NEW for AUGUST at TedGreene.com

August 2010 TedGreene.com Newsletter

Mid Summer Greetings,

This month we have New Audio and the accompanying article resulting from such.  Ted interviewed George Van Eps for the August 1981 issue of Guitar Player magazine. The entire interview with George was taped by Ted, which he later used as a reference when he wrote the article.    We are presenting both the audio (in several parts) and the actual magazine article in total.

These very informative audio CDs also offer candid, warm and casual conversation between two maestros and friends.

In the Tunes section you will notice three versions of My Funny Valentine.  Two versions have been posted on the website for some time now, so we decided to add the third and final version of Ted’s arrangements. This will give you the ability to make comparisons and choose the version of your personal preference.  Or perhaps learn all three, mix and match!  For your convenience, and because Paul is so conscientious, thorough, and truly cares about making the learning process as accessible as possible, he has included a page of comments and explanations.  What an exemplary person Paul is indeed!


Ted was continually stressing the importance of ear training. If you are familiar with the material, review does no harm.  If this is new for you, it is guaranteed to improve your musicianship!

To be found in the section OTHER

1. Learning to Hear Major going to Minor

2. Learning to hear Minor

3. Learning to hear V7

4. Learning to hear V7b9

Tunes: My Funny Valentine – Version #1 Ted’s (9/12/74) original chord melody arrangement

*Note:  Ted’s other original versions of My Funny Valentine#2 (12/18/74) and #3 (3/22/99) are already in the Tunes section.  Paul has now made compilation pages for those versions.

From the Students:

My Funny Valentine – Ted’s 12/9/74 arrangement with compilation pages by Paul Vachon

My Funny Valentine – Ted’s 12/18/74 notated arrangement with compilation pages by Paul Vachon

My Funny Valentine – Ted’s 3/22/1999 arrangement with compilation pages by Paul Vachon


Please feel unrestrained and certainly harbor no obstacle about wishing to communicate, correspond, interact, question, query, comment, criticize, remark, doubt, and make suggestions and requests.


Communication is the essence of understanding.

Wishing you all inspiration and enjoyable experiences musically and otherwise.

Barbara Franklin

    I have listened to the interview a few times, however, it seems like the interview is cut short and the end where they talk about honest and dishonest mistakes. This is great stuff!
