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.

  • April 02, 2007 Great for improvising!

    My friend has this book, and we've played songs from it together. She's had it for a long time and gotten good use out of it, but still finds new songs in it. This book is great for people who like to find their own interpretation of a...

    song instead of just learning the notes and playing songs as they are written. If you can read music enough to figure out music without hearing it first, I highly recommend this book, especially if you like to improvise.

  • March 26, 2007 Irish eyes aren't smiling.

    A bit disappointed, expected to find more of the old familiar tunes. Perhaps a CD to go along with the book could help to hear how the tunes should sound for a beginner player.
