Présentation de l'éditeur

In her first two books, Sheila Davis classified the major song forms and enduring principles that have been honored for decades by America's foremost songwriters. Those books have become required reading in music courses from NYU to UCLA.

In The Songwriters Idea Book, Davis goes one step further, giving you 40 strategies for designing distinctive songs. You'll break new ground in your own songwriting by learning about the inherent relationship between language style, personality type and the brain.

  • You'll go, step by step, through the creative process as you activate, incubate, separate and discriminate.
  • You'll learn to use the whole-brain techniques of imaging, brainstorming and clustering.
  • You'll expand your skilled use of figurative language with paragrams, metonyms, synecdoche and antonomasia.
  • You'll be challenged to design metaphors, form symbols, make puns and coin words.
  • And, you'll learn how to prevent writer's block, increase your productivity and maintain your creative flow.
Over 100 successful student lyrics from pop, country, cabaret, and theater serve as role-models to illustrate the "whole-brain" songwriting process.

I found this book really full of ideas. After a brief test of personnality it helps you in order to develop your skills
in writing songs. It explains you the way you're likely to write, (as the test reveals) with your best points and weaknesses, and how to improve your writing consequently. Then you're given 40 ways to find ideas for your songs, to find a title and so on. I must warn you that this book is an advanced one, the basis of lyric writing are explained in two others book of the same author
("the craft of lyric writing" and "successful lyric writing").
The authors describes the basic principles (rythm, rhymes, structures...) only briefly and assumes you're familiar with them. If that's the case you'll find this book highly interesting and inspiring.
(please excuse my poor english, I'm french)

This book really gets you thinking. It's great for writer's block. The exercises really wake up your imagination and make you think outside of the box.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful source of inspiration and fresh perspectives 15 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book does exactly what the title says! I have to say it's one of my favorite books about the art and craft of lyric writing. Everyone wants to be original, and this book can be a very helpful tool towards that end. It's great book to help break you out of your normal way of approaching lyric writing, not to mention aid when you are blocked. I constantly look to it as a source of inspiration, and I like the way it helps to "de-mystify" the process. This book offers you different and fresh ways of approaching and treating your subject matter, techniques for coming up with ideas when you're really blocked, insight into how your personality type drives your manner of writing, plus exercises and examples to help get you going and inspire you. It also gives you "small craft warnings" about potential pitfalls and helpful tips on how to avoid them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who writes lyrics!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The cure for writer's block 30 septembre 2003
Par krebsman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Ever had writer's block? This book is the cure! Along with Davis' THE CRAFT OF LYRIC WRITING and SUCCESSFUL LYRIC WRITING, THE SONGWRITERS IDEA BOOK forms a brilliant trilogy that is essential for the person who wants to write lyrics. I'm rather surprised by reading some of the negative comments below. My guess is that those people merely leafed through the book without actually reading it. This book is NOT an easy read. It is not something that can be scanned. It must be read and studied very carefully. It is very important to understand part 2 of the book (pages 15 through 34) before moving ahead. This is the section wherein Davis analyzes the different types of the creative mind. In only a few short pages Davis introduces a lot of important concepts that need to be understood. The reader must take her tests and figure out which type he is. Then and only then is the book of value. I had to read part two several times before I really understood it. But once I had a firm grasp of those ideas, I found the book to be extremely valuable. Davis basically says that when one is blocked, that he needs to come at it from the other side of the brain. She then proceeds to give exercises that make it easy to access the unused part of the brain. While ostensibly for the lyricist, I think the principles can be adapted for any kind of writing. I think this is a great book and I am grateful to Sheila Davis for writing it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent for identifying your mind as well as song ideas 14 juin 2001
Par J. P. Hillman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I refer to this book weekly and have owned it for 4 years. I spoke the author in 1997 and thanked her for her contribution to this subject. Her 3 books are 3 volumes of my songwriting bible. It is her books that finally gave me the ability to be happy with my own songwriting for the first time in my timespan of over ten years of not liking my lyrics. In this book, the author helps you identify your style of work and how it affects your first drafts. This info also has helped me in other parts of my thinking process. No other author, so far, has been as complete and detailed in their presentation of the songwriting process as Sheila Davis. Brilliant.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So many ideas, so little time 21 février 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur

Sheila Davis is a magnificent author with a talent for inspiring people to pursue their dreams as lyricists. I found this book helpful and encouraging, and still refer back to it every chance i get, especially the techniques on escaping writer's block. Davis expresses her knowledge of writing lyrics and shares them with the reader in the least intimidating way. This is truly a must read for all songwriters.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for the money 21 mars 2004
Par Dave C - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I hear this book is some kind of industry standard book for other musicians, and I enjoyed it.
Like the other reviews said though, the 40 strategies are really 40 different types of songs you could write.
i.e. "the childrens song" "breaking up" "the christmas song"
The first couple of chapters describe what she calls "whole brain writing", and is actually very clever.
This book helped me immensly, I just knocked a star off b/c of the bad title and I think it's too short.
For the money though, you absolutely cannot go wrong!
