About 101 Songwriting Wrongs & How to Right Them

Many of the chapter titles are word-plays on song titles. "I Did It Their Way," is sub-titled "Don't write to impress or please others, write from your own passion," and "To Sing the Unsingable Word" warns "Beware of tongue-twisting word combinations and hard consonants on long notes." Music business topics are covered, too, in chapters such as "No Sir, That's My Baby," advising "Don't be reluctant to let go of a song because you're saving it for your artist deal " and "Pennies from Heaven," instructing "Don't think your royalties will automatically come to you." More of the chapter headings are listed in What Songwriters Need to Know.

Each chapter gives a specific example of the "wrong" and specific information on how to make it right. Many of the chapters give examples of songs brought to our songwriting workshops. We have been teaching for thirty years and we've seen these same mistakes being made by songwriters all over the country.
