The Life (Passing) and Transcending of Ted Greene


As the original publisher of Ted Greene's Chord Chemistry, Modern Chord Progressions: Volume I, Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing: Volume I and Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing: Volume II, I would like to clear up a number of misconceptions about the different editions of Ted's books that are being offered for sale on eBay and elsewhere. Unaware sellers are advertising first editions of Ted Greene's Chord Chemistry, a Dale Zdenek Publication, while in fact they are selling third, fourth and sometimes fifth editions. Since the book's title page does not indicate the edition number, I would like to use this space to explain the differences between editions, as well as the number of books printed per eidtion.

Ted Greene edited his own books. Friends of Ted, his mother, his sister Linda Greene (now Linda Jainchill), and I would read the manuscripts, but only Ted would edit Ted's work. Since the first edition of each of Ted's books, no editorial changes of any kind have been made.
