The Real Book you know and love has now been updated to include backing tracks for 240 songs on one convenient USB flash drive stick! The play-along CDs alone are worth $100 so this is an amazing package price.

The Real Books are the best-selling jazz books of all time. Since the 1970s, musicians have trusted these volumes to get them through every gig, night after night. The problem is that the books were illegally produced and distributed without any reqard to copyright law or royalties paide to the composers who created these musical masterpieces. Hal Leonard is very proud to present the first legitimate and legal editions of these books ever produced. You won't even notice the difference, other than that all of the notorious errors have been fixed.

Not quite what I was looking for

Comments about Hal Leonard The Real Book Volume 1 Book/USB Flash Drive Play-Along Pack:

This is a product aimed at the more advanced jazz instrumentalist who does not sing. I was hoping to see a wider range of difficulty levels in the arrangements. Not many of the arrangements seem appropriate for the beginning or intermediate player who is not already well-versed in jazz guitar. I was disappointed that the book does not include any lyrics, in contrast to other fake books I own. I'll start working on some of the tunes, and will enjoy using the backing track, but will have to put most of the book aside until my knowledge of jazz chords grows.

    Comments about Hal Leonard The Real Book Volume 1 Book/USB Flash Drive Play-Along Pack:

    Along with being a great fake book that covers lots of tunes, the backing tracks give you room to improvise and come back to the melody in a classic jazz way. Top notch recordings, far better than using a metronome. If you like to put form into your playing rather than noodling around with scales, chords and arpeggios, this book is for you. However, this is not for the beginner. You should have a good grasp of rhythm and your instrument's capabilities, although much can be said about stretching yourself by just diving in.
