Book Description

Pattison presents a unique, in-depth approach to the process of lyric writing. Apprentice songwriters will examine 17 extraordinary songs and learn the distinct elements that make them so effective.

Songwriters will:

This is a must for any song writer.

I don't care how pro or amateur you are. It will also impact all poets and prose writers. There's a whole section where words come to life as sounds, conveying not only emotion, but cool techniques for echoing structural dissonance, nostalgia, unity. The book helped me start looking at rhyme in a whole new way, like a pallette of emotional and structural colors.

HASH(0x94b7281c) étoiles sur 5 One of the "Big Three" for lyric writers 29 décembre 2009
Par J.B. Fillmore - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"Writing Better Lyrics" does an excellent job of providing specific examples and tools for mastering the complex craft of lyric writing. The author extends his formal knowledge of poetry to encompass the additional elements that lyrics require, and does so in a readable, non-technical way. However, no single book can cover all the facets and nuances of writing lyrics, especially since there are so many different artistic temperaments and musical styles. Thus, this book is best used in conjunction with the two other major books for lyricists, The Craft of Lyric Writing (the original classic), and Songcrafters' Coloring Book: The Essential Guide to Effective and Successful Songwriting (the newest, introducing new ideas based on human nature and detailed song analysis). Used as a group, these three books cover all the subtleties and various approaches to the topic, and are sure to provide useful tools for any type of artistic temperament. Each provides a unique set of examples, techniques and insights which work together to create a synergy that is hard to find in any single book.

HASH(0x94b728e8) étoiles sur 5 Enter into the realm of what you don't know 4 juillet 2010
Par Avrim Topel, Author of GREEN BEGINNINGS: The Story of How We Built Our Green & Sustainable Home - Publié sur

As a songwriter, I've always been wary of over-analyzing the magic that delivers songs to me. Some come prompted from a specific instrument, others from the sound of a note or a chord. Others arrive out of the blue, or from an experience. Mostly, I don't set out to write songs, but rather, songs find me. So, in my mind, over-intellectualizing about this magical process has always been a taboo for me. Don't mess with this God given gift, I've told myself again and again. Well, I've been wrong. Pat Pattison's obviously been aware of this for a long time. His book provides tools, tricks, and awareness to enhance a songwriters ideas and craft. He offers activities to evoke the creative process and templates, formulas, and good rules that one may pick and choose to use or apply to one's songs that are just really good stuff. You don't have to do things Pattison's way at all, but if you want to take your craft to another level, the blueprint is here.
I've found myself re-visiting songs written 20 + years ago and making changes just because I now realize that it really could be better by applying this set of knowledge or that rationale.
I almost signed up to take his on-line Berkley course last week that uses this book, but since I am presently re-reading it for the third time, I'll wait for another one into the future. Songwriters, if you've never read a book that actually gets into the action steps that happen when you write a song, do yourselves a favor and get this book. You can thank me later.

HASH(0x94b72bc4) étoiles sur 5 Finally, a real teacher with a repeatable system for lyric writing! 11 janvier 2013
Par Perpetual Dreamer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have never been a lyric writier. I wanted to remedy that deficiency. But do I have the talent, creativity, skills to do it? The books I had bought to help me weren't helping. They dispensed facts. Prosody, rhyme, form, blah, blah. This book is different. Pat is a real, breathing teacher. From the first chapter, he has you on a program designed to rewire the way you think--to harvest the rich garden of word memories you have stored away in your brain. To systematically build tables of nouns and verbs that will serve your song. To then really understand rhyme and prosidy. You learn by doing--not by reading and examining other people's songs. It's all about you and your innate skills plus the necessary new skills to harness them. I feel liberated!

HASH(0x94b72abc) étoiles sur 5 Really Really helpful 14 janvier 2013
Par M. T. Ireland - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
So... being a right-brained songwriter, I have a tendency to buy these books and then only look at them occasionally when I feel stuck in the process. This book inevitably gives me some nuts and bolts way to look at my song differently and get over the hump to a more creative solution. It also helps me refine my songs once I feel they are 'done' and make them even better. Highly recommend it as a tool in your songwriting toolbox.

HASH(0x94b72ca8) étoiles sur 5 Fantastically written and conceived! 13 octobre 2014
Par Brenton - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Pat Pattison has provided a wealth of techniques to access areas of my own writing I had not known of previously. He provides a number of fantastic tools to enhance the writing experience; however, most importantly provides reassurance to trust in your own instincts - rely on your experiences. The book features many fully worked examples of how each effect can change sentiment, emotion or meaning. An essential read for any songwriter, beginner and professional alike!
