How To Play From a Fake Book
- Highly recommended if you are just starting out with "fake book" format. It's a different world, but a wonderful world of personal creativity!
If you click on the example pages below, and are not sure (or kinda. . . well. . . lost) as to what you could do to come up with a good accompaniment (left hand), then you definitely need to get the "How To Play From A Fake Book" book, along with any of the below.
(Just a bit of advice - based on decades of teaching experience - from Dr. Vaga (doctorate in piano performance), head honcho here at Sheet Music Online.)

This book features larger notation than usual in fake books, and uses simplified harmonies and melodies. All songs are in the key of C, and there is an introduction with basic instructions in playing from a fake book. A very good choice for anyone familiar with basic chord structure, looking for a fake book that is easier to handle! Highly recommended, I always use this with my own students as an excellent means for learning improvization at the keyboard. - RV

amazing grace
are you walkin' and a-talkin' for the lord

he loved me with a cross
he touched me
heaven came down
he's still workin' on me
higher ground
his eye is on the sparrow
his name is wonderful
home where i belong
how great thou art
i bowed on my knees and cried holy
i feel like traveling on
i just came to praise the lord
i just feel like something good is about to happen
i love to tell the story
i saw the light
i stand amazed in the presence (my savior's love)
i'd rather have jesus
i'll fly away

stepping on the clouds
surely the presence of the lord is in this place
sweet by and by
there is power in the blood
there's something about that name
til the storm passes by
turn your radio on
unclouded day
upon this rock
victory in jesus
we shall behold him
we'll understand it better by and by
when i can read my title clear
when the roll is called up yonder
when we all get to heaven
whispering hope
why me? (why me, lord?)
will the circle be unbroken
wings of a dove
wonderful grace of jesus
written in red

How To Play From A Fake Book
by Blake Neely


If you have never played from a Fake Book, and need some help with identifying chords, learning left-hand patterns, etc., this is a very good book for getting you started.

How to Play From A Fake Book is designed for the keyboard player who would like to learn to create arrangements (and accompaniments) using only a melody line and chord symbols.
This book will teach you the necessary skills. The materials which are presented by example and for practice are taken from popular and show music, but the principles work equally well for any kind of music.

An excellent book for the adult student enjoying home-study at the piano or keyboard, without the help of a teacher. The conscientious student will certainly progress in playing ability by following this clear and comprehensive approach. Highly recommended.
