For Guitar Players Only 
The late Mr. Ted Greene. Send in the Clowns.

I didn't pick up the fiddle until I was 28 or so, when I found an old Hopf at Barry's Pawn Shop in Lebanon, Tennessee.

Prior to that, I was a chord-melody jazz guitar fanatic, from high school on.

I learned so much from Ted's book "Chord Chemistry," and consider it a must for any serious guitarist.

But it's nothing compared to simply listening to this great master.

Splash, out

I used to play Send in The Clowns. I read the music and did it my way. I don't even recognize it, when I hear it anywhere else. He is extrememly smooth with the harmonics...especially with such a smooth tone.
