From: John Robert Brumby
Dear Future Songwriter,
If you have ever tried writing a song, you may be aware of how difficult it can be. You may also not be aware of some very major mistakes that you are making.
Let me help you, as I am a song writing expert.
Writing a song is a talent in which few people possess, yet given the right strategies that I am going to share with you, soon your song writing prowess will be very evident. There is a core set of skills that anyone that is attempting to write a song, MUST POSSESS.
Songs evoke feelings like love, hate, anger, happiness, grief, contentment, remembered times, and much, much more. Just think of how when you hear a particular song, it brings you to a different time and place in your life. Songs have a way of embedding themselves right to our very core. If you write a powerful song, it can live on long after we have all gone. There is hardly any better way of expressing the widest range of emotions while getting the point across in the tonality of not only the singer, but the words themselves.
When we listen to music, our senses and emotions are changed through the mood and feeling of the music. Different people will have different experiences with the same music because of how the song relates to each person in its own unique way.
Writing a song is a very creative process. This process can be learned. Many people think that you have to be gifted to be a good songwriter, but in reality, good song writers all use very similar processes to arrive at a finished song. In our guide, you will learn what these processes are. You will learn what all the best song writers in the world do to get the creative flow going. Once you learn these skills, you will be able to write songs at will.
Writing a song is a process which involves preparation, knowledge, and the ability to unlock what is already inherently inside of each and every one of us.
It is possible to write a song with no knowledge or pre-thought. However, a majority of the time, the end result will be a futile attempt and result in a low quality song without proper execution of some very fundamental song writing skills which are very easy to learn. START EDITING FROM HERE DOWN……
If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a song, but stopped because you’ve never written a song in your life before, and can’t shake the feeling that it just might be something you’d be good at – then this book is for you.
If you’ve ever tried your hand at writing a song before, and nothing’s turned out the way you hoped – then this book is for you.
If you’ve ever written songs that you’re happy with, but can’t expand your creative horizons – then this book is for you.
If you’re ever found yourself stuck in the arid desert of writer’s block, then this book is for you. If you’re a prolific songwriter with racks of demo tapes and a thirst for marketing knowledge, then this book is for you, too!
This book is for everyone who wants to learn more about the art of writing a song.
I’ve written this book to cater for all levels of experience: for people who know absolutely nothing about writing a song, but also for those who want more details about the craft and the industry too.
This book is not aiming to teach you everything there is to know about writing a song, because that would be impossible. A great deal of what makes somebody good at this business is experience: you can read everything in the world about the technicalities of how to write a good song, but you won’t really understand it until you get out there and do it for yourself.
I’ve written this book with the intention of giving you a boost into the world of songwriting through instructing you in the major aspects of the industry. So I’ve tried to include real meat-and-potatoes stuff (like how to actually write the songs, and where to get inspiration from) as well as the more technical, insider’s tips like how to market yourself successfully, where to turn for more information, and who you need to know in the music industry.
When I decided to write a book on songwriting, it was purely because I’m sick of all the encyclopedia-style textbooks on the subject. Personally speaking, I don’t think it really gels with the industry or with what you’re trying to do. I think that songwriting is more about having fun than memorizing detailed instructions and following them to the letter – and it’s definitely not about wading through weighty tomes of cross-referenced, super-detailed information.
Like any new skill, songwriting takes practice. I’m not saying that polishing yourself up to professional standards isn’t going to take some effort. And without trying to put you off or anything, I’ve gotta say that it’ll maybe take a bit more practice than you realize right now.
Don’t read too much into this – I don’t want to scare you off. I’m just trying to remind you to keep your expectations reasonable.
Although it’s not totally outside the bounds of reality to expect to be able to read a few sections of this book and then get signed by a major label off your first song, just bear in mind that anything worth having (like a successful career in songwriting) generally takes some work.
It would probably be more realistic to look at this way: that, if this is something you’re serious about being successful at, it’s going to take some hard work and – above all – some persistence before you start seeing the kind of results that will satisfy you on a personal level, get your career in songwriting moving right along, and bring in some serious cash.
All of these things are totally achievable and if you want to be a songwriter, then you’re at the right place.
I’m going to teach you everything you need to know about writing a song – from the very basics right through to the “complicated” stuff (I’ve put the word ‘complicated’ into inverted commas because, really, even the “complicated” stuff is still a relative cake-walk!)
Everything you need to know about becoming a professional songwriter is contained within this book.
So really, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve got a good ear for music, an unshakeable sense of rhythm, a way with words and lyrics, or just the feeling that you might be good at this: by the time you’ve finished reading the sections of this book that apply to you, you’ll be ready to start making money off your songwriting ideas.
