About Hal Leonard Fake Books

A "fake book" contains songs written in a concise format that includes only the melody and chords, letting you interpret the song's performance as you feel is appropriate. This is great for quickly learning songs by yourself or with an ensemble.

Each song in a fake book only has a single melody actually written out in notes, which is usually the vocal or lead melody. This melody will have the lyrics written beneath the notes, with each word aligned to its corresponding note. Above the notes of the melody will appear the names of the appropriate chords to play - for example, a "C minor" chord would be written as "Cmin" or Cm", rather than writing out all of the notes in those chords as they appeared in the original version of the song.

This format is very compact, which is why you will often see fakebooks containing 500 or more songs.

  • August 26, 2009 The Only Book You Will Ever Want Or Need!!

    I love my book it arrived via UPS in three days! One day earlier than expected 4 day delivery. I was so excited I ripped open the package immediately and started playing. I played for 90 minutes before I realized I had to put it down and run my errands...

    before dinner time. Doesn't matter how old you are, you will love this book:)

  • February 09, 2008 This book rocks!

    This book was purchased for two of my family members-an adult who loves classic rock and a middle schooler who is strugling to learn his chords. They love to play the pieces in this book together for hours. What a great way to learn together! ...and I get a...

    free concert every night, which is a huge bonus!

  • October 21, 2007 Great Fake Book

    This book is easy to read, easy to use. The song selection is great. There is something for everyone who listens to rock music; from classic rock up through today's titles.The spiral binding makes it easy to keep open on the piano. I am a self-taught beginner...

    on the piano and this book is easy to use. I also think people who have been playing an instrument for years would find this book useful as well. I would recommend this book!
