I was hired to play a holiday cocktail music job, and needed one resource to play from. The price was fair, and it appeared to have most of the tunes I would use for this four-hour playdate. This book is extremely useful to a professional such as myself. There are numerous songs, sacred and secular, that you would expect to find ("Silent night," "The Christmas Song [chestnuts roasting]"), a few you wouldn't expect to find ("Silver and Gold" and "Holly-jolly Christmas" [from "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"]), and a few that you probably don't need (I won't list them here). There were some glaring omissions, such as "White Christmas" and "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas," but I chalk those up to the logistical nightmare of acquiring rights. I give Hal Leonard Corporation credit for getting the reprint rights on so much music. One final reminder: This is a "fake book," which means you get a melody line, lyrics, and chord symbols, which assumes you have some skill at faking music from the given notes and chords.

I like the song choices, most of them, anyway---but the chords are too advanced for beginners.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Wide range of holiday (Xmas) music including newer pop songs and standards. Of course all the standard liturgical ones are there, plus new pop charts. Will do a player well to have this during this holiday season.

They're right, this really is the ultimate Christmas fake book. It has a great blend of Christmas hymns, traditional favorites, and contemporary. Less expensive than the sax fake book and just as helpful.

I am enjoying my music book, but seems it could have had more familiar songs.

Can a second year flutist use this book?
by Doesitwork 12/16/2010
3 answers
  • A. a second year flutist can directly read the melody lines in this book. This book is in the flute key (C) and can be accompanied by a guitar or pianist playing the chords. The range of some of the songs in this particular book may be too low and have to be raised an octave while reading. A Fake book is a simple representation of the melody and the basic chords of a set of songs and is generally used by professional musicians for playing "out" on gigs. Young and inexperienced musicians could use it just for melody reading, but the chords are not spelled out and may be only rudimentary chords needing enhancement (which a pro can usually do).

  • A. A fake book provides melodies in treble clef, lyrics, and chord symbols for accompaniment. It assumes that a keyboardist or guitarist can read and interpret the chords, and also assumes that the player has enough knowledge of the song to reproduce it using chords and a little "earwork." I don't know exactly what the skill level is of a second-year flutist, but I think the song ranges are mostly flute-friendly, and the simpler key signatures should be playable. Good luck!

  • A. A "Fake" book give only the treble clef with the melody line only. Also, above the treble clef are the chords written in. This fake book is written for C instruments, so I'm not sure what a flute is. You could play it, but you may have to transpose if playing with a different keyed instrument.
