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.

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 25, 2003 Soooo gooood!

    A must own for any jazz musician. This book has the look of the popularly bootlegged “Real Book.� There are many songs in this book which are unavailable in any other publication. What I like best about this book are the charts to Miles’ fusion songs. Seeing the charts to...

    such songs as, “Bitches Brew� will really enhance one’s enjoyment of the recording.
