PSR Tutorial Index

If you examine the Fake Book section, you notice that most books include a link that takes you to the table of contents for that book. By combining many of these individual book contents, I created a master index of all the songs from 50 individual fake books (see table below). There are over 12,140 songs in this aggregate index. Together, these books included 21,000 entries. As you'll see on the song index pages, 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.

Book List

The table lists the fake books sorted by the abbreviations used in the alphabetical song indexes provided here. Many of these books are listed in the Fake Books section, although some of them, like Richard Wolfe's Legit Professional Fake Book, are out of print and may only be available via E-Bay. These books are marked with a "-NA-" for the publisher. Some titles have links that take you to Amazon or elsewhere for current pricing information.

Fake Book MFDs

The table also shows a 2-letter abbreviation for each book. I have created Music Finder Databases (MFD) for each of the fake books included in the above fake book index. This abbreviation is used in the keyword field of some of these MusicFinder Databases. Download them from our Fake Book MFDs page in the Lessons section.

Print Version

While these pages are useful for looking up a particular song, you may prefer to download all of this information and just print it out to create your own hard copy version. I have done that by putting the information into a Microsoft Word document. The full alphabetical index is 121 pages long with songs listed in two columns on each page. You can download that Microsoft Word file in a zipped format by clicking on this link: You can also get an rtf version in zipped format:
