Shortcuts to Hit Songwriting

Post by jlizerbram » Fri Dec 26, 2008 8:33 am

I ordered this book, standard shipping, got it next day...go figure! Started going through the book - extremely well organized and fun to read! I look forward to picking it up each time, and I keep it next to me in my home studio - such a great songwriter's reference. The http://www.robinfrederick.com website rocks too! Thanks Michael Laskow and Robin Frederick for partnering up and giving us a great resource.Jeff LizerbramSan Diego, CA

Shortcuts to hit songwriting? Is that where you hire someone else to write it?

Really, it's shorter, and you make way more money. Really!Nice to see your name again Horace. Missing ya!

OK, to get back to what this thread was REALLY about...Robin's book KICKS ASS!!! I have easily read 10-15 books this year about songwriting and the music biz, and this is very possibly my MOST favorite of all of them.She has the (unusual) ability to write her book/chapters to make them sound JUST like her live seminars sound...fast, energetic, cut to the chase. It is a GREAT book, and I'm already on my third time of reading through it.Worth every dime spent, ten times over.

I am 50, so I'm not saying anything BAD about being 50 yrs old. And my guess is that Robin is also probably near 50, if not already a few years older than me.But the Brobec twins were walking around the Rally, looking like they needed in home hospice care. John Braheny, God love him, is getting up there... Sheila Davis, to my knowledge, doesn't even DO seminars anymore (and quite frankly, her books don't hold up well or read like they have anything to do with the current market).We NEEDED a fresh voice. And Robin is it. I will bet money on your loving the info she has to share, and especially the way she shares it.Let me know.
