This is great. Exactly what I was looking for. I hear there is an exercise surrounding chords in Autumn Leaves that is similar or perhaps exactly the same but I've never found it..

Glad to hear it helped! There is also one for Melodic Minor as well now, which has some very interesting chords indeed.

You can also use the Bergonzifying Transmogrifier to enter the chords for Autumn Leaves (or any standard) and get all 24 possibilities for them. Always handy for bass lines and solo phrases.
