Basically a good song book.

I've used this brand of fake book in the past for piano and found the quality to be very good.

As far as fake books go, this one is as nice as any other that you will find. I did have the thought that the promo songs in the description tended to highlight all of the songs that were familiar to me when most of the songs in the book were ones I'd never heard of before. However, although I've just been a frequent bluegrass listener over the years and am now voraciously learning every song I hear since learning guitar so I think the book was more than worth the money. I've used this brand of fake book in the past for piano and found the quality to be very good.

I was iffy at first but bought it anyway. I know a lot of jam session songs, but most of the songs in this book are unfamiliar to me...hence my B-Side title. What REALLY makes this book bad is its binding! It is thick and has a bunch of songs, but the solid plastic binding on the side (not the fingers that go through the pages, but a side view) is so wide that the book doesn't bend backward worth a darn. I though I could have it removed and redone with a spiral, but the songs and text goes right to the binding edge of the paper...no room to get this rebound. Also, after a couple of page turns, the binding gets bunched up...yuck. Before you buy this book make sure you have these (in no particular order, and read reviews for personal taste): "Bluegrass Fakebook 150 All Time Favorites" by Bert Casey, "Bluegrass Songbook" by Peter Wernick, "Bluegrass Guitar" by Happy Traum, "Parking Lot Picker's Songbook" by Dix Bruce (get the Guitar edition, it comes with 2 CD's). And always opt for spiral bound editions (unless you can hold the pages with your feet ;-)

S*** ton of bluegrass tunes.. Chew on some straw and get down. Laid out in a very comprehensive manner as are all The Real books. A must have for the bluegrass/country/blues junky

This is a great addition to the Bluegrass Fakebook -- between the two books there is some crossover in the tunes that are included but not very much so between the two books you end up with a nice large library of bluegrass songs. This book is laid out just like all the other Hal Leonard "Real Books," using the same "handwritten" music font and printed so that there are no page turns in the middle of songs. And it comes comb-bound so you can start using it right away and have it lay flat on your music stand.

I bought all three jazz Real Books. The material is fine, but Hal Leonard Publishing apparently hasn't heard of coil binding and doesn't know or care about the practicality of it. The books fall apart after a small amount of actual use. If Hal can't figure out coil binding, then he ought to sell the product as an unbound shrink-wrapped stack of paper so we can get it bound the professional way.

Basically a good song book. Look elsewhere for lessons or tips. Many songs are new to me, would be helpful if as CD came with it so I could hear the music played correctly.

saw this at the library and it look good. ordered it, received it in a couple days and was trying to pick some tunes that evening.
lead lines and chords like all the real books with most of all the lyrics. a good deal.
