Songwriting Demystified is a guide written for new or aspiring songwriters. While most songwriting books focus on the importance of music theory or certain lyrical patterns, Songwriting Demystified focuses on teaching self-improvement and the importance of compounding your already-existing skill set. Although most books may lead you to believe songwriting is a complicated process, Songwriting Demystified aims to disprove this idea and shows you how you can develop your own efficient method of writing songs. There are no "secrets" and there is no such thing as "natural talent" in songwriting. Your skill level and success will be completely dependent on the amount of effort and focus you are willing to put into your artistic development.
