The Tango Fake Book (2/4 Version) by Mark Arthur Wyman
English | 2006 | ISBN: 9081089617 | 127 pages | PDF | 15 MB
The Tango Fake Book is a book of sheet music containing over one hundred pieces: tangos, milongas, vals, tango nuevo, and tango cancion. Each has lead melody line, often popular counter-melodies and variations, and chord symbols above the staff. Composer and date of composition (if available) too; all are in the most common original keys.
A very broad spectrum of composers and styles are represented. The pieces include selections from among the very first tangos, from before 1900; Guardia vieja tunes; Golden Age tangos; and modern and recent compositions.
This book of sheet music is meant for a la parrilla playing (improvised arrangements); the charts are intentionally clear and simple. All are intended to be quickly readable in a live situation.
And every effort has been made to make these partituras as accurate as possible, so they are also good for study, and for a basis for an original arrangement.
