Useful and informative audio-book

“This guide is phenomenal, regardless of whether you are an expert or just picking up an instrument for the first time. This audiobook clearly outlines everything that you need to know about being a world-class songwriter and so much more. It's interesting, entertaining and informative. I honestly couldn't recommend this guide enough to any aspiring singer or songwriter, because it will make everything else so much easier on your journey, thank you!”

Really very bad

I am rarely moved to review things, but this is so bad that I feel compelled to warn others not to waste their money. I gave up after an hour, becoming increasingly frustrated at how vapid it is. I then skipped through a few other chapters to see if it improves. It does not. It manages the impressive feat of being both incredibly verbose, long-winded and repetitive, with having almost literally zero actual content. Long stretches make little or no sense, and it honestly sounds as though it has been google-translated via at least two different languages. In the hour or so I could stand to listen to, there was almost no technical content at all, and what little there was, was extremely basic, as though aimed at primary school children. Even, then, it is rendered in a jumbled word-soup full of baggy prose and weird phrases.

Here is an example of one of the less meandering sections: "For whatever length of time that you realise what key you are in, and what notes are in that key, you can start to base your major and minor sets of three note chords beginning with the root or essential note of the chord of each note. You can organise them in any request. This is the place individual taste and style come in. And they'll all be - sensibly - great together because they contain notes from that key that you've picked."

I feel genuinely ripped off.

I see that this review is in stark contrast to the other, five star reviews. Puzzling...

Convoluted verbiage and monotone.

I can't listen to it. The writing is convoluted to the point of nonsense.
