As a remarkable exploration of the hidden forces that define a piece of music, The Mechanics of Songwriting allows the reader to see what's really going on in some of the most successful songs ever recorded. Interviews with songwriters are combined with contextual material and technical analysis to reveal these inner workings in a language that can be understood by musicians who have not been through years of formal musical training. A guitarist seeking to write songs in the vein of history's most accomplished songwriters can do no better than to read this groundbreaking book.
