Chuck Sher - The New Real Book Volume 2
Chuck Sher The New Real Book Volume 2 PDF (Key of C). More great tunes in the world-class New Real Book format. Along with many standard tunes, Volume 2 features over a dozen each of the best tunes by Chick Corea, John Coltrane and Horace Silver. Like all Sher Music fake books, it features composer-approved transcriptions, easy-to-read calligraphy, and many extras (sample bass lines, chord voicings, drum appendix, etc.) not found in conventional fake books.
This book is more "Adventurous' and songs are more complete than with other "Fake" books.
This volume of the new real book is another must-have. It combines a good mix of latin, fusion & some unexpected gems of standards. The calligraphy is excellent and the forms of the tunes are always designed to use the least number of pages per tune - unlike "manufactured" sheet music!
If you're looking for a fake book that's willing to "help you out" and you don't find that a distractor, definitely, yes ! If you're a student and don't know a lot of tunes, definitely, yes ! It has a great selection of tunes that will help you expand your song repertoire, and also that's nice and cleanly written. A book such as this is a great investment... its not something you get and hide away under the bench... its something that you'll probably pack alongside your instrument every time you go to a gig because people WILL be calling tunes from it.
