"Fake Books" are collections of songs in simplified form which can allow a musician to play a reasonable version, even without having played it before -- they might be used by pros who work at weddings, piano bars, etc. The musician's version of a DJs record collection.

There is also a style of music instruction or reference book designed to fit into the neck area of a guitar or banjo case.

Combined separate long exposures of the case and guitar, removing my hand partway through the exposure to achieve the ghosting effect -- liked it better than a "solid" hand.

After adding type I saved a temporary version, then pasted it back into the case to make the final composite.

An essential addition to your fake book collection, "The Guitar Case" will allow you to play tunes you never thought were possible, like "New York Taxi Horn," "Default iPhone Ringtone," and "Rain on a Tin Roof."

Oh, too me a bit to see this is the photo in a photo type effect. That is extremely distracting here.
