A songwriter's bible! This book is the real thing! This book is gold!
on November 2, 2015
I am very inspired to turn my poetry into songs, but I lack some of the basic song-crafting skills. I read a number of books with great titles but they were 99% fluff! I found Robin Frederick's "LEARN HOW TO WRITE A SONG: a step-by-step guide," on her website, robinfrederick.com, and it was FANTASTIC! I learned more on that website than I had from any of the books I had read! I advise you to visit her website, check out her "WRITE A SONG" guide and see for yourself. If you like what you see, you will want to have this book in your hands! BTW: You may not think your goal is to write a HIT, but what is a HIT? A HIT is a song that appeals to a lot of people. Who among us doesn't want to write songs that are appealing to others? Every "shortcut" in the book (except #1) has a "DO IT NOW" exercise associated with it to get you practicing the craft of songwriting immediately! If you want to be a songwriter (or a better songwriter) this is your book! I love it!
