Fake Books and Lead Sheets and Chord Symbols...
"How To Play More Notes Without Reading More Notes --Playing Piano From a Fake Book Using Just the Printed Tune and Chord Symbols!"
Most professional musicians play from a book called a "Fake Book". I bought my first fake book containing only about 200 songs when I was a teenager -- they were illegal then, but most musicians owned them -- for $50. That would be equal to $500. or more now. But fortunately, they have since become legal, so you can buy a real good one with 1000 songs now for $50. or less. A fake book contains just the melody (tune) and the chord symbols of a song, so you have to know chords to use one. But when you do, your playing comes alive -- you're only reading a few notes, but playing lots of notes.
I really want you to have this course because it shows you exactly, step by step, how to make your piano playing fuller and much more exciting and interesting by reading just the single melody line and adding all the exciting stuff using the chord symbols (Gm7, Eb9, C-9, F13, etc.). If you've ever heard a professional pianist play all over the keyboard, and then notice that the music he or she is playing from is nothing more than the melody line and chord symbols, then you have witnessed a fake book in action!
Once you learn this skill you'll be reading only a few notes per measure, but playing handfuls of notes -- arpeggios, chords, runs, riffs, fills, etc. All I can say about this course is "Get it!" It comes with a booklet of lead sheets (just like a fake book, but with less songs) and a chord chart, in case you're rusty on your chords.
