New From TedGreene.com for Oct. 1020

Autumnal Greetings!

At the writing of this newsletter, it sure doesn’t feel as if Autumn has arrived here in Southern California!  We have been roasting in triple digit heat for days with no end insight.  Yes, summer’s last flame burns bright before she departs to grace the southern hemisphere with her potential furies.


This month brings you Part III of the George Van Eps/Ted Greene Interviews to download and savor.

Moreover, according to the statistics that depict the most popular lesson material, one of the favorites has been 10ths and Inner Pedals. Therefore this month we offer lessons of a similar nature, which bring out the beauty and movement of sustained inner voices and present a wider variety of options.


Lesson Material:

Harmony and Theory: Diatonic 6th and Inner Pedals

Introduction to Diatonic 6th and Inner Pedals – 3 Pages

Longer Phrases Using Diatonic 6th and Inner Pedals (& other sounds for variety)

A Form of Sustained Scale Technique

Diatonic 6th and Inner Pedals – Leading into 6ths and Soprano Pedals (and other sounds for Taste’s Sake)

Dorian and Aeolian 6ths with Inner Pedals  – Baroquish Flavour as a result.


Pennies From Heaven (1936), is a popular American song by Johnny Burke and Arthur Johnston.  It was also the title of a film made in 1936 starring Bing Crosby and Madge Evans, and introducing the song.

Moonglow was first recorded by Joe Venuti and his Orchestra in 1933, with later recordings by Ethel Waters and Benny Goodman his Orchestra in 1934, and has since become a jazz standard, performed and recorded numerous times by a wide array of musical talents.

TUNES:  Chord Melody Arrangement and Comping Pages for:

Moonglow – Ted Greene

Pennies From Heaven – Ted Greene

From the Students – A compilation of the above songs by Paul Vachon


As many of you are well aware, the TedGreene.com lesson section has accumulated an abundance of varied material, a good portion of which we feel will appeal to and be useful for everyone for years to come.  There are many choices, and it is not always easy to choose wisely the first time.

An undoubted truth is: That which stimulates and challenges will sustain interest and produce the desired results.

It is my wish, as it was Ted’s to continually present a vast array of musical options with the hopes that at least some will resonate with your musical soul.

Wishing you inspiration and joy!

Barbara Franklin
