This fake book has all of your favorite hymns in the key of "C", with easy-to-read large music notation, simplified chords and includes all of the verses for sing along. It is perfect for beginners and has a binding that will lay flat on the music stand. All the well-known verses (including multiple) are included under the notes. Finally, unlike other fakebooks that try to crowd several songs together in one page, or split them between pages, this book fits one song per page with large readable type.

I love this Easy Hymn Fake Book and the Easy Gospel Fake Book both. Wish I'd have had some like it many years ago! They make playing so much easier. Piano or guitar! I even bought some extra for my new chord-style piano students. The large bold print is easy for my old eyes to read. I'm also impressed by the great chord selections and placements, just how my ear likes to hear the old songs of the Lord.

I knew there had to be an easier way to play piano. I'll never be a concert pianist, but I am able to enjoy playing for my own enjoyment. With the vocal training I have had, and an explanation of chords, I am able to play the old hymns I grew up with. This is easy and fun.

Your mother will love you if you play this quietly in the background. If you know how to read the melody and can learn to play chord, this one is for you. It is so easy if you do not know (like me) how to read all those notes on the left hand.

Oh my word, this book is great! Where was it when I was learning to play growing up? Hymns list several verses with an easy melody on the treble clef with chording above. Notes and words are enlarged...my kids had a hard time using a regular book after how large and clear this one is. I pencil in fingering in for those who need it. Chord notes are listed in the back. I've showed this to three other piano teachers/mothers of students, and two are buying it. Good variety of songs with just I, IV & V chords as well as other songs with additional chords to fill out. On my small piano, it lays open nicely without needing props. If you have a digital piano with a wimpy book holder, it may not stay as it is a tall substantial book. I enjoy playing out of it myself as do my elementary boys.

I just recieved this book yesterday and it seems like it is just what I have been looking for. If a person is limited in what they can play but wants to strum up some good old fashion Hymns, this is the book to have.

It was everything that I had hoped for! My wife is the recently (three years) self taught keyboard genius, I mean it!
Plays well and self taught music notation reader! Rather a great accomplishment for an older woman! But, goes to show that an unfulfilled childhood ambition and a burning desire can indeed work wonders! The book of course was for her and greatly enjoyed along with the other (much used) pile of Hal Leonard Fake books! This one works also. The usual good delivery service and NO complaints! A great addition to one's, or there's collection!

There are a lot of hymns here, simply arranged and easy to play if you know your chords in the key of C.

Our church has been without a pianist or any other accompanist for two years. I have been trying to get good enough at piano to play sometimes, and this book should allow me to do that.

If you have a semi-decent keyboard, the fact that all the songs are arranged in C shouldn't be a problem, because your keyboard probably has the option to automatically transpose as you play. This is like putting a capo on a guitar. You can play in other keys while still using the chord fingerlings you are used to.
