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'
