Waste of Time

This offered nothing more than a few mantras and basic review of chord progression. Weak.

Short but decent

I enjoyed have the book was structured. But I do wish it was longer with more examples. I would've liked some more breakdowns of actual popular songs and exercises to perform other than just a harmony and a simple poem. Would say it would be worth $1.50.

Simple easy to understand and very educational.

Where does Songwriting: Powerful Melody, Lyric and Composing Skills to Help You Craft a Hit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Ive read many music industry text this is the first Ive listened to,which I found very helpful. This book is very good and can sit amongest the great songwriting text that I would of been told to read while studying music at uni.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a very clear short text outlineing the steps needed to develop a song and a songwriteing habit. As a songwriter myself and teacher of the craft I very much appraciate how the autor has made this text so short and sweet.
