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.
