You see, I had met some truly successful writers who had taught me what was really important! They had instructed me to FIRST, make sure I was writing strong, memorable songs--potential hits. THEN make sure they never got presented in a bad light. And only then, should I think about getting them "into the right hands." I quickly learned that getting your songs in front of the right people is not only simple, it's nearly effortless.
So what happened at that little coffeehouse gig? I'll tell you, but first let me ask you a question. What do you really want out of your songwriting? Maybe you want to make your living at it. (And I'm talking good living...sometimes VERY good. I have friends who live in million dollar houses, paid for with cash from writer's royalties.)
By the way, If you want to get my free report: "Unforgettable--Writing Songs that Stick!" Just click here and fill in your name and email address and I'll send it to you via email. Then come back here and keep reading!
Maybe you just want the joy and satisfaction of hearing your own songs sung by a crowd of grateful people, knowing that you moved people deeply. (I can tell you there's nothing quite as fulfilling as that. It's even more fulfilling than getting my royalty checks every quarter.)
It certainly seems like something is standing in your way, doesn't it? The songwriting business sometimes feels like it's all smoke and mirrors. For instance, if you've ever attempted to send your songs to a music publisher's office, you probably smacked into the brick wall with a sign that says "No Unsolicited Material Accepted." Well, I'm here to show you what that really means and why it's actually GOOD NEWS, once you know what you're doing.
The strange truth is, if you write great songs today, you have even fewer barriors than when I started out many years ago. Did you catch that? It is easier than ever to break into and succeed in the songwriting business. Real people... regular people...break into the business every day. But very few of them do it by accident. It almost always happens after someone figures out what works and what doesn't.
Remember my little coffeehouse gig? Nothing to write home about, right? ...except...2 separate strangers from the audience came up afterward and complimented me on my songs, and then casually mentioned that they'd love to take a copy of my recording to "so-and-so" at "Blah-blah-blah Publishing" (2 separate companies that I had heard of and knew very well). Of course I gladly gave them each a copy.
LESS THAN A WEEK LATER, I got a call from BOTH publishers, wanting to talk to me about becoming one of their writers. HOW did I make that happen? That, my friend, is what I want to teach you.
Within 6 months, I was able to quit my construction job and make a living writing and singing music. The doors had flung open and I just started walking through them. Within 5 years, I had signed a recording contract and had #1 songs on the radio.
I have to mention this again: I'm a regular guy. I grew up fairly poor, in Louisiana of all places. I always loved music, but I didn’t write my first song until I was nearly 20 years old. Before that, I didn't even know regular human beings wrote songs. I was shy, never traveled much, worked in regular jobs (carpenter, fry cook, iron worker)...But by the time I was 24, I had learned how to write hits and had songs on the radio.
So how did I go from not even knowing real people wrote songs to writing HITS in just a short time?
Unfortunately, Most Songwriters
Will Never Know How to Go from Scratch to
Success...but you will.
If you’ve read this far, I know you have a desire (maybe a craving) to succeed with your writing. Every songwriter seems to. But what do most writers do about it? I’ll tell you...it's just what I did at first …
They do a lot of wishful thinking about getting “discovered!”
They usually put the cart WAY before the horse. Nine out of 10 songwriters I talk to are seeking the answer to the same burning question. What is that question?
“HOW CAN I GET MY SONGS HEARD?”
The answer to that question is so EASY, it’s painful…and I'll teach you every simple step. But here's the interesting part: IT’S THE DEAD WRONG QUESTION!!
Most writers won't dare ask the RIGHT QUESTION. They just won't. What is the right question?
“HOW CAN I LEARN TO WRITE SONGS THAT PEOPLE WILL BEG TO HEAR AGAIN AND AGAIN?”
The sad truth is that most songwriters give up before they see the kind of success they long for—they give up and settle for MOANING AND GROANING that the industry is stacked against them and...waa, waa, waa, sniffle.
With that little attitude, it just becomes too painful to say what they REALLY, REALLY want—to write songs that move people—songs that are in demand— songs that could make them a living.
It's Regular People, Like You, that Write Hit Songs!
This is where I come in. You see, even though I've had some radio success, I'm really not all that talented.
I've spent the last 30 years learning (the hard way) everything that's been written about songwriting. I've learned HOW TO START FROM NOTHING and go through the steps that end in SELLABLE and even HIT SONGS. I've had to make up a lot of my own processes (things I've never seen in songwriting books), but I use them because I'm only interested in what really works.
For a long time my friends have heard me speak at seminars and do private coaching on songwriting and said "You have to write a book... You have to write a book..."
So that's what I've done. I've taken the time to write down everything that I've learned and discovered into a new book, in step-by-step, easy-to-understand language. I learned how to publish the book online and make it available to you for instant download.
The book is called “Strong Songwriting: How to Write Songs That Grab Listeners and Launch Careers!”.
Ok, the first reviews are in! Here's what readers are saying about this book:
"Morgan, you've given me the key to finding the "secret hook." I now believe there's no expire date on my creativity! I will write a great song, thanks to you."
--Chuck White Clarkston, MI (48 years young)
"Morgan, you kept me up til 3am reading this thing, I couldn't put it down. This will change my writing forever. You are truly gifted, and now I get to share in that gift!"
Tom Hampton Detroit, MI
"This book is great for new writers and old pros too. It has made me recall things I learned and forgot. Old tricks and new. Good work, Morgan!"
Paul Morino Nashville, TN (professional songwriter)
more testimonials here!
I've learned that most songwriters do exactly the WRONG things in many of their songs, resulting in ho-hum response. If you don't believe me, attend a writer's night at ANY club. Better yet, sing your own songs at an open mic, and you'll get some experience, and hear what else is out there.
If you are having less than amazing response to your songs, then this book was written for you.
If you're already a good songwriter, this book will make you better and will show you how to turn it into a living.
Maybe you just want to be the part-time songwriter that everyone in your area wants to be like. Or you may want to write songs for a full-time living. You may even have a goal of buying that million dollar house with cash from your songwriting royalties. Whatever your situation, this book will help you.
This book is backed by years of my own real world experience, learning from scratch, as well as the “tricks of the trade” learned from my fellow hit writers. I'm not kidding around with you—most of this stuff got learned by most of us the hard way—by trying every wrong thing first. You won't find this kind of information in any other book - I guarantee it.
I've decided to publish this manual only as an 'eBook'... which means that you can download it and start learning these secrets immediately— from the comfort of your own computer. It turns out that...
Songwriting is actually 3 Things: 1) a Set of Skills you can learn and hone, 2) a Business that can make you a grand living; and 3) an "Inner Game" that you must master.
Here's a sample of some of what you'll learn:

