AUTUMN LEAVES-Fingerstyle Guitar-Autumn of Love and Jazz Magic

Autumn Leaves performed by Robert Lunn

Here is an arrangement for fingerstyle guitar of the popular classic, Autumn Leaves, originally composed by Joseph Kosma. This is a jazz standard that has been covered by so many people. My personal favorite versions would have to be Eric Clapton’s and Nat King Cole’s versions.

I remember growing up, my father used to play the Nat King Cole version of it. Love, love, love his version. I have played it in various jazz band settings since I was in college. I decided to make this recording after listening to Joe Pass’ brilliant rendition of the song.

The falling leaves

Drift by the window

The autumn leaves

Of red and gold….

You can learn this song at my guitar school found on my website.

Autumn Leaves for Guitar (with Tab)

Autumn Leaves performed by Robert Lunn

Autumn Leaves is a popular song composed by Joseph Kosma with words by Jacques Prevert. Later, Johnny Mercer added English words to it. When making this arrangement for guitar, I thought about how a pianist might arrange it, or how a small combo might play it. For example, during one part of the arrangement I include a walking bass.
