This package contains the sheet music and TAB for the walking bass line that I've written for 'Autumn Leaves'. The chord progression is included along with a backing track (from iReal Pro).


'Autumn Leaves' is one of the most popular Jazz Standards. The chord progression is relatively easy to memorize, and contains a lot of II, V, Is, which makes it a great piece for anyone studying Jazz form. It has quite a relaxed melody, which makes sense if you listen to the lyrics (which I recommend, as will give you a better feel of what the song is about and how it should be played). 


This song is usually played in either G minor or E minor; this version is in G minor at a tempo of 110 bpm - the same as the Cannonball Adderley recording. Once you can play through the piece with the backing track provided, have a go at playing along with the Cannonball Adderley version (the bass lines will clash a little, but it gives you a good feel for the song and what it sounds like with the melody).
