How to Write a Song – The “No BS” Songwriter’s Bible

Are You Ready to Learn the Secret Fast Track to How to Write a Song?

Hey, I’m the Music Guy and I’ve been writing, recording, and performing songs as the chief or sole songwriting for 5 different bands for over 10 years now. I’ve now taken that experience and created the definitive system for how to write a song. Check out a song from one of my latest projects here:

Here’s a picture of me (on the left) with part of my previous band “The Great Escape” shortly after we performed on the Merriweather Post Pavilian/Washington, DC date of the 2008 Warped Tour after winning the online “Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands” to earn a spot on the tour:

The one thing which I pride myself on knowing how to do better than anything else is how to write a great song. Nothing gives me a sense of satisfaction as the rush I get whenever I write a great hook which I’m really pleased with. I absolutely love writing with other people and teaching other people how to write a song with the techniques which I use on a daily basis.

Is Songwriting Something You Can Teach?

I’ve heard some people say that you can’t teach songwriting. THIS COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! It’s a skill like anything in life; it takes some practice and nurturing to get good at learning how to make a song, but learning through the correct method can put you on the fast track to success.

Enter “How to Write a Song – The ‘No BS’ Songwriter’s Biblehow to write a song“…I’ve read a few books on the topic of songwriting but never read any tangible methods which go into the depth which yours does…”

Alan, 29 – Perth, West Australia     

How to Write a Song – The ‘No BS’ Songwriter’s Bible” is the product of my more than 10 years of songwriting experience and a full year of writing the digital book itself.

Why “The ‘No BS’ Songwriter’s Bible” as a title? After I finished writing the instantly downloadable eBook and was still deciding on a title, I thought I should check out some other resources on songwriting to see if there was anything important I had left out.

What I found was A LOT of fluff, a lot of repetition, and a lot of information about songwriting which was really just disguised common sense “tips” and things which the average person already knows.

I called it “The ‘No BS’ Songwriter’s Bible” because it’s the best title to describe what the book is all about: cutting through the coddling and the BS and getting right to teaching you what you need to know to write great hooks and songs.

I didn’t want to make this book a long read for the sake of being a long read; I worked hard to get this down to just the essentials – just over 100 pages which will teach you everything you need to know and nothing you don’t about songwriting.

This is all done in a linear path designed to take you from writing your first ideas to refining them into huge ear pleasing hooks and hits!

“…for the songwriter in all of us who just needs a bit of encouragement…”

I don’t want there to be any surprises about this book, so let me give you a member’s only look at the table of contents to see exactly what is covered in this book by revealing the table of contents here with a rundown of each chapter:

Introduction – To open things up I give you a little background on me as well as my songwriting process.

Chapter 1 – Here we go over the basic terminology and concepts which you should know when songwriting and which I’ll use in the rest of the book.

Chapter 2 – In this chapter I offer an incredibly effective songwriting method which is especially ideal for beginners.

Chapter 3 – Here we tackle all things lyrics; what makes for a great lyric, how to write them, some of the most popular themes to draw from when writing your lyrics, and much more.

Chapter 4 – The next 3 chapters are where I cover my own personal and never before revealed secrets for writing great songs in order from start to finish. Chapter 4 is all about tricks which I use to stimulate song ideas from out of nothing; a VERY important chapter even for the most seasoned of songwriters.

Chapter 5 – Chapter 5 tackles a number of things you can do to bolster, improve, and or develop new and existing song ideas using “devices” used in popular music all of the time but which have never been picked apart and put under the microscope like this.

Chapter 6 – Writer’s block happens just as easily in songwriting as it does in any other kind of writing. This chapter will break through the wall with a myriad of effective methods.

Chapter 7 – This chapter is all about the one thing which people first take notice of in virtually any form of popular music – the hook. Write that perfect hook and all of your problems are solved, and in this chapter I teach you how to do just that.

Chapter 8 – Chapter 8 covers everything you need to know about recording your music. Whether you want to create professional sounding recordings of your music at home and on a budget or are interested in tracking down a producer and working with him or her, I cover both in full in this chapter as I’ve had a great deal of experience when it comes to recording music. I have a studio in my own home so I know quite a bit about recording my own music myself, but I’ve also worked with a number of producers, some of whom have produced platinum selling records.

Glossary – The glossary recaps the major terms covered throughout the book and in songwriting in general.

Conclusion – In the final few pages I wrap things up and give you a firsthand look at the progression of songwriting as I reveal the first song which I ever wrote 10 years ago and contrast it with a more recent song so that you can see the progression over the course of a few years.

“… I especially love the “anticipation” and “garbage to gold” methods. You’ve even got me picking out each of the devices in every song I hear now, as well lol.”

Where to start, the anticipation method, the 30 second sample, turning music into vocals and switching around parts; everything you’ve covered here is completely refreshing to me. I’ve bought another book on songwriting in the past, and it was covering things which I or anybody else should be able to figure out on their own without a book needing to tell me. Not to ramble but I’m now using your techniques to write ideas which I’m very happy with, much much more so than anything else I’ve written before. I’d like to send you something if and when I get a chance to record it. Who knows, maybe you’ll share it with your readers. In summary, thank you so much for writing and sharing this book!
