Ted Greene

Solo Gui­tar

Guitarist - - Feature -

The term a ‘gui­tarist’s gui­tarist’ is of­ten bandied about ca­su­ally, but if it ap­plies to any­one, it’s Ted Greene. Known prin­ci­pally for his must-read books Chord Chem­istry and

Sin­gle Note Solo­ing, his abil­ity to play com­fort­ably in prac­ti­cally any style went largely un­no­ticed, ex­cept by the many stu­dents he taught and those lucky enough to hear him play live. Solo Gui­tar was Greene’s only of­fi­cial record­ing and demon­strates his amaz­ing abil­ity as both an ar­ranger and a per­former. Us­ing his beloved Tele­cast­ers, he con­jures up pure gui­tar magic out of stan­dard tunes such as

Sum­mer­time and Ol’ Man River. Stand­out track: Send In The Clowns Tech­nique take-home: It’s a 33-minute gui­tar master­class from start to fin­ish!
