You're no idiot of course. You know there's more to a song than a steady beat and a rhyming scheme. Well-written pieces of music communicate the ideas and emotions of the artist to listeners. Don't fret about hitting the low notes! This book will guide you through the scales of developing lyrics and melodies that express your thoughts - and help you strike the right chords to attract singers and publishers into buying your songs. In this revised and expanded edition, you get:

    •  The elements of a song: chords, rhythms, repetition, hooks, and more.
    •  Tips for writing dynamic lyrics from verse to chorus
    •  Expert hints for writing specific musical genres from blues, country, rock, Latin, and rap to film and theater themes
    •  Information on copyrighting your songs and reaping the royalties you deserve
