Tune of the Week-Autumn Leaves-Tenor Sax



This is another lesson in the Tune of the Week series.  This lesson is on the famous standard “Autumn Leaves”.

I play through the melody of Autumn Leaves on the tenor sax and talk about different aspects of the melody that help me remember it.

I then play through the changes and talk about different way to master and internalize these chords.  I demonstrate the concepts of running the chords, randomly running the chords, linking the chord tones, playing over the key centers, using blues scales and playing melodically over the changes.

This lesson comes with 2 play alongs for “Autumn Leaves” .  One is at 120 bpm  and one is at 160bpm.

I also include PDFs of the changes in Bb, Eb and C and demonstrate all the examples on the tenor saxophone. (36 Minute Video Lesson, 3 PDFs, 2 Play Alongs)
