Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For several years I hosted The Hit Hackers Podcast. We analyzed #1 hit songs to figure out what made them tick. These lessons were reenforced during my travels in Nashville. I co-wrote with some great writers, and I've distilled the most important stuff into this ebook.

This is more of an essay than a book, which works. You'll get through it in a short sitting. The information is concise and valuable. The author covers rhyming, work habits, structure, and several other topics that we (financially)unsuccessful songwriters tend to forget. I have browsed a few texts on songwriting and this distills it to the basics without a great deal of rhetoric and useless information.

Let's face it, no book is going to make you a hit songwriter. If you have the raw talent this can help you develop it to a marketable skill. He also refers you to other books to keep you on the road of developing your lyric writing. If you are a musician looking to refine your lyric writing for a more broad appeal this short read is invaluable.

The link to the example song was dead, I did find it by googling though so no biggie.

I'm very satisfied with Eric's book. He's found success writing country songs, but everything in his book holds true; no matter what genre you write in. It's a short read, and the wording is perfect. He even suggests other reads that will improve your songwriting. Not too many authors willingly do this. If you find impatience reading 100 pg. books, you can get more info in a quarter the time. THIS....is the book to want.
