Fake Books
Piano / Electronic Keyboard / Vocalists / Guitar / Solo Instruments

Fake Books are often massive collections with notated melody line, chord symbols, and complete lyrics. These are the mainstay of professional musicians. Once you've learned how to use a fake book, you will enjoy a new level of playing experience removed from the constraints of the realized accompaniment.

Anyone can enjoy the use of a fake book! But if you are not well versed in reading (and interpreting on the keyboard) chord symbols, and don't know what to do to provide a reasonable accompaniment for the left hand -- then the How To Use A Fakebook listed below will certainly help you get a thorough foundation.

Solo instrumentalists can save a lot of money by buying just one large fake book. Especially for those that play instruments not well supported in print music for popular titles, fake books are unbeatable!

    • You will not see many (if any!) of these at your local sheet music store!!
    • All Fake Books below are Sheet Music Online highly recommended titles
    • Each collection below has its own page. To read contents lists click on title names:
