This is an invaluable resource for any budding songwriter or even an experienced lyricist with writer's block. Featuring tips on songwriting, the book focuses on the types of rhyme and assonance (end rhymes, last syllable rhymes, double rhymes, beginning rhymes, first syllable rhymes) for a range of popular styles. Arranged phonetically and drawn from a variety of musical 'dialects', from rock and pop to folk and hip-hop, this is the quick and simple guide you need. Supported online by our "See it - Hear it" chord site. Now you can see the chord, then reach for your phone and hear the chord. Using any free QR code reader app (Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows) a web site opens automatically and you can listen to the chord as a strum, an arpeggio (each note played separately) and hear it as a piano chord and arpeggio.
