The first 3 "steps" are great.
Very good tips and great inside information on the "art of songwriting" but steps 4 through 6 are worthless unless you live in Nashville so...

If you are looking for a excellent book, for writing a melody, or lyrics, this book is a must read. There is also an expanded version, that is what I am currently reading. It contains great tips for writing songs and lyrics in 3 steps. Out of the 3 books on this subject I bought this is by far the best. I can highley reccomend this book.;
