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.

  • March 24, 2008 Pretty Good Book

    I've really enjoyed learning many of the songs in this book. I'm kind of an "early intermediate player" (a drummer playing guitar for recreation) and the book is definitely geared towards players at my skill level. If I had a complaint about the book, it would be in...

    the "real world" playability of some of the chord and note transitions. There are some strange transitions - for example, if an A note is indicated, followed by an E, why would the A be played on the fifth fret of the first string rather than on the open second string? Similarly on chords, if three barre chords are indicated and one is a G, why would it not be played as a barre chord on the third fret instead of as an open chord? But, these are minor quibbles, the book is a lot of fun and very valuable.
