Das Buch führt den Leser Schritt für Schritt zum komplett fertigen Song - vom Aussuchen des Rhythmus, über die Zusammenstellung der Harmonien, bis hin zum Komponieren der Melodie. Dabei wird auf komplizierte Musiktheorie völlig verzichtet. Damit der Leser das, was im Buch erklärt wird, auch praktisch nachvollziehen kann, hat der Autor dem Buch einen Praxis-Workshop spendiert. Hier wird anhand von Hörbeispielen (auf der Homepage des Autors zu finden) und praxisorientierten Erläuterungen nach und nach ein kompletter Song fertig produziert. Weiterhin erfährt der Leser, wie er einen Songtext schreibt und den Song für Live-Darbietungen oder eine Aufnahme in einem Tonstudio arrangiert. Die gezeigte Methodik eignet sich sowohl für Rock- und Popsongs als auch andere populäre Stile. Auch die Vorbereitung und die eigentliche Arbeit in einem Tonstudio werden behandelt. Ein eigenes Kapitel bildet der Einsatz des Computers beim Komponieren und der Erstellung einer eigenen Musikhomepage. Letztlich erfährt der Leser, wie er durch die Anwendung einer wissenschaftlichen Methode sicher feststellen kann, wie seine Songs beim Hörer ankommen. Das Ganze ist mehr als die Summe seiner Teile, weshalb die vielen behandelten Themen eine breite Wirkung entfalten.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Beratung, Therapie, SRH Fachhochschule Heidelberg (University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg), Veranstaltung: Music Therapy, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In den letzten zehn Jahren ist das Interesse an Songwriting als therapeutische Intervention unter Musiktherapeuten gewachsen. Der Schwerpunkt der Studien liegt jedoch meist auf den klinischen Ergebnissen und nicht auf der Behandlungsmethode, sodass diverse praktische und theoretische Ansätze nebeneinander bestehen. Die vorliegende Übersichts-arbeit untersucht mittels qualitativer Synthesemethoden die aktuelle deutsche und englischsprachige Literatur (seit 2000) zum Thema Songwriting in der Musiktherapie im Hinblick auf spezifische Songwriting-Techniken und theoretische Rahmenbedingungen. Insgesamt 58 Veröffentlichungen, davon 57 englische und eine deutsche, sind in die Arbeit eingegangen und wurden den Kategorien Onkologie, Palliativ- und Trauer-begleitung, Psychiatrie, Neurorehabilitation, Adoleszenz und Senioren zugeordnet. Anhand von Schlüsselbegriffen und Kernkonstrukten der therapeutischen Argumentation der Autoren konnten Gemeinsamkeiten in der praktischen Umsetzung und den Erklärungsmodellen herausgearbeitet werden. Wichtige Entscheidungen im therapeutischen Songwriting-Prozess wurden transparent gemacht und zentrale Ideen zur Wirksamkeit von Songwriting zusammengefasst. Damit soll eine Basis gelegt werden für die Entwicklung eines allgemeinen Modells für therapeutisches Songwriting und weitere Forschung angeregt werden.

Revised 2013 About the Book Achieving "hit writer" status has always been a formidable goal for any songwriter. Never more so however than in the 21st century. Catching the ear of the monumentally distracted, fragmented listener has never been more difficult. Getting their attention, inviting them in to your song and keeping them there for long enough for your song to become "their song" requires more than being just a "good" songwriter. Murphy's Laws of Songwriting "The Book" arms the songwriter for success by demystifying the process and opening the door to serious professional songwriting. Hall of fame songwriter Paul Williams said in his review of the book "If there was a hit songwriters secret handshake Da Murphy would probably have included it." About the Author Ralph Murphy, songwriter, has been successful for five decades. Consistently charting songs in an ever-changing musical environment makes him a member of that very small group of professionals who make a living ding what they love to do. Add to that the platinum records as a producer, the widely acclaimed Murphy's Laws of Songwriting articles used as part of curriculum at colleges, universities, and by songwriter organizations, his success as the publisher and co-owner of the extremely successful Picalic Group of Companies and you see a pattern of achievement based on more than luck.
