Synopses & Reviews
Which do you write first, the music or the lyrics? How can you give a song a country sound? How can you make your lyrics "sing?" What is the simplest way to protect a copyright? Song Writing answers these and other questions on the art of musical composition. Musical examples throughout.
A complete guide to the craft.
An invaluable sourcebook covering finding a song concept, choosing a form, writing lyrics, rhyming, constructing a melody, adding harmony, selecting rhythm, and much more. Today's aspiring writers are fortunate indeed to have such a splendid guide. - Dory Previn
