Beginning songwriters as well as experienced ones wishing to enhance their ability to compose tuneful melodies can turn to Weissman's primer. He first defines a melody as "the single line of the structure that you can hum or whistle" and discusses generally how to read and write musical notation before delving into the melody-generating process. One interesting note: "The book is designed to be equally user-friendly for guitarists or keyboard players." Whether one is attempting to write ad jingles or pop tunes, Weissman's guide demonstrates the steps to follow in devising the melody and melding it with the lyrics.
