TRIPLE-A FOR "STUCK" SONGWRITERS! 13 juin 2000
Par middlemoo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Jack Perricone is a great admirer (and practitioner!) of the pop song, and in this book he outlines successful strategies for songwriters to get back IN the groove, or to break OUT of their writing "ruts". Granted, this material may seem rather "heady" at times, and less intuitive than we like to think creativity is, but when you need a jumpstart to get back on track, you'll be glad to have this assortment of options at hand. Although this book is nominally about Melody only, the author includes all other song components as they interact, and provides a fresh perspective and analysis on how and why certain songs reach us and connect with the public. There's as much respect shown toward rock and blues songs as more traditional pop, and a lot of very valuable stuff for writers of ALL styles of songs.

A great book on melody 28 mai 2004
Par Jack - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a good book, well written , and clearly laid out. It offers the reader a methodical approach to writing better melodies by showing you that good melodies are the result of contrast, balance and fluidity. It also covers harmony and its relationship with melody giving examples from popular songs. The book is a refreshing change as it does exactly what it says on the cover; it looks at melody within song writing, and approaches it as a serious subject to be studied and learned. If like myself you get slightly lost every now and then, read the chapter through, go back and read it again, its really worth it because once this stuff begins to sink in, you go away and see what he's talking about as soon as you turn on the radio or listen to your favourite music. I say a refreshing change because it differs from other song writing books that I have recently purchased with titles such as "How To Write That Hit!" etc which seem to spend about 3 pages telling you how to write songs then divide the rest of the book between telling you how to "Pitch that song in the market" or patronising the reader with little cute stories about how they wrote their half a hit that came out 200 years ago "Oh and then Bruce, as in Springsteen, called up asking how the song was coming along, it was all so hilarious". We don't want cute stories , we want guide lines to the craft of writing beautiful songs. Lastly, in this book, Perricone does not attempt to suggest that technique is more important than inspiration, indeed he says that both work hand in hand, each one necessitating the other. As an aspiring young song writer myself I have often heard this debate between those that believe in the dreaded technique, and those that believe in inspiration alone. The argument on the one hand goes, the decline of the modern pop song is due to the fact that writers no longer learn their craft, long gone are the golden years of song writing (Berlin, Porter, Rogers and Hart etc.). On the other hand, I've heard lots of song writers (none of whom ever got a publishing deal!) saying "you dont need to learn technique, inspiration is what I use". often said with a kind of religious conviction. The example people in this camp always wheel out is the fact that, yes neither Lennon nor McMartney read or wrote music. What these people seem to fail to comprehend is that both Lennon and McCartney were almost musical scholars when it came to the popular songs of their time, analysing, dissecting and pinching sections of these songs. Anyone who's ever read "Revolution in the Head" by Ian Mcdonald (a fantastic book!) will tell you so. My own point of view is consistent with that of Perricone. Having read his book I feel that the knowledge of a little technique has only propelled and projected my creativity and to me at-least it seems preposterous that song writers should think that they need not learn a little craft. Try and become a painter or a carpenter with out a little technique. Now after years of heart ache, not knowing how to develop that little melody in my head and putting the guitar down after five minutes to make a cup of coffee, with a little know how, I am writing better songs. At least my girlfriend thinks so!!! Go and create people! We need good songs to wrap up our memories. Best wishes, jack.

It's About Composition, Plain and Simple 12 avril 2006
Par frankp93 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This terrific book examines what might be called a "theory of melody" as applied to songwriting, although many of the principles Perricone demonstrates come straight out of classical composition and could be applied to melody in many contexts

other than popular song.

The author wisely divides the work into two large areas he calls

"Melody: Its Components" and "Melody-Harmony Relationships". Separating the horizontal and vertical aspects of melody is an effective learning tool, though such a line would likely never be drawn in the intuitive act of composing.

The Components part of the book deals with the behavior of tones and the contruction of melody: the influence of rhythm on phrases, devices to develop and contrast motives

and the expansion of this basic material into larger sections is covered.

The second part of the book introduces the harmonic element, placing the melodic invention of the first part into its traditional context. Unless you're planning to write Gregorian chant or solo voice Appalachian ballads, your melodies interact

with, and are to a certain extent a function of, the underlying harmony. Tension tones, and the influence of target and bass tones are explored. Gradually the integration of harmony and melody unfolds and a set of tools are demonstrated for creating

both chord progressions and corresponding melody. Indeed, much of this material is as applicable to jazz improvisation and composition as it is to songwriting.

The author assumes you're familiar with musical notation and the harmony illustrations are keyboard-oriented, so if you're a guitarist you'll have to adapt the chord symbols to your own voicings.

The harmonic vocabulary covers a broad range of musical styles and should be familiar to rock/pop musicians as well as those interested in jazz/show tunes. There are a number of references to well-known songs, but in contrast to Jimmy Kochulis' books, Perricone relies somewhat less on examples and possibly

more on the individual's own initiative. He assumes you've got the listening background and experience and have confidence beyond the phase of literal imitation (a phase that's nothing to be ashamed of and has been the starting point for most composers throughout history).

There's a tremendous amount of useful material here for those willing to work at it. This is not a "write a hit song in 21 days"-type of book. It's a serious composition text that will reward serious study.

An excellent intermediate level book 4 septembre 2005
Par jd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an excellent intermediate level book on the theoretical aspects of melody in vocal music. The book does an excellent job of covering the theoretical reasons that make a good melody work. It also explains how to marry words and melody together to stress the meaning of the lyrics and their rhyming structures.

My only complaint is the often overly technical way that the author presents the material. The book reads a lot like a textbook for the Berklee School of Music (the publisher of this book, and a school that I attended). I highly recommend that anyone considering this book have an intermediate background in music theory and the ability to read music. About a half of the book is dedicated to musical examples notated in standard music notation. And the author assumes that the reader understands basic to intermediate music theory and harmony. I would also have liked the book to have come with a very basic cd of recordings of all the examples in the book. That would be a lot more efficient then having to play them yourself. And listening allows for an easier aural analysis of a concept than playing it, and listening at the same time, does.

That said, if you have the background required, this is an excellent book on its stated subject.

Good Book 6 septembre 2004
Par Wyatt Willoughby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It took some time to get into this book. It is pretty complicated. I think I was looking for answers when I wasn't even sure what the question was when I first picked it up and so the book seemed very abstract. But after about 6 or 7 times referencing the book trying to solve various problems I finally started to see what it was getting at. Since then I have found it particularly helpful. I really covers a lot. You definitely will start to listen to the radio, CDs. etc with all of the ideas/techiniques in mind. Not an easy read, but well worth it if you are willing to put in the required effort.
