Songwriting: Apply Proven Methods, Ideas and Exercises to Kickstart or Upgrade Your Songwriting by Tommy Swindali is an interesting book and reaches out to all readers who want to become famous and successful when it comes to writing songs. Writing songs can be complicated and hard, but this book - with its techniques, tips, ideas, and advice - will help in making songwriting fun and make the process smooth. The book will help readers understand the basics, will inspire them, show them how to work with collaborators, and speaks about chords, keys, and progressions, a professional songwriter’s habits, and much, much more which will help readers become great songwriters.

The topic chosen is fresh and unique and the book can be used as a tool by all those who want to write songs on various topics. I like the author’s approach to the topic and he handles it methodically and extensively, making it easy for readers to tap into their creativity and come up with some good lyrics. The book is not only about writing songs, but it also speaks about publishing, rights, royalties, and privacy, and other interesting things related to music. There are a lot of tips, which is good when it comes to experimenting with different genres of songwriting, and makes it much easier for all those who want to try their hand at it. For those who are already into songwriting, the tips will help them become prolific songwriters, and for those who have no musical knowledge the suggestions will help them on the path to writing songs.
