I picked this up last weekend, and within a week, the tips I devoured had radically improved my ability to write lyrics that sounded good. I was blown away, surprised, and completely satisfied. I've never experienced results from a Creative How-To book as quickly as this. I absolutely recommend this to any aspiring songwriter.
Wonderful! Easy to follow, great tips. PRICELESS. : )
