Autumn Leaves is a great way to start improvising following the harmony because it's a well known tune and it still covers a lot of important cadences in a key. In this lesson Iw will go over a set of arpeggios in one position, some exercises, target notes and strategies for making solos where you can hear the harmony in the improvisation.
