(Dated July 26, 2005.) Here is all the information I currently have. If we get new information this topic will be updated. Also, if anyone has more details, please post them.

Ted Greene passed away last weekend at his apartment in Encino, California. The time of death is uncertain, but was probably Saturday night. Ted was 58 years old.

Ted taught his normal lessons on Friday and seemed in great spirits by those students who saw him that day. There was no indication of any illness. As far as we know, the last person to see him alive was on Saturday afternoon. Some of Ted's students had wondered why he wasn't answering the phone. They asked one of the tenants to talk to the apartment manager who opened the door on Monday morning. The coroner did an examination and an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow. This will determine the exact cause of death. An autopsy is required by law when someone dies alone. They are guessing the cause of death was a heart attack. Ted's family has been notified and will be making arrangements.

This is huge loss to all of us. Ted Greene was an amazing human being and musical artist who touched many lives with his genius. As a guitarist he was legendary and as a friend he was gold. Ted was extremely talented in many areas but dedicated most of his life to teaching the guitar and helping others.
