People all around the world are wondering what’s in the Swedish drinking water. Swedish songwriters are so influential that music magazines and bloggers talk about them as the new rulers of the pop charts. The authors of ”Songwriting: Get Your Black Belt in Music & Lyrics”, Johan Wåhlander & Jan Sparby, are really writing their book series from a vantage point. Not only have they interviewed their songwriting colleagues, Swedish and from all over the world, but they are also teaching songwriting and music theory at college level themselves, and have degrees in composition, music theory and music production from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. They have experience, deep knowledge and a wonderful ability to explain, and make things easy to understand.
