C Edition. Fake Book (Includes melody line and chords). Published by Sher Music Company (HS.242126).

Item Number: HS.242126

ISBN 1883217164. 9.25x12 inches.

For intermediate improvisers. Same format as Volume 1 - songs on the left-hand page, all the information that a band director would have to write out for his/her students on the corresponding right-hand page. The material is all playable by a typical high school jazz combo, but the tunes are more challenging than Volume 1. Still saves the teacher countless hours of prep work, and is a great fake book, even without the educational material!

About Fake Book:
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.
