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.

    Excellent. I have gotten lazy and like to play in the key of C now. I can play fair in F and G but it is more difficult in other keys. I don't sight read much anymore even though, with difficulty, I can. I love this one because I...

    grew up Southern Baptist and all the songs are there and Gaither's as well.

    I like it for two reasons: 1.All in the same KEY, which makes going from one piece to another smooth 2. Being in the Key of C, it is so easy to fill in all the extras. Great for those of us who are not as talented as others...

  • March 30, 2007 Fake Books Are Awesome

    The selection of songs in this book are wonderful, but some of the songs in this book are also found in the Easy Hymn Fake Book, so I recommend only one or the other. Personally, I prefer this Gospel book to the Hymn book, as you can find hymns anywhere...

    . As a beginner adult piano player (less than one year), learning chord stucture is definitely the best way to go in order to see the most progress in the shortest amount of time. One flaw would be the fact that all the songs are in C, which causes some songs to be too low or too high to sing. Music and lyrics in these books are big enough to see, even in a dim room. Another nice thing is that the book doesn't go "chord crazy". Sometimes you'll see a book with chords, and there is a chord change on every single word and you wonder how on earth can my hands possibly change chords that fast! The chords in these books are logically placed which allow smooth playing. I also recommend the Easy Worship Fake Book.
