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.