The Business and How to Break Into It
I read all the books, went to the seminars, and tried everything. It wasn't until I did THIS ONE THING that opened all the doors for me.

Learn and use the “Jetstream” writing technique to bypass your inner critic. – pg.158

“Writing a Killer Bridge — Mastering the Art of the Multiple Song Climax”
How many times have you reached your second chorus and wondered why the song’s emotional impact levels off too soon…BORRRRING…so you write a bridge, but it doesn’t help!
I've had so many writers ask me: “How do you write a great bridge?” or, “How do I know whether I should write a bridge or not?” or, “What do I do when I’ve said everything already?” In this report I answer these questions in an ultra-practical style.
I'll teach you:
- A simple, quick test for whether you need to write a bridge or not. (Few writers ask the RIGHT QUESTIONS because they don’t know what they are.)
- Never write another “obligatory” bridge again…learn what you must MOVE to make your bridge bring the audience to a new level.
- The secret to deciding whether to use a key change OR NOT. (Many writers get this all wrong, either resulting in a melodramatic misstep, or disappointing the audience’s expectations.)
Inside this condensed report, I spill the beans on my best ideas and use lots of examples so you're really looking over my shoulder.
You'll also get:
Instant Beginner's Luck for Songwriters!

I did a few things right very early in my songwriting experience. It resulted in very quick response and a bunch of open doors. This report is about what I did. It still works!
- The shocking truth about how/why particular songs get on the radio (How many times have YOU said “I have songs that are better than THAT! How did that get on the radio?”)
- How to make sure that you DON’T fit in! In this case, that’s a good thing, believe me.
- The “3-Piece Thumbnail” that you can carry immediately into your writing that will zoom you ahead of your competition, even if you’re a total NOVICE. (Hint: Experienced writers will get even more benefit from this little mental checklist!)
- A HUGE mistake (that seems like the right thing to do) in your verses…if you do this, it will kill even a great chorus!
- How to use the KIND of words that no listener can resist! (It will only take you a few minutes to begin doing this as a habit. You’re going to LOVE this one)

Let Me Ask You This:
What if this knowledge helps you write just ONE successful song? Just ONE. What would that be worth to you?
Now ask yourself: What if it even just raises the overall level of my skill and puts me well above the musical crowd I mix with now? What if I really can learn how to write the kind of songs that I've always wanted?
For most songwriters, even a moderately successful song would be worth thousands in real dollars. But I know for a fact that the internal power it represents is worth much more… it is priceless.
I wish that I would have been able to buy this experience, insight, and “back-office” knowledge for $49.97 when I started. I certainly would have been glad to make that investment in myself.
Here's my guarantee…
Read “Strong SongWriting”
and if it's not worth MORE than the price by your own estimation...I insist you take your money back!
Even though the price is small, this may be the most important investment you'll ever make in your career as a songwriter. This is a Turning Point.
I assure you that you'll be able to use what you learn in my eBook to write more (and more successful) songs.
This book may have the one exact nugget of truth you need to make your writing finally “click” into place. (It’s actually FULL of such nuggets…I’ve been gathering them for 30 years!)
But I want you to be absolutely sure it’s going to help you, that's why I will insist you ask for a refund after you read it IF it's not worth MORE than you paid for it.
Read the book from cover to cover and you'll find “step-by-steps” you can use RIGHT AWAY to go from ‘scratch’ to ‘sellable songs’ in the shortest time possible. This is a promise I’m willing to stand behind.
Take 7 or 30 or 100 days to read the book and start applying the techniques you learn.
If, after you've read the book you decide that it's not for you… or you didn't find any useful information in it for your situation, simply reply to the email confirmation you'll receive when you download your copy of the book, write “cancel” in your message, and we'll issue a refund immediately.
