I am at the early stages of learning my way around minor 2 5 1 progressions. I've been working with my teacher using Black Orpheus as an example. I love this song but currently it is a little bit beyond me. I have a hard time following the key changes and the substitutions. Is there a song that is very simple that uses a chord progression that can be used to practice soloing using the harmonic minor and/or a song that is very simple that can be used to practice soloing around a natural minor that switches to a harmonic minor and back?

Autumn Leaves might be a tad easier and it's a good tune to have under your belt.


Softly As In A Morning Sunrise is a nice tune (you may want to slow down the tempo at first). The A part is in C minor, straight. The B moves a bit, but it's still manageable.
