Who is This Course For?

This course is designed for guitarists looking to learn THE most important jazz standard and expand your major and minor ii-V-I skill set.

It’s for guitarist’s who:

·     Want to build confidence with major ii-V-I chords.

·     Want to build confidence with minor ii-V-I chords.

·     Are ready to learn concepts through a jazz standard.

·     Love to be creative with your solos and chord work.

·     Are stuck in a jazz rut and need a little push forward.

I’ve been playing and teaching Autumn Leaves for over 25 years all over the world and with beginners up to professional level players.

I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to master this must-know jazz standard and have fun in the process.

Autumn Leaves is the most important jazz standard you'll ever learn. 

This tune contains 3 of the most important chord progressions in jazz, major 2514, minor 251, and the 36251 turnaround. 

If you can play Autumn Leaves, you can play countless other jazz tunes that use those progressions. 

This is why Autumn Leaves is such an important tune to learn.

Oh, and it's just plain fun to jam over!

To help you learn this essential tune, I've put together an in-depth study guide with videos, audio, backing tracks, PDFs, quizzes and more.
