Karl Coryat/Nicholas Dobson : The Frustrated Songwriter's Handbook Paperback


"The Frustrated Songwriter's Handbook" lays out a concrete method, called Immersion Composition, for any songwriting musician/composer who experiences creative block.

The method forces a musician to actively engage his/her creativity by writing as much music as possible in a set time period.

In doing so, the reader will find that those elusive moments of inspiration can actually be summoned on command, resulting in creative productivity and fulfillment the reader never dreamed possible.

The book also lays out the framework for forming a group of like-minded songwriters (a "lodge"), presents dozens of tips and games for making the most out of an Immersion Composition session, and shows how to sort through the results of a session and expand/revise the best ideas into finished, polished songs.
