Fake Book Song Index
There are over 12,140 songs in this aggregate index, which is compiled from the contents of the 50 U.S. fake books shown in the table below. Together, these books included 21,000 entries. As you'll see in the song index, many of the more popular songs are found in several books. However, over 8,000 songs are available in one, and only one, of the books listed below.
The table lists the fake books included in index sorted by the abbreviations used in the alphabetical song indexes provided here. A shorter, 2-letter abbreviation is also shown. This abbreviation is used in the keyword field of some of the MFDs available elsewhere on this site..
Many of these books are covered in the previous Fake Books section, although some of them, like Richard Wolfe's Legit Professional Fake Book, are out of print now and may only be available via E-Bay. These books are marked with a "-NA-" for the publisher. You can click on titles that are commercially available and the link will take you to Amazon for current pricing information.
I have also created Music Finder Databases for each of the fake books included in our master fake book index. Download them from our Fake Book MFDs page in the Lessons section.
