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.

    Good book of jazz songs/standards such as Fly Me To the Moon, Autumn Leaves, etc. The music is lead sheets with words. The chords are the standard jazz chords. It's easy to play if you know chords and how to read a lead sheet. The print is larger...

    so it's easier to read and that makes it easier to play. With lead sheet music, it's up to the musician to make it sound good.
