Hey everyone!
Wow, there are so many amazing songwriters in here! I'm pretty new to songwriting/lyric writing and was wondering if anyone out there would know of any great books that would help me progress in my songwriting career? I'm a huge fan of Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood if that helps? Just need a book that would help me have a broader understanding of songwriting and creating hit songs. If you come across anything let me know, and I'll do the same!

Thanks!

The Complete Idiot's guide to the art of songwriting, co-written by our very own David Hodge - yes, the same David Hodge who's currently setting the assignments/topics in the Sunday Songwriters Group forum. Drop in there, MelodyMaker... all new writers are welcome, and encouraged.

:D :D :D
