Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsWhat I want to do now is to use a playalong. This is from Aebersold Volume 44 which is called “Autumn Leaves”. What I want to show you is that it is possible to do it - playing it in root position. Now Aebersold’s playalong track is done as a question and answer. The answer is not the same as the answers that I’ve got so it won’t exactly agree in places but, nonetheless, it’s close enough to give you an idea. I just want to show you that you can play the tune in root position even with a bass player around.
