The Songwriter’s Handbook Reviews

The Songwriter’s Handbook

  • Used Book in Good Condition

“I remember when I first got to Nashville,” says Tom T. Hall. “I would have like to have had a book like this. It would have saved me a lot of time finding answers to questions.”

To help other songwriters, Tom T. Hall has put the answers in this book. “Songwriting is as much a craft as it is a talent,” he says. “In order to write songs, you have to be able to recognize what a song is. You have to recognize the importance of something that is entertaining, and you have to say what you  want to say very briefly.”

In this down-to-earth handbook, the Storyteller teaches the secrets of becoming a successful songwriter. Among the important topics treated are:

  • What is a song and how will I know when I have one?
  • How can I find edeas for songs?
  • How do I combine words with music?
  • What is the Nashville music industry really like?
  • Definitions of terms and expressions used in the music business

The Songwriter’s Handbook also includes stories of how he wrote some of his own hits, such as “I Flew Over Our House Last Night,” “Ravishing Ruby,” “I See,” and “Old Dogs, Children, and Watermelon Wine.” He analyzes the songs, showing how he uses his own rules for successful songwriting.

Included in the book are words and music to many of Tom T. Hall’s most successful songs along with personal photos. An earlier version of The Songwriter’s Handbook was published as How I Write Songs; Why You Can

City Hall Protest

The developer, First Pro Shopping Centres, has agreed to contribute .8 million, while the city planned to cover the remainder through a new interchange levy and .7 million from its transportation reserve.

The Saskatoon Public Library board, however, had not yet agreed to the idea and last week came under increasing pressure to reject it. Council also received numerous letters from citizens strongly against using funds intended for libraries to move the retail project forward.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents library and municipal workers in Saskatoon, joined members of Should Exploitive Economics Persist (ShEEP) — a local group lobbying against Stonegate and its anchor Wal-Mart store — at the rally Monday. But union officials did not speak to council.

"It’s completely unacceptable that the city could short-change our public library system in order to subsidize a development for the largest corporation in the world," CUPE Saskatchewan president Tom Graham, who is also a city employee, said in a news release issued earlier in the day.

"Wal-Mart has a long track record of destroying local businesses, busting unions and treating their employees like dirt," Graham stated. "We don’t need this kind of development in Saskatoon."

Though city officials and some councillors have noted there can be no future taxes generated for either the city or its libraries if a retail complex fails to materialize on the site, city manager Phil Richards said the funding strategy was never meant to spark a debate about libraries versus an overpass.

Hall & Kirk
Tom T. Hall
Image by itmpa
That’s the funny thing about buildings in historic town centres – they respond best when ‘in discussion’ with neighbouring buildings. It’s what makes our crowded little towns and cities on this cramped little island special – St John’s Kirk hasn’t been isolated for centuries, hemmed in amongst activity and every day life. Buildings dotted around as ‘set pieces’ in a barren wasteland is simply not suitable for mediaeval-cum-19th century civic centres.

P.T. Barnum

P.T. Barnum, c. 1860, Modern albumen print from wet plate collodion negative (carte de visite) by Matthew Brady Studio

Early in 1842, P. T. Barnum opened the American Museum on Broadway in New York. A modern cabinet of wonders, it displayed real minerals, fossils, and stuffed animals alongside ingenious hoaxes such as the Feejee Mermaid (a mummified monkey joined to the body of a fish). Barnum had a bold talent for publicity, and he happily profited from the public’s taste for what he called "Humbug." The American Museum included a stage (called a Lecture Hall to welcome virtuous Sunday visitors, families, and children) where Barnum launched the career of a charming midget, Charles S. Stratton, who became "General Tom Thumb." Tom Thumb dressed in costume (imitating Napoleon and Hercules among others), sang, danced, and told jokes. A few years after Barnum toured with Tom Thumb to Europe, he brought Swedish soprano Jenny Lind to America for a two-year concert tour. Barnum generated such extraordinary excitement over her visit that some critics complained about "Lindomania." Barnum and Brady were almost contemporaries, with a similar ability to catch the public eye. Brady opened his first studio across the street from Barnum’s museum in 1844. He photographed Barnum on many occasions and often made portraits of his performers.
