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.

  • December 02, 2007 Good value, but...

    There's no tablature in this book and also no information about the man or the songs but it is still good value for the forty-three songs it contains!

  • February 15, 2007 Well worth it

    This kind of book is difficult to source in Ireland, it was well worth my while purchasing at Sheet Music Plus and the price is great. Overall, the book is pitched at a nice level. It provides the basic music plus chords and leaves the musician to interpret from there...

    . I found some chords suspect, based on my experience of Jimmy Rodgers recordings but all the tricky ones are there and sopund correct. I recommend this book especially if you would like to accompany yourself on somgs like My Carolina Sunshine Girl but cannot work out the chords.
