Format: Books | Instrumental Reference
Gene Lees' bestseller for songwriters has been revised! In addition to providing fascinating, creative and clear techniques for writing lyrics, this edition now includes: a new foreword by renowned songwriters Alan and Marilyn Bergman; a new chapter called "Tattered Standards," which outlines the lack of literacy in certain modern songs and shows you how to avoid it; a new chapter called "The Words You Choose," which examines why words from some language families are subconciously more appealing than those from others; and much more! Invaluable to the beginner, this book will also prove beneficial to professionals, poets, linguists and teachers.
