The BEST book on songwriting! 17. Dezember 2008
Von Bethany Rubin (Bickenhall music) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read a lot of songwriting books and I learned more in this one than all the other ones combined. The author has a knack for explaining things really clearly, and she breaks down the craft of songwriting into digestible "shortcuts." What really sets this songwriting book apart are the "Do it Now" exercises at the end of each section, where you get to try a real hands-on application of what you just read. It's a fun read too...the author manages to be entertaining and funny while teaching you everything you need to know to write a hit song. If you're a songwriter or want to be one, this is a must-read!

Ignores pertinent reality 2. Juli 2010
Von J. C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't have a huge problem with this book if it's useful to you and you have some fun playing with it. The real problem I have with it is that it sweeps under the rug the realities of the current state of the major labels and radio. Both are dying industries that are on life support because they've long ignored the needs and desires of their audience. They've evolved from being businesses built by music people for music fans into corporations run by accountants and lawyers for stockholders, where the "product" is treated no differently than mass-produced widgets.

Books like this are all about pleasing the accountants and lawyers who pay off radio conglomerates to play whatever they're peddling this minute, and not pleasing the real audience who hungers for quality music of the kind they're not getting from the rusty dinosaurs who run the traditional music business. You have other options now. If you write great songs and you can get them in front of audiences, no matter how small you start out, you can make a living in music without ever getting on the radio. Thousands of people are doing it. Only a few are doing it the old-fashioned, traditional way that's being described in this book and other books like it. And if country or pre-adolescent pop isn't your genre, your chances of being a "hit" songwriter with a sustainable career in the traditional music business is worse than your chance of being hit by lightning.

I'm not here to rain on anyone's dream. Just the opposite. I'm telling you there are actually more ways to make a living writing music now than there were when the corporate gatekeepers held all the cards. If you're reading this book to "get rich" in songwriting, you're barking up the wrong tree. Concentrate on writing great songs, not "hit" songs. Do something you can be proud of AND that pays the bills, not spinning your wheels and shortening your career by rewriting the latest Ke$ha song that will be irrelevant 5 minutes from now. Above all, write for people who love music and want to hear great songs and get those songs out to any audience you can find. If your songs are truly special, that audience will grow and find you. That's the way all of the greats have done it, and still do, not by pandering to the lowest common denominator on the radio.

Read this book for the tips and the exercises, and keep in mind that you can succeed in the new reality, but not by chasing "hits" in a world that doesn't exist anymore.

A Great Starting Point For Me 27. August 2010
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
So before I write a review, a little about me, because whenever you read a review for an music product, whether a $5,000 Gibson guitar, or a $20 sustain pedal for a keyboard, you need to know your source. I've been playing guitar for a long time, but not seriously (currently in my late 20s). I've written my own songs, but for fun. I can play lots of chords, but can't play a solo or scale to save my soul. I know a bit about music theory, but can't site read or anything fancy.

Good Points:
* Book is concise.
* Easy read for beginners.
* Requires no knowledge of music theory.
* Uses examples of contemporary songs across multiple genres for examples of good songwriting.
* Provides only the most the basic theory necessary to write songs, so as not to intimidate rookie songwriters.

Weak Points:
- Can be repetitive (although for some, this can actually be a good thing, because it is purposeful repetition)
- Needs a chapter that breaks down the song structure, lyrics and melodies endemic to individual genres
- It could do a better job for those with knowledge of intermediate music theory. Perhaps a sequel? ;)

Overall, I would say the book is a must read for someone just getting their feet into the world of songwriting. If you think you have some innate talent for writing melodies, lyrics, chord progression or entire songs, then as you flip through the pages of this book it will seem to tie together thoughts and elements that you had some ethereal grasp of, but never quite codified in your mind.

Along those same lines, the book will also help you begin to think critically about the music to which you are currently listening. You will be to recognize the musical structures that make the hits what they are and hopefully figure out how to incorporate them into your own work.

The three core chapters of this six chapter read focus on song structure, lyrics and melody. My main goal in reading this book was to learn about writing melodies. The chapter on melody was a total eye opener as to how simple the process was when it was demystified. I thought I didn't need the chapters on song structure and lyrics, and while they didn't teach me anything new, it certainly helped clarify how I think about and listen to songs.

There is one thing to emphasize about the book... The style of songwriting it teaches is Billboard chart-type music. The goal is to write hit songs. A few reviews have been less than kind to this book because they claim it takes the art out of song writing. I could not disagree more. This book treats songwriting like a recipe and allows you to be the chef in a high-end kitchen in a high end restaurant. It does not say you can't write experimental stuff. It just does not focus on experimental stuff. After all, you have to be a master chef before you really go off and make your own experimental recipes.

Finally, critiques of the book. First, it does tend to repeat itself. Although the repetition of the concepts comes with the value of tying it into new ideas you learned from the book since originally reading the more basic concepts, it can be annoying. The reason I gripe about this is because the key marketing point in the title is 126 Shortcuts. It's probably more like 100 if you disqualify the slight repetitions. Also, it would be nice if the author dedicated an entire chapter to the characteristics of each genre. Robin Frederick does such a wonderful job of breaking down the critical elements of lyrics, melody and song structure, that I would LOVE to read how she breaks down those elements as they relate to each specific genre. While she does this sporadically in parts of the book, I really think it would be a great benefit to the readers to see a focus chapter, or series of chapters on this idea.

That's all I got!

Take your songs to the next level! 4. Januar 2009
Von Allen De Somer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Here's a good question: why buy a book on songwriting? I'm willing to bet that most of your answers will fall into one of two categories: 1) you're a beginner who wants to learn where to start, or 2) you are a songwriter who strives to improve their craft. Regardless of your answer, this book is for you! With 126 practical songwriting tips and loads of valuable exercises, Robin Frederick has succeeded in creating a powerful book designed to help you achieve your songwriting goals.

This inspiring and informative book is not meant to stay on the bookshelf. It is an efficient, fun to use tool that is meant to be used-used-used! You'll learn techniques used by successful songwriters, and Robin's writing style is so enthusiastic you'll believe you can do it too. What's more, throughout the book you'll be encouraged to "Do It Now"!

A unique feature of the book is that it can be read in any order. Reading forward, backward, or inside out, you can quickly find something to improve and energize your songwriting skills. This book was truly written and organized with the creative mind in mind.

Because the information is so on-the-mark, it is easy to feel confident that Robin Frederick knows what she's talking about, and this trust factor really helps the learning process. And speaking of easy: I tell my friends this book is so user-friendly you can feel the life jumping off the page! I predict that it'll be hard to resist the urge to write a song after holding this book in your hands for only a few minutes.

I can't speak more highly of this honest, straight-shooting book. If you dive in with real determination, you'll come out soaked with all the ideas, skills, and energy you need to take your songs to the next level.

The Best Songwriting Book I've Read 3. Januar 2009
Von Craig Rogers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is by far the most useful book on songwriting I've ever read. (And, I've read many!) I haven't read the entire book yet, because each time I pick it up, I get inspired to apply a new idea to a couple of my (many) unfinished songs. Each of the 126 chapters is easy to understand, and tells you how to apply the lesson immediately.

In my opinion, this is not the kind of book that you should read through just to try to find a few new songwriting tips. This book is more like having access to a highly successful songwriter to collaborate with and to teach you. The practical examples and exercises I've applied so far have given me new ideas and insights on how hit songs are constructed. More importantly, I'm actually USING them to improve and finish my songs!

Although this book is designed to help you write HIT songs, I believe it can apply to anyone who just wants to write better songs, no matter what your current skill level is, or what your goals as a songwriter are.

I love this book!!!
