Do you want a huge Christmas song collection all to yourself this year? It is the season of giving, so I’m sure you’ll share your songs with others! In this article, I will share a great ukulele fake book of Christmas songs that will keep you endlessly entertained. Let’s check it out!
What Is a Fake Book?
A fake book is also called a lead sheet or sheet music. It is designed to help a player play with ease since it has a melody line, lyrics, and chords (just the basics). Hal Leonard publishes a series of fake books under The Fake Book title that are comprised of some of the most popular songs.
How Does It Work?
Fake books are designed for the musician in mind, and the music can be played on any instrument. Having a melody line with single notes can be very helpful, and it keeps things simple. The chords let you know what chords to play with that melody line. And the lyrics are there for you to sing along with and know where you are at in the song.
