Watch the Mike's Autumn online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Jazz Master Licks You MUST Know

Mike Stern has an affinity for playing standards and certain ones in particular. The classic Autumn Leaves is one of his favorites. This example is inspired by his performance on that tune. Notice in this solo not only how he negotiates the chromatic sounds in his lines but how he modulates by a half step before resolving into Bb major.
