial or merely as a chord reference.
I came across this book in a very old, dog-eared but lovingly preserved form, having been handed to a friend by none other than Jazz legend and vibraphonist Roy Ayers (on tour in West Africa with Fela Kuti at the time), whom he had asked to recommend a good guitar tutorial and reference book. Roy Ayers promptly turned to his guitarist and asked him to "hand over the Ted Greene book", and the love affair of a lifetime was born.
Ted himself pays high regard to one George Van Epps, a guitarist and composer I know little of but to whom he owes much of his influence and inspiration. There are pages and pages and pages of nothing but the same major, minor, seventh add-9, 13th, 7/6 and Lord knows how many other chords in every position on the fretboard; chord progressions of every description played with 3, 4, 5 or 6 notes at every register. The voicings (or voice-leading, the highest notes in the chord sequence) are an absolute joy to the ears - I recall one [I-III-IV-V] progression that actually voiced the melody "Moon River, Wider Than A Mile" to my amazement and sheer delight!!! Fellow musicians marvel at what they consider to be my encyclopaedic knowledge of chords - I just laugh and ask them to check out Ted Greene for themselves, and then judge again!
I have since added to my Ted Greene collection with "Modern Chord Progressions" and "Jazz Guitar - Single Note Soloing".
I cannot recommend this book, the series, and Ted Greene highly enough.
