Free Chord/Lyrics Display Software: Digital Fake Book

Instead of reading full scores, I depend on chord and lyric sheets very much during performance. If you are playing the piano and singing at the same time, I think you will prefer to look at the lyrics with chords above it.

Mike Warren wrote a piece of simple but very useful software called Digital Fake Book.

Main features:

  • Keeps all your songs in one place for easy, one-click selection.
  • Built-in metronome with tempo setting for each song.
  • Audio file linking with A/B section looping helps with learning songs by ear.
  • Text size and sheet divider position is saved with each song enabling the largest text size possible while still fitting the whole song on the screen.
  • Random sets can be created to make practice more varied.
  • Several color schemes (themes) to choose from.

Now I’ve found a reason to trash all my printed lyrics books.

Thanks Mike for making this program and distribute it as a freeware. Download it here.
