My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I used to host a podcast called The Hit Hackers. In it, we’d analyze #1 hit songs in many genres. We spent a lot of time deconstructing country hits because that’s the market I was writing for at the time. I also did occasional breakdowns of the top-50 country songs on the billboard chart, looking at things like tempo, duration, song structure, theme, number of co-writers, etc. In the process of all this, I wrote a lot of songs, demoed them and pitched them.
This eBooklet contains my learning. It’s short and to the point, and it contains everything I’d wish I’d known when I started.
