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 must-own collection includes over 700 singalongs, Christmas carols, classical themes, children's songs, folk songs, marches, polkas, sacred favorites and standards, arranged with melody line, lyrics and guitar chord frames. Songs include: After the Ball
