So I’ve been learning to play a bit of Lenny by SRV and it’s turned me onto a bit of a jazz interest. So I’ve checked out autumn leaves as a standard and thought I’d try and make some sense of it.
I’ve read a few tabs and stumbled onto this lesson. I’m yet to pick up the guitar just trying to make some sense of it before I try and learn it.
So the lesson is here.http://pickupjazz.com/autumn-leaves
First bit i’m struggling with conceptually is its in Gmail or Emin. I know the notes are the same but the root isn’t. So does that mean I can choose an inflection of major or minor? How do I find home? I mean it’s either going back to G or back to E isn’t it?
It then tells me I can use E Aolien all over it. Ok so that’s like an extended pentatonic with colour notes that fit the key right? - which is either Gmaj or Emin.
Then each chord has its own scale. This is twisting my melon. So that’s trying to describe each chord as having a penta with a different set of colour notes? Is that right?
Where does a bedroom blues box blaster start with this stuff?
