Righting Wrongs In Writing Songs

Righting Wrongs in Writing Songs is a tool a musician needs as much as a proper guitar - a teaching tool, and a source of inspiration. This musical book is aimed towards both aspiring and practicing songwriters, focusing on key approaches to writing songs, with special attention given to common issues and obstacles musicians face. Everything is covered to give you the right feel of where to take your music to - melody, chord structures, rhythm, and lyrics - then you have the freedom to chose the musical path that fits you best.

Additionally, the book also comes with explanations of general approaches and evaluative techniques used in the songwriting domain. Lessons are given using an informal tone, with fresh suggestions and exercises crafted through the author's experience in teaching songwriting at college level. Each chapter focuses on a specific songwriting problem and offers exercises to help you find your way over the obstacles. Specific topics include writing approach, structure of songs, purpose, melodic construction, word arrangement, meaning and design, chords, as well as some basic music theory.
