Hello to all!
I’m thrilled to announce my latest book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Art of Songwriting will be available at bookstores everywhere as of tomorrow, August 2!
This is a new experience for me as it’s the first book I’ve co-written, working with Nashville songwriter, Casey Kelly. As you can read in his bio on Amazon, Casey is the writer of several Grammy-nominated songs,Â and hisÂ songwriting catalogueÂ includesÂ Kenny Rogers & Dottie West’s “Anyone Who Isn’t Me Tonight,” Tanya Tucker’s “Soon” and George Strait’s country music standard, “The Cowboy Rides Away.”Â In addition to his songwriting, Casey works as a session player and singer and performs in clubs and concerts for audiences throughout the US and Europe.Â A frequent mentor, panelist and workshop contributor, Casey is a member of ASCAP, NSAI and he is currently a Songwriters
Guild of America Board of Councilors member, and Vice President.
This is also a new experience in that this book is the first of mine that’s available forÂ Kindle and other online electronic book devices. I don’t think that was even possible for my first book, and that came out just five years ago!
Anway, there’s a lot here that hopefully you’ll like and enjoy. And, if it’s not too much to ask, should you decide to order one through Amazon, be sure to use the Guitar Noise affiliate link. And, as always, don’t hesitate to either post a note here or drop me an email directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) with whatever questions you might have.
