Before mouths drop open, lips blubber in horrific sorrow, and eyeballs stream salt water all over keyboards across the land…
The below has nothing to do with you, success, or failure. Actually, that’s not entirely true. It is because of the success I’ve decided to…
Load up the Good Ship TuneBooster and set it adrift out to open sea minus its captain, never to be heard from again.
In other words… I’m shutting it down yawl.
There was a list of goals I set out to achieve with this newsletter project which you were beneficiary as well… mission accomplished.
Some of Tunesmith Tips’ goals will continue despite deciding to shut the newsletter down… Actually they’ll continue BECAUSE of my decision.
But that little web-nugget’s to be revealed at another time.
That said, July’s TuneBooster was reeled in, and August’s issue is cast upon the waters for the taking.
If you are a subscriber that is.
For you non-subscribers, I’m considering a ONE-TIME bundle package on past issues. It doesn’t come with any of the extra perks subscribers got, but I’ll make it fair.
In the meantime, calling all Tunies to get your August feeding at https://www.tunesmithtips.com/newsletter/
I doubt it would ever happen, but…
If you procrastinated, waited to get your July TuneBooster… fair warning… in a few days from now it’ll be gone.
What can I say?
August’s will be up instead.
So, consider this your due warning the clock is ticking. Tick-tock, tick-tock…
Meanwhile. August’s issue will have things like…
- Why my dad’s nasty sump pump situation is something you’d want to stick a straw in, wrap your lips around, and suck until your eyeballs smack the back of your skull when writing your next song.
- When a study hall fart smells like roses for writing a killer tune.
- How those cheap pizzas in your supermarket’s frozen section shouldn’t be your lyric.
- Why if you’re this kind of songwriter you are seen as a fake, a heretic, and you will definitely piss-off some writers… and yet I totally endorse that’s precisely what you should do.
- What statement in the Bible is a bold-faced lie, but even Christian songwriters get God’s blessing believing it.
- Plus some more stuff…

“They don’t write like that anymore… no they just don’t write like that anymore.”
Way back in the 70s Greg Kihn band had a hit talkin’ how they don’t write break up songs like that anymore.
He might have well been talkin’ about an endangered species of song forms instead of breakup tunes. If he would have, it’d be a prophetic word for today’s songwriting.
You can’t swing a guitar 306-degrees by its strap without hitting a verse-chorus or verse-chorus-bridge-chorus song.
What about one of the best, in my humble but spot on opinion, song forms ever gracing the ears of listeners?
We used to hear them all the time. The radio was littered with them. Not these days.
Good news though, you can use it to your advantage.
Find out which song form I’m rappin’ ‘bout in July’s Tune Booster.
We’ll talk a bit about what makes it the form it is, and how parts of it differ from other song forms.
We’ll even take some motherly advice… or if not, we’ll see how my accountant’s financial advice is applied to this song form.
