This book contains the melody lines/lead sheets for all 130 songs from Volumes 1-4 of Sing-Along with ElderSong and Christmas with ElderSong. Each song is written in a low, singable key, and includes the melody line, chord symbols, and lyrics, and is arranged for musicians comfortable performing from a lead sheet/fake book or for singers who prefer to see the melody line with the lyrics. No bass lines/piano left-hand parts are provided.

The songs are listed in alphabetical order, with Christmas/holiday music as a separate section.

What's the difference between The ElderSong Fake Book and Play-Along with ElderSong - Full Piano Edition?

The ElderSong Fake Book is presented as a collection of lead sheets, also known as a “fake book” to jazz/gig musicians.

Each song is presented with the melody line, chord symbols, and lyrics. No bass lines/piano left-hand parts are provided.

Those in need of complete piano arrangements with a left-hand part and harmonies in the right hand written out should purchase Play-Along with ElderSong – Full Piano Edition.
