The myths of songwriting success

The myths of songwriting success: Write Think and Act Like a Professional Songwriter
The myths of songwriting success: Write Think and Act Like a Professional Songwriter

There are some dangerous myths or misconceptions about the way the music industry works. Industry pro Cliff Goldmacher explains what those are in this songwriting tutorial. Believing that a rough homemade recording is acceptable or that you'll get discovered at a music conference are a few myths that can cause genuine disappointment for you if you're not aware of them. Also, believing that a publishing deal is the answer to your prayers or that anything of lasting value will happen quickly are misconceptions that are best avoided. Success as a songwriter is possible, but you have to have a clear-eyed understanding of the industry as it really is.
