Nothing but trite generalities

This book is a kindergarten look at songwriting that has no analysis...it really just tells you to listen to music and teach yourself.

A good synopsis of a detailed process.

It gave me a good start. It also provides a lot of paths for me to follow to increase my success. I always used to just write some lyrics but then the process just sort of dropped right there, now I know where to go next to finish a song. Good recommendations given for recording software.