We’re going to look at the creative and the business side of things: from the actual how-to-get-a-good-idea right through to marketing your stuff to industry insiders.
Discover how songwriting can earn you a living. I give you a run down of the songwriting process and all the things you’ll be involved in as a professional songwriter from writing music and lyrics to composing and marketing.
You’ll learn what is actually in a song in my detailed chapter on “The Basics and Comploxities of Structure”
The one fatal mistake that you cannot afford to make when including rhyme in your songs.
Find out all the nitty-gritty secrets that you definitely WILL need to write songs that are successful, marketable, saleable, and charttopping… all the things you want your songs to be!
Discover the four absolute most-important traits and abilities of a successful songwriter.
Lyrics in DETAIL. You’re going to learn all about lyrical (word-based) tools that you can place conveniently throughout your song to jazz it up and make it sound really polished and smooth.
And that’s not all!
Not by a long shot.
You’ll also learn…
One thing that most successful songwriters plan out carefully BEFORE writing any lyrics to their song. This secret is about the closest thing you can get to a guarantee that the song itself is going to make you – and other listeners – sit up and take notice before you’ve actually written the song.
Everything you need to know about Rhyme. There’s just something eminently satisfying about listening to a song with a polished rhyme – it sounds finished. Writing uncliched rhymes isn’t easy to do, and it tends to be an acquired skill, rather than something you’re born with. But don’t fret… I’m going to break it all down for you.
It’s all too easy to forget the essence of a good idea: that particular rhyming sequence, snatch of a lyric, or just the plain guts of the inspiration itself. I show you how to capture your creative ideas so that they don’t get lost!
Stuck for song ideas? I show you where to find them! You’ll soon be capturing great stories and insights to tell in your lyrics, melodies and rhythm.
HOW TO BE A SELF-CONFIDENT SONGWRITER. Seriously, you’ll never be able to write anything if you can’t even put pen to paper without editing it – without rereading it, analyzing it for flaws, assessing it critically. I show you silence your inner critic and skyrocket your confidence in your own songwriting ability!
You’ll gain step-by-step information on how to market your songs.
Uncover my essential tips to creating the melodies themselves… even if you don’t know how to play a musical instrument!
Networking: How to do it and why you should
It’s easy to spend too much money on a demo tape. Studio time is very expensive, and some people make the mistake of investing every last cent they have into a super-high quality demo tape. That’s why you need to follow my tips for managing your budget when cutting a demo.
Entertainment attorneys and you – What you need to know.
All about how to collaborate and write songs with someone else. Discover how to find them and how to work together so that you make the old saying ‘two heads are better than one’ a true statement.
With 100s of songs being written and submitted to record companies around the world every day, it’s absolutely essential that you make your song stand out. That’s why I’ve dedicated and entire chapter to “Making Your Songs Memorable”.
Find out how to find your own style. When you’re marketing your songs, you’ll be expected to know what category of music your songs fall under. This will enable you to market your music to the people who are looking for that kind of music – the publishers, performing artists, and record companies that are most likely to be interested in what you have to offer.
Powerful advice on how to use melody to add strength and meaning to your songs.
I’m serious when I say that you won’t find any more powerful book, course, or advice around on how to write and sell your songs. Of course I can’t apply the advice for you, but I am giving you the advice you need to MAXIMIZE your chances of songwriting success.
However, please be warned… Given the sheer quantity of valuable material that I’ve packed into this brand-new version of Singorama, and given that I need to recoup my investment of time and resources, I want you to know that I *do* expect to raise the price shortly, once my launch celebration is complete, to the updated price of $99.95. So if you come back after 2 days, and the special launch price and bonus package is gone, there’s nothing I can do…
Of course, to sweeten the deal even MORE,
I’m also going to throw in….
THREE Amazing Super Bonuses (a $94 value)
– yours to keep, no matter what you decide!
I want to make sure you have everything you need to immediately guarantee that you maximize your singing potential.
So if you act today, as part of my special launch celebration, I’ve decided to give anyone who purchases
Writing A Song: The Ultimate Guide To Writing And Selling Your Songs
FULL ACCESS to the following THREE Super Bonuses…
One thing many song writers have at their disposal is a rhyming dictionary. These are fantastic, but the problem is: it takes a long time to read through and find the words you are looking for each time.
That’s why Rhyme Master Pro is a fantastic alternative. All you need to do is type in a word, and Rhyme Master Pro will spit out a list of other words that rhyme with it. What a fantastic tool to prevent song writers block!
(currently available for PC only)
