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.

    Yes this particular book has many forms of originality. I use it to not only reminesce when I was a little boy in the fifties' but to song sight read and keep up my regular exercises. This edition of Real Jazz is really helping me as I record the song...

    as background and then do the minus part with trumpet or guitar leads. Thanks,,, Vidal C.

    Difficulty Level:
  • November 02, 2001 This is a good place to get started...

    Bad thing about fake books is duplication...and HL actually did a good job this time limiting the number of charts that appear in this and "The Ultimate Jazz Fakebook." Between the two there is a vast rep. here...although this one has more instrumental charts, there are a lot...

    of more little known standards gems here for vocalists. That is the reason that I bought it in the first place... it had a chart that I was searching for and couldn't find anywhere else. Yeah, maybe the chords are not always the tastiest, but what do you want from a fakebook anyway?
