Jazz Standards for Solo Guitar: Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves for Solo Jazz Guitar by Raun Seymour Cole

Here's yet another one of my jazz standard arrangements for solo fingerstyle guitar: the beautiful "Autumn Leaves". Most of the song is actually quite easy to play, except for a few passages where it was a bit more difficult to accommodate the melody to the chords.

By the way, please take a second to "visit" (a.k.a. click a couple of times) the ads on the site, it gives me a couple of cents each time, so it helps me put more transcriptions and exercises like these up for you to play!!



**Update April 1st, 2010** (For Real!) I've included suggested fingerings and my own version on video with sheet music karaoke.

Hi really enjoyed learning this. really pushed the learning and tecnnique. But for one thing that baffled me for a while - I think the 3rd to last tab in the mid section ( B flat 9/C ) maybe marked wrong? Ive been playing it with the higher 3 stings up one fret and it sounds like what you are playing.

thanks Gr8rg00d and Merlin14,

i hear you Merlin, I'll look into it, and Gr8rG00d, thanks for enjoying these, they are my little puzzles i do for fun. I will start posting again (as it's been a while since the last one! Sh** happens) so at this point any suggestion is more than welcome. I have a bunch of standards i need to clean up and write into Sybelius, but i am also open to suggestions.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great arrangements you post here. I am a big fan and now a daily follower.
