*About "Fake" Books (NOT specifically for harmonica)-
A "fake" book contains songs written in a concise format
that includes only the melody and chords which can be
used and read by all instruments. This allows you to
interpret the song's performance as you feel is
You must be able to read music and chord
notation to use "Fake" books. This is great for quickly
learning songs by yourself or with an ensemble.
Each song in a fake book only has a single melody
actually written out in notes, which is usually the
vocal or lead melody. This melody will have the lyrics
written beneath the notes, with each word aligned to its
corresponding note. Above the notes of the melody will
appear the names of the appropriate chords to play -
for example, a "C minor" chord would be written as
