520 |a There are few creative acts more mysterious and magical than writing a song. Tweedy believes that the difference between one song and many songs isn't a cute semantic trick-- it's an important distinction that can simplify a notoriously confusing art form. The idea of becoming a songwriter can seem daunting, but approached as a focused, self-contained event, the mystery and fear subsides, and songwriting becomes an exciting pursuit. Here he brings readers into the intimate process of writing one song: lyrics, music, and putting it all together. Doing so allows you to access the deep sense of wonder that remains at the heart of this fulfilling, artistic act. -- adapted from jacket
