Have been introduced to a female piano player.
She can read music but has only ever played for church.
I am looking for the best music book ( best transcriptions) for The Rollng Stones music.
Is there publisher out there who offers faithful piano transcriptions of the Stones music?
What book would you recommend ?

Try one of Alfred's Classic Album Editions.

Thanks very much for that RC.They don't have much of a selection of Stones material but they do have some great other material there.
I trust you mentioned them because you have used some of their product and found them to be good (accurate)?

I may be better off buying 30 sets of sheet music of the songs I want as opposed to buying books with only one or 2 songs I would use.

Which publishing house offers the best transcriptions of single song sheet music from the Rolling Stones catalogue?

I don't know solomio. The reason I recommended that series is that they transcribe parts from the recordings so you can play in a band. Regular sheet music will let you play the song on the piano, but won't sound like the piano part on the record. Both have their place. I may have misunderstood what you need.

No RC I think you have understood. The fact that Alfreds offers the recorded portion of the piano is great. In fact I was worried about our gal playing the vocal melody and the whole 9 yards as opposed to what...say, Ian Stewart was playing, so that's a big plus.
I also noticed thru another site that Alfreds offers what's called a Fake Book.
I have heard of these but never seen one.
Anybody know about Fake Books and what they offer .?

Hey Stratman55 thanks alot.

Well I ordered the Fake Book. From what I researched about them there may or may not be enough musical data in there to get the new to rock music pianist on the road to Rock It 88 heaven but for 20 bucks and 167 Stones songs it is worth a try.

Fake books have the chords, the melody, and the words. That's it.

There is even a book on how to play from a fake book.

Yes I understand that advanced musicians, not having time to sit down and learn songs say in a studio or live jazz setting would be able to build and play the song based solely on the melody notes provided in the fake book.
Thanks RC.
