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.

  • August 02, 2016 Ultimate Rock Guitar Fakebook

    This book is great. The melody of the vocals is presented in standard notation, and main riffs and sometimes solos are presented in tab. The song choices are great. The chords, tab, and standard notation transcriptions are accurate.

  • July 11, 2007 Very nice collection

    The chords are right on the money. The tablature follows the words of most of the songs, but it is not the actual lead part to the song. Over all I like the book, it saves me the time of hammering out the chord structure of the songs I can...

    just look in the book change the key and I am on my way.
