Thanks for your answer. I play piano using my Fatar sl 880 and 
LinuxSampler with that nice piano sample from there website.

Yes I can read sheets, but my bass clef knowledge is not really developed.

I have search for some second hand Beatles songbooks (for piano), I 
gonna buy one of them...

About the Real book for Jazz, can you download it somewhere?

I'm starting to learn Lilypond...
