Music Library

Fake Book Index

Local index to contents of more than 100 fake books held by the Music Library. A fake book is a collection of musical lead sheets intended to help a performer quickly learn new songs. Each song in a fake book contains the melody line, basic chords, and lyrics - the minimal information needed by a musician to make an impromptu arrangement of a song, or "fake it."


To search on a composer or lyricist use the last name then a comma and then first name. ex: Lennon, John
