“Inspiration for Songwriters: Tips and Tricks to Unlocking the Muse” is not your typical book about songwriting. It does not explain how to write, publish, pitch, promote or record your next song. There are already dozens of songwriting books covering those subjects. What “Inspiration for Songwriters” provides is something few other songwriting books offer, and in our humble opinion, does it much better than the few similar titles on the market. It provides thousands of inspirational ideas that could very well be the seeds to your next song! All in all, “Inspiration for Songwriters: Tips and Tricks to Unlocking the Muse” includes over 2000 titles, tips, tricks and other ideas that will inspire you to create song after song.
I hadn’t flipped through more than a few pages, just reading random bits and pieces, before I had more ideas for new songs than I could shake a stick at. In the hierarchy of books, this one clearly falls into the category of those that accomplish what they set out to do. And that is a substantial achievement. — The Muse’s Muse, January 2007
Wow, what a great idea for a book. You don’t just read it once and put it away, you go back to it again and again whenever you need some new ideas or a ‘jump-start’. Way to go Stan. This is right there in my music library next to ‘Mel Bay’s Deluxe Encyclopedia of Guitar Chords’ — Calvin Buckles, songwriters/muscian
