    ...is a great book by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco that you should go buy.
    And it is also part of a short video series I'm going to do on the exercises he features in the book.

    Here's exercise 1. It's a fun way to get the creative juices flowing and only takes 5-10 minutes to generate some cool ideas.

    Brilliant idea, Steven. I'll tune in for sure. I finished the book the day before FAWM started. Loved it.

    I liked that book. If you've been hanging around songwriting talks and seminars and whatever the exercises won't be anything new exactly, but I like the way Tweedy presents it. Really fun book.

    Don’t spoil the ending for me. Ha!

    That’s a great video - will watch these for sure. Thanks! I’ve just got the book, but only on page 17. There seems to be no time for reading in February for some reason...
