For pedal harp only.
Fake Books, or Lead Sheets, are music books that include the melody line, lyrics and chord symbols, without accompaniment. You make your own arrangements using the melody and the chords.
The two volumes of Blazing Pedals are a guide for harpists learning the harmony necessary to play from fake books or lead sheets. They provide a systematic approach to identifying diatonic intervals occurring automatically on the harp.
Volume 2 is subtitled: How to play from a "Fake Book" on the pedal harp. It includes a chord study review in lead sheet notation, the use of "melodic" seventh chords, full chord voicings in six keys, passing tones and neighboring notes, the stride bass accompaniment, other accompaniment patterns, an original tune and seven possible treatments fully notated.
