Shelves: music, non-fiction
An excellent primer on songwriting, with practical tips and insight into every facet and stage of writing a song. The section on music theory was rudimentary, but I think would have been very good for a songwriter who had ideas but didn't know what to do with them. Her notes on overcoming writer's block, survey and analysis of song structures, and ideas on generating songs were great and inspiring. I'm ready to start penning new songs again.
