Beating Songwriter's Block: Jump-Start Your Words and Music - Gary EwerMusic Connection has published an article I wrote for their July issue, entitled “Improvise Your Way To Your Next Song.” It’s based on some of the ideas I’ve put in my new book, “Beating Songwriter’s Block: Jump-Start Your Words and Music“, published by Backbeat Books, a subsidiary of Hal Leonard Corporation.
