In this lesson we are going to work on outlining the harmony, first in ‘root’ position then exploring the chords. As I mention in the video, this should be the starting point of your exploration. You then need to move this into different keys – don’t reach for the backing tracks too soon!
In this lesson I take you through a ‘visualisation’ approach to the opening section of the melody. We look at how the melodic line is constructed and some mnemonics to help you move this into the more tricky keys that we will look at in the next lesson…
In lesson three on our Autumn Leaves in all 12 keys course we will take the opening phrase into three more keys.
