    Autumn Leaves

    I love the way things are explained. Sometimes I have to go over them again, but that’t just me. I had a stroke last July so I’m trying to improve my left hand. Overall, I love your style of teaching. I will be getting more lessons in the near future! Thank you, Leonard, J.

    Awesome course.

    Hi Nick, I love the Autumn leaves course. I initially thought it was going to be too much over my head, but I’ve been working through it with my sax teacher. I love that you can slow it down d change the key..etc. I was wondering if there was a way that you can turn off the lead voice (your soprano sax), but still keep the drums and bass so that I could try jamming along? I already feel that I’m a better player because of your course.

    Hard work but worth it!!

    First of all, thanks for all the work you’ve put into this course. I feel the course is excellent value for money. It has given me so many ideas on improvisation, not only on Autumn Leaves but applicable to the chord changes used on so many songs. One of the problems with YouTube is that it is very easy to wander from site to site without studying. By paying for this course it has made me concentrate on a particular set of chord changes which has helped so much. I’m sure I’ll be back for another course once I’ve completed this one. Many thanks Regards Larry

    Thoroughly engaging

    The inclusion and analysis of four classic solos is what separates this masterclass from previous material offered by Jazzduets. I think that Nick has come up with a winning format for future masterclasses and I look forward to what he will release next. Stella By Starlight? All the Things You Are? Moments Notice?

    A great way to learn jazz standards in depth

    Excellent experience of following the steps religiously. It's fun too. I wish I'd come across one like this before, although Autumn Leave isn't new to me I'm taking it deeper now. I just have to be patient and work through it thoroughly.

    it keeps getting better

    The teaching in itself is as usual very good but it is getting easier and easier to master it with the technology used, you can rehearse at any speed with the sound AND the score, loop any part you want Thank you jazzDuet ;-)

    It's a very good exercise, but I would have appreciated the addition of guitar tabs.

    Hello Nick, I enjoy reading and listen the materials provides in the course. I was Ill and bounded to house, so it was good to file some time with it. things are better now and I am practicing the music on my EWI from akai. the only thing I miss in the course is the tekst of the song as reference. nice course, after this one I will loo to another. best regards, Chris.

    Autumn leaves

    Excellent, le morceau est expliqué en détails du point de vue harmonique, il y a aussi des exemples des plus grands solos, ce cours est une pépite



    Is this translation correct? "Excellent, the piece is explained in detail from the harmonic point of view, there are also examples of the greatest solos, this course is a nugget"

    Thank you for this resource

    I appreciate the detailed analysis of this autumun leaves and each solos. Especially Approach Note Tutorial is great, I think it would be interesting to have a triad pair approach for each code.
