Autumn Leaves

Here are the unplugged chords that I use to play 1947 Johnny Mercer standard Autumn Leaves. The A section of this song is a great study in the use of circle progressions. The song is played in a moderate 4/4 tempo. Each box below represents one bar. The chord fingerings I use (in a standard tuning) are as follows: Am9 = 5x5500; D9b5/G# = 4x4530; Gmaj7 = 3x443x; Db9b5 =x4544x; Cmaj7/G = 335453; F#m11 = 2x2200; B7b5/F = 1x120x; Em7 = x7578x; B11 = 7x765x; B9 = 7x764x; Em7/B = 7x578x; Dmaj7 = x57675; A#m6 = 6x5666; Am7 = 5x5555; Ab7b5 = 4x453x; G6 = 3x243x; Em = 022000; Em/D = xx0000; Cmaj7 = x32000; B7b9 = x2121x; E7 = 020100; and Em6/9 = 0xbcce (ending chord).
