Tune of October: Autumn Leaves. Of course.

Post by Anyanka » Mon Sep 30, 2013 10:56 am

By popular demand, tune of October is the highly appropriate 'Autumn Leaves'. Ben (aka fjsys) has already recorded this (see this thread).

However... could one of you who knows the tune please link to some sheet music?

Don't give up yet Jarvo.
The tune is so nice that it can be played straight with the right hand, especially with your Roland.

Good tuuune.

The "New Real Book", a reliable source of Jazz standards, has it in G minor, but I think I've also heard many versions in E minor (the second link). The key of the music in the first link has been transposed up for Bb saxes, so I wouldn't use that one if you want to play it in one of the standard keys...

Gmin is pretty much the standard key for the bands I play in, (not on accordion). I’ve been been practicing in that key just in case sometime in the future...

Don't know if anyone else has noticed but in the zisman doc there is some stuff on chording that I found very useful on the pages after the dots - for me worth having as a reference

Exactly why I like this one. I intend to try it a bit jazzed up with these chords.
Also found them useful with the Infirmary Blues (still need to record that one)

Blues and Jazz Chords ------------hmmm, not always a good mix ---- well not from the purists perspective ----but St James does straddle the genres so should be a good listen.

Have tried some of these ...shall we say ...exotic chords ....I knew about Am7 - CM and A. I am using E (counterbass row) as the bass note ...sounds OK...but G maj 7 and C Maj 7 .....GM and DM , CM and GM together, wow they sound sweet as a nut.....good PDF Glenn, cheers.

Jarvo,
Try the minors together as a substitute for the major chords. Also sounds really cool.
The A+Cmin is not that difficult either for making Am7.
Of course, if you want other m7 chords just slide that pattern up or down the bass buttons.
I intend to demo it in my recording of the infirmary blues this weekend.

This is A Work in a Lot of Slow Progress, but in the spirit of ToTM....just to see if I 'm getting anywhere near the "funny" chords :oops: ....and how the hell do you bass /chord them ? In fact I chorded then played a bass note instead on the m7s and just chorded the G and C maj7...it's not tuneful yet ....will it ever be ...as Scooby says "Wuhr ,I dunno" :lol:
