A Key Ingredient to Ted’s Development as a Musician

A Key Ingredient to Ted’s Development as a Musician.

“I knew which sounds thrilled me the most, usually from the moment I would first hear them. Not that I could find these sounds for such a long time. That took years, slowly unfolded over frankly, a few decades. Sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. And actually, though I’m sure it’s no surprise to others who share my fate, it’s still going on at this time. I work on my ‘ear ’at least some, just about every day. I don’t have any choice really, given the choices I’ve made. I don’t make much progress without work. One of my old habits though is I do try to make my work fun when I can.  My students are usually better off with this take on things as well.”

    Great post! I’ll show this picture to my wife as she hates my guitars and papers all over the house! I like how Ted made those blues tunes for example, so we can hear a working example of all the inversions and reharmonizations. So you get inspired, learn how to play it, and learn how it works so you can make up your own creations. I’m in total bliss right now learning all this stuff. So grateful for Ted and Barbara!
