Book of the Week #2- 'The Songwriter Toolbox' from www.geetar.com
Cal Williams Jr says "This is one my favourite titles as it has been slowly and carefully created over many years. I love this book as even from the first chapter the reader receives practical and detailed advice about lyrical and rhyming techniques alongside great advice on how to ignite your creative mind. The second chapter explains how to use chord families to build original chord progressions. I highly recommend this book to all songwriters regardless of age or experience. I wish I had this book myself when I first began songwriting!"
The Geetar Bookshop is at 124 Gilbert St, Adelaide or online at www.geetar.com. Participating stores are Derringers Music, Harrison Music in Adelaide and Lord Uke, Melbourne.
