Secrets You Should Know About Writing Great Songs or How to Fish Downstream from Bob Dylan!
Been a while since I lived up to the name of my blog but we are the rocknroller babies for a reason. When I met my husband he wasn’t a teacher wearing a shirt and tie (which is why I never iron them for him – false representation and all that) but a scruffy boy in a band! He still plays and sings and writes wonderful songs which the children love and though he may not make our millions by becoming a world famous performer I’ve still high hopes that one day his songs might just do it because they’re ace!
Florence too has started writing her won songs and like a chip off the old block she just has a knack for it. What a skill huh, to be able to write music and lyrics well. I’m constantly in awe of both of them whenever thety write something new!
If you’ve ever wanted to write a song but don’t know where to start then perhaps picking up a copy of Secrets You Should Know About Writing Great Songs or How to Fish Downstream from Bob Dylan is the book you should be picking up from Amazon. It’s certainly a great Christmas present for any budding song writers as was out in paperback on September the 7th.
Written by experienced song writer and teacher Roddy Matthews and published by Bite-Sized Lifestyle Books at £5.99 it’s a great little stocking filler for anyone interested or engaged in writing songs, from novices right through to music graduates. Written in direct, non-technical language and using familiar examples, it shows you how to create melodies, lyrics and song sections, and how to build them into effective and appealing songs. It especially gives valuable tips and insights to help you through your creative process.
Roddy says: To write great songs you must learn how structural patterns hold a listener’s attention, then draw on your personal roots and individual tastes to express common experiences in fresh and entertaining ways.
