Songwriting Book?


Recommended Posts

  • Noob

Hey everyone!

Great to "meet" you all! I'm new to this whole forum and site AND songwriting! I know I can scour the web for days looking up tips and techniques for lyric and songwriting - but I was wondering if you all have any great books that I'd be able to pick up that covers essentially everything?

Thank you for your recommendations!

Welcome to Songstuff! :)

You will find lots of tips in our songwriting articles and of course on our songwriting discussion boards. There are a few books that are useful, but like Tom says, no single one has it all. I'll dig out some links :)

Thanks Tunesmithth! John - That would help out a lot! Been scouring the web for books though - I did stumble upon a book by Molly Leikin called "How to Write a Hit Song" it seems like it grasps the core of what I'm going for from top to bottom, and it's well reviewed on Amazon. Think I'm going to go for it, got nothing to lose! Just need something while I travel to keep my gears turning. Looking forward to other posts! :)

Thanks!

We have a series of songwriting articles by Molly in the Songwriting articles section of our site...That reminds me, I still need to dig out some links for you. I've left a post-it note on my desktop :)

Although this book doesn't really cover recording music it covers every other aspect of songwriting in great detail, I would highly recommend it.
