Publisher Comments:

According to a recent survey, one out of every four Americans — approximately 57 million people — plays a musical instrument. And of those 57 million musicians, the most popular instruments are the piano, the organ, the portable keyboard, and the guitar. Hal Leonard Fake Books are designed specifically to be the most valuable and economical collection of music for these instruments; we have the most comprehensive and best-selling line of fake books available anywhere! We're positive that they will be successful in your bookstore.

What is a Fake Book?

When musicians are asked to play a song they've never played before, they "fake" it. One of the most valuable possessions any professional, amateur or hobbyist musician can have is a fake book that contains the melody line, lyrics and chords for hundreds and hundreds of songs. With access to the melody, lyrics and chords of a song, musicians can improvise their own arrangements.

This book is geared for musicians who have never used a fake book before. The notation is larger than that in most fake books, and the harmonies and melodies have been simplified. Includes over 100 songs, all in the key of "C": Ain't Misbehavin'
-- All the Things You Are
-- America the Beautiful
-- Annie's Song
-- Beauty and the Beast
-- Bewitched
-- Blueberry Hill
-- Can't Help Falling in Love
-- Don't Get Around Much Anymore
-- Edelweiss
-- Georgia on My Mind
-- Getting to Know You
-- Goodnight, Irene
-- Heart and Soul
-- Hey Jude
-- It Only Takes a Moment
-- Leaving on a Jet Plane
-- Let It Be
-- Love Me Tender
-- Maria
-- Mood Indigo
-- My Favorite Things
-- My Romance
-- SatinDoll
-- Somewhere Out There
-- Try to Remember
-- When the Saints Go Marching In
-- Where or When
-- Young at Heart
-- more.
