Great find, thanks. I enjoyed looking through the pop/rock book. It clears up some of the mystery behind the old 60s mumbled lyrics. "Get it on, Bang a gong" grin

Sinbad, I grew up on TRex. I still love his nonsensical lyrics. Oozing 70's sensuality and seems so harmless now.

Great find yes but CAN THIS BE LEGAL?

Those fake books are still for sale while this site is giving them away.

I'm very skeptical of sites like this. Illegal DLs can lead to tons of computer problems via hidden trojans, malware, spyware and the like. YMMV

Mario,

The site is legal. It's the same non profit that provides the internet "Wayback machine". The print function has been disabled in the pdf files so a user can not download the pdf and print out a copy. +++ HERE +++ is the "About" page for the site.

Good question and good practice to ask the question. It's a lot better to be wary than to get malware or trojans.

Thanx Jim for clearing this up.

{edit} - FWIW - I was able to DL a PDF jazz book and print out a song. Thus, at least here, the print option is available allowing individuals to pirate songs. Note that I tossed the song I DLed, i.e. I do not steal. YMMV

Since you brought it up a related item - indices of songs to most fakebooks

1) a master index of Real Book 1, 2, The New Real Book (Sher Music) 1,2,3, and the Standards Real Book

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:jdN5ffODUPYJ:getreitel.com/com/music/realindex/real_index2.pdf+&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca&client=firefox-b-1

(there is a PDF link at top of that page), and

2) Then three is the on-line searchable index of ALL (except the OP listed one)

https://www.seventhstring.com/fbindex.html

so if you need the basics of almost any tune, mainly standards and jazz, you can probably find which book to look in. Just remember FB's have mistakes and sometimes there are much better chords, chord substitutions and extensions ("color") than given in the FB.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
