Features
The Songwriting Sourcebook by : Rikky Rooksby


Originally published in 2003; and now revised and updated; The Songwriting Sourcebook is the third entry in Rikky Rooksby's bestselling How to Write Songs series. This easy-to-use book will help you write better songs by explaining the art of writing effective chord sequences. It shows:

• How three and four chords can lay the foundation for a simple song; and how to move on to progressions using five and six chords

• How to give your chord sequences additional color by adding chords that are not strictly in key; including blues chords

• How to write chord sequences for songs in minor keys as well as major keys; and how to take progressions into new territories by changing key

• How to fine-tune the color of your chords by understanding the emotional potential of sevenths; sixths and ninths



All examples come with easy-to-read guitar chord boxes; and the accompanying 20-track audio CD features original recordings that illustrate some of the points made in the book.
