Songwriting Secrets: Bruce Springsteen examines the variety of styles employed by Springsteen over the course of his 30-year career, from the complex song structures found on his earlier albums to the folk simplicity and narrative drive of his later work. Author Rikky Rooksby deconstructs Springsteen’s best-loved songs, covering song structure, arrangements, chord progressions, dynamics, melodies and lyrics. He shows how the common techniques used in Springsteen’s songs can help aspiring or experienced songwriters structure intros, verses, choruses and bridges; and write songs using anything from two to seven chords. Suggestions for overcoming writer’s block and conceiving original lyrics provide inspiration and specific instruction, and a comprehensive career overview and annotated discography are also included.
Rikky Rooksby is the author of numerous books for songwriters, including the bestselling How To Write Songs on Guitar, Riffs, The Songwriting Sourcebook, Chord Master, and Melody. He lives in London, England.
