This video shows the comping voice-leading for Autumn Leaves. This blog post is for my new piano student, Tremaine, so it also has some other material that I didn’t have time to copy before the lesson was over.
Other material: hannon exercise 1 through 4. These will help work on the strength of the ring-finger (which is naturally one of the weakest fingers for playing piano). Click on the pages below to view the full-size image (you should be able to print the pages if you’d like).

And lastly, i’ve uploaded Cannonball’s version of Autumn Leaves…if you’re very ambitious, I’d recommend trying to learn Cannonball’s solo from this track. It’s incredibly deep. Download it here:
You can use Transcribe (it costs like $50) to slow it down if it goes by too quickly. I think there’s a free trial though so you can download it and just use it for this. http://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/download.html
