Norton Music's Fake Disk #12
For Band-in-a-Box (with compatible Fake Book)

The Best Chord Changes for the Most Popular Songs
by Frank Mantooth

There are no repeated songs in any of these great
Frank Mantooth Professional Chord Substitution Books!!!

Information and Ordering Complete Song List

After doing the first two Frank Mantooth book / disks (#8 and #9), the most frequent request I got in the fake book department was, "Do the rest of the Mantooth books." So here they are.

The fifth in this disk / book series by Frank Mantooth and Norton Music (see Norton Music’s Fake Disk #8). 100 different great standard songs — no repeats — with the same criteria for the chord substitutions:

  1. they sound great
  2. the harmonic succession has a logical flow and is not haphazard or disjunct
  3. they do not clash with the original melody
  4. they enhance the original harmonic motion
  5. the melody will cadence in the original key.

If you love standards, you will like this disk / book. If you love great professional chord changes and substitutions, you will love this disk / book.

There are 200 chord progressions on this disk. They include both the common usage (standard) chord progressions for the 100 tunes in the book, and the professionally altered chord progressions.

Just browse the song list in the right hand column to see the song titles contained in this book/disk!

I also suggested a style for each song from all the styles that were available for Band-in-a-Box when I compiled this disk. It is not necessary to have the book or my styles to enjoy this disk, but your fun will definitely be enhanced if you do.

The Fine Print: This disk is GUARANTEED to work with Band-in-a-Box • In the unlikely event the product is defective or gets corrupted during delivery, it will be replaced. • The melody and lyrics to each song are included in the optional Fake BOOKS. • All copyrights are honored and royalties paid to the copyright holders. • It is important to note that all Norton Music Fake DISKS contain chord progressions only... There are no copyrighted melodies or lyrics on the Fake DISKS. The song titles are used only to identify a particular chord progression. • The song titles used are not the only songs to share any particular chord progression but conservation of space limits me to listing only one title per chord progression. • The degree of compatibility of the songs with the currently available styles for and-In-A-Box varies. • There are no user styles in any of the fake disks either by PG Music (the creators of Band-in-a-Box) or by Norton Music. • As is typical in the software industry, all sales are final.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to buy a new (not used) book as there are many different editions of most fake books. The Norton Music fake disk is compatible only with most recent edition of the fake book. If you buy an used, older edition, all the songs in the disk will not match the songs in the book.
