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.


Larry

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
