How to Write a Song: Beginner's Guide to Writing a Song in 60 Minutes or Less

Summary

Singing is an amazing accomplishment that almost everyone in the world wants to achieve. However, only a few people are actually lucky enough to successfully write a song, let alone sing it. Many people think that coming up with lyrics to a song is the hardest job in the world, as it requires a high level of creativity that only poets and master musicians can conjure. I am here to tell you that this is just a stereotype and a misconception. Just take a look at the mainstream musical hits, for starters! The book has purposefully been designed for those who want to learn how to write a song, but don't know where to start. It packs everything there is to know about writing a great song, from its structure to its thought process. But the book also doesn't forget about your personal business and hectic schedule, especially if you're a person who's planning on doing this part-time. I've described a really simple way to write a song, all in an hour, with the help of simple and refined techniques. Quite often, people tend to get bogged down in the useless details of writing a song, which not only slow the entire process down but also become a reason to lose interest in the whole process. Lucky for you, I've skipped all those boring essentials and have kept everything to the point, so you can easily and instantly apply the knowledge you learn from the book into your practical life. After you've completed the book, I'm sure you'll feel as if a whole new side of your mind has opened up, and you'll find it much easier to convert natural elements in your life to lines to a song. You'll start feeling alive and after writing two or three songs, you'll get that singer-like personality everyone strives for. Most importantly, you'll be able to give your thoughts a new meaning and convert them into a song in less than an hour, and even brag about it!
