definitely, thats all my teacher and i have been doing, is finding all root combos all over the neck, just running through the chords, and then running arpeggios and whatnot through all possibilities

learn your major 7, minor 7, dominant 7, and m7b5 inversions all over the neck, and learn how to quickly turn them into 9th chords, etc

that will make comping easier.


why don't you try "Out Of Nowhere" it's cool.

Get Aebersold's volume 54, meant to be easy standards. Or just get a real book and scroll through and find something with easy changes. The analysis will be good practice too.

yeah, the real book. it's amazing.

good standard songs are like, Take the A train, Take Five, Straight No Chaser, manteca,

learn the riff from a "sunny moonlit walk for two" to blues, look up miles davis' album "kind of blue", it's amazing.

Of course God has a sense of humor. Look at the Platypus...

You wanted a standard that is 'like Autumn Leaves'..
Try 'Beautiful Love'
Hear Jim Hall play it on YouTube too.
It's not difficult, but it doesn't have a middle eight bars, like most standards.

It's cool how it leaves you thinking there's a 'middle eight' to come but then nothng happens!

It's in a minor key, so easy-peasey'
Sort of..

I have The Real Book volumes 1, 2 and 3. All of them are amazing.

Abersold Vol. 54 is great if you're just starting out too. Excellent suggestion.



It even comes with a nice backing track of Jamey Aebersold comping for you.

Oleo!


You're gonna tell someone who's just starting off with Autumn Leaves to have a go at Oleo? I'm sure you know Oleo is one of the tunes based on rhythm changes. Certainly isn't a bad idea to get familiar with those, but a bit advanced, don't you think?

I quite like Have You Met Miss Jones and Take Five.

I've been living jazz for 5 years and still can have trouble soloing over a tune like Oleo. I doubt someone who just play autumn leaves is gonna want to dive into that, it might be depressing :P Granted, the head of that tune is sweet.

And this is just my opinion, but I HATE Take Five. I think it's become such a stupidly cliche song. Have You Met Mrs. Jones is nice though, I did a solo chord-melody of that for my music school auditions.

i studied the work of cole porter & gershwin...

between these two there are alot of standards...and the melody/lyric lines are timeless...Love for Sale can be done in so many different flavors...as can .. Just One of Those Things

these tunes are not harmonically difficult but you can color them forever with voice leading and substitutions...

also...when you study just one composer...you get to feel/see how they approach melody/harmony...some changes will bring smiles...some awe.... enjoy
