This is the first 4 measures of the classic song Autumn Leaves. There has been many great recording of this song and I’ve listed some of my favourites in the songbook pages. I’ve arranged the chord progression here in the key of G . The first chord in the progression is Am which moves to D7 and then onto G and then Cmaj7. I’ve used a “p” “i” “m” “i” right hand picking pattern as I think it gives a nice flow to progression. With this picking pattern the thumb plays the root of the chords on the lowest sounding three strings of the guitar – E A D – and the index finger “i” and the middle finger “m” play on the highest sounding three strings – G B E. Go to the Autumn Leaves Guitar Chord Progression page for the the full chord progression for the song and go to the Autumn Leaves Guitar Lesson Chord Chart which lists the left hand chord shapes I use in the arrangement.
