to become the greatest musicians of all time…
Imagine this. You're

The thing that
happened used to be a mysterious thing. It used to occasionally happen
“out of the blue” but you now control this, and it happens
all the time.
get up and walk over to your instrument. You pick it up, full of confidence
and a strange “uplifting” feeling. You begin playing. As
you play, the most miraculous sound comes out. This is something you’ve
never played before, but you’re not surprised because new and
exciting musical ideas are second nature to you these days.
There was once
a time when you didn’t always come up with “gold”
straight away, but now… you are accustomed to digging for “musical
gold” every day, and getting it too.
You continue to
play your instrument. This new idea grows, evolves and transforms before
your eyes and ears. It’s strange. It’s not like you’re
really controlling it, but you look down and it is your hands that are
doing the playing.
Within a few hours,
it’s complete. You’ve written yet another breathtaking piece
of music. You’re proud as punch. You sit back in your chair and
enjoy the warm feeling that comes over your body.

to them that you’ve come up with another brilliant piece, but
it still causes them to tremble with emotion every single time.
Life is good. You’ve
cracked the “genius songwriting code”. You know how to easily
manipulate a powerful creative process within yourself. Your life as
a musician is filled with wonder, inspiration and success…
Now let me ask
you a question…
Is this story about
And if not…
would you like it to be?
Unfortunately, Most Musicians
Never Have This Kind Of
Success With Their Songwriting
Why do most musicians
fail at writing great music? Or why do they write music that uses only
a fraction of their full potential as a songwriter?
A lot of this has
to do with the way you were brought up. You see, with the traditional
style of learning that happens in the school systems, you were taught
to “sit up and pay attention”. You were scolded if you were
caught in a daydream or if your attention was anywhere besides the black
The problem is
that this gradually conditioned you out of being creative.
Now, whenever you
pick up your instrument to write music, you are still caught up in this
narrow minded trance where your creativity is blocked. If you could
let even a fraction more of your potential creativity through the cracks,
you would open yourself up to mind boggling musical possibilities.
that I know are like this. Great ideas don’t come easily. They
get caught up on chasing the “perfect” melody, and it never
arrives because they have “closed off” much of their creativity.
A few years ago,
I was caught in a similar rut.
I loved songwriting,
but things just weren’t happening for me. Every time I went to
write new music I would get caught up in the “same old”
patterns. Every song sounded the same and things felt bland.
How could I break
new ground with my music? How could I write inspiring, fresh music that
One day, sick and
tired of writing the same old bland music, I decided to do something
about it. I couldn’t stand the idea of writing stale, boring
music the rest of my life, destined to a failed music career.
I went on a personal
mission to discover how great music is created. I read books. I listened
to tapes. I went to seminars on how to become a great songwriter. But
the frustrating part was that most of what I learned was WRONG—most
of it simply didn't work when I tried it!
Have you ever read those books
and articles that tell you how to write “the perfect hook”,
or hand you the chord progression that will unlock a “magical
These things sound
great in theory, but when you try and apply the ideas to your music,
they always fall short.
I tried everything
I could get my hands on, but the further I got, the more I realized
that the answer I was looking for was something else.
The great musicians
of the world surely don’t read up on “how to write a great
hook”. No way. There’s something else at play here. What
makes a great composer or songwriter tick? More on this in a few minutes…
The sad thing is:
most musicians stay in this rut forever. They never break out. Instead
of creating amazing music that has an IMPACT on the world, they stay
stale and bland. Their music never goes very far because it is unoriginal,
and doesn’t have the “zing” that a great songwriter
so easily creates.
Instead of writing
song after song of breathtaking material that they are truly proud
of, they barely pass an albums worth of mediocre material and end up
abandoning the dream of being a respected artist.
It doesn’t have to be this way!
This is where I
the last few years learning everything there is to know about creating
spellbinding music that moves people.
I made it my personal
mission to discover exactly why great music is created. And I have nailed
it down to exact steps that can be followed which will unleash the master
songwriter inside of you.
that drove my research was this:
a musical genius write music?
Why can they write music so much more powerful and moving than the average
I researched as much as I could on the way that the
great songwriters of the world write music. I'm not talking about
the average songwriter who has had a hit or two and know how to write
a catchy lick. I'm talking about bonafide songwriting geniuses who's music has
changed the planet. I wanted to know everything I
could about the way these people create music.
Why are they able to create masterpieces? How do they create music
that seems to have a "magical" aura surrounding it? What
are they doing inside their minds to access such unbelievable creativity?
It's questions like these that drove me to some incredible discoveries.
In my research
I came across an interesting quote from noted scientist Win Wenger about
how genius happens:
“Over the years, my studies have led me consistently to the conclusion
that geniuses are little more than ordinary people who
have stumbled upon some knack or technique for widening
their channel of attention, thus making conscious their subtle, unconscious
As you can see from this quote, a genius in any field is just an ordinary
person who, for some reason or another, discovered a way to use their
resources in a different way to normal.
way of using their resources is what gets the amazing results.
This means that
if you could discover the “knack or technique” for musical
genius, then you could use this method for creating music.
You could get the amazing results of a musical genius.
Spurred by this
new information I became an expert in topics like cognitive psychology,
neural linguistics programming, human genius, and creativity. The more I delved
into these fields the more amazing discoveries I made about the human
brain and what it can accomplish if you know how to use it properly.
As I learned these
new, fascinating concepts, I began to formulate techniques and procedures
to incorporate the concepts into my songwriting.
The results were phenomenal.
With some easy "tweaks" to my approach, I was able to multiply the quality of my song ideas by at least 20 times.
Musical ideas came
thick and fast.
And the more I
incorporated this new knowledge into my music creation process, the
more the quality and uniqueness of my ideas increased... fresh…inspiring…
filled with magic and wonder.
My music career
flourished. People that heard my music were in awe. My friends couldn’t
believe the transformation that my songwriting had gone through.
And every day I
would go back into my office and bury myself in my research, to learn
more about how musical genius happens. Every day I had new discoveries
and insights into how amazing music is created.
All of a sudden
I realized that I had discovered something very valuable.
This new method
of music creation was one that any musician could use to greatly
accelerate their songwriting abilities. By showing someone exactly how
to embrace these new concepts and use them to write music, they too
could feel the miraculous results that I have experienced.
One day I decided
to put this idea to the test. Over a period of three days I visited
three of my closest musician friends. I told them that I had discovered
something that could really affect the way they approached music. They
all agreed to test these methods for themselves to see if these ideas
could be applied over different genres of music.
Once again the
results were awe inspiring, although this time I wasn’t as surprised.
The thing is: the
information I shared with my musician friends was only really the tip
of the iceberg. When I told them this they’re faces lit up with
curiosity and excitement. In this excitement, one of my friends blurted
out “You have to write a book… You have to write a book…”
what I've done. I've taken the time to write down everything that I've
learned and discovered in my new book in plain, easy-to-understand language.
