Book Description

15 Jun 2010 Easy-to-Use
Finding the right rhyme can be excruciating, songwriters too often choosing ridiculous words in desperation. This is an invaluable resource for any budding songwriter or even an experienced lyricist with writer's block. Featuring tips on songwriting, the book focuses on the types of rhyme and assonance (end rhymes, last syllable rhymes, double rhymes, beginning rhymes, first syllable rhymes) for a range of popular styles. Arranged phonetically and drawn from a variety of musical 'dialects', from rock and pop to folk and hip-hop, this is the quick and simple guide you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars rhyming dictionary 20 Mar 2013
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
perfect for someone who wants to write songs and find words that rhyme with your lyrics/sentence.
the pages on specific words are very helpful for options and can give you some good ideas on what topics to write about.
i bought this for myself and i bring with me for other fellow songwriters to use (mostly beginners)
and it has helped them get into the spirit of writing songs.
it has chapters dedicated to rhyme sounds (ain=pain,blame,tame)
huge section at the back for tion rhymes

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy size and very helpful! 27 May 2014
By Alex M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are into lyric writing and need a prompt or quick references this is for you. You can almost take it anywhere and though I have the kindle version also, flicking through is much easier with the paperback copy.

Good Luck

I bought this book as a present for my songwriting son. He described it as "very useful". Alas. as I do not write songs, I cannot add my opinion of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I have seen 22 Aug 2012
By Mitch C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This Rhyming Dictionary is one of the best I have seen. I use the Kindle version, might be only one available now, and it is great. So easy to move around the book as needed, finding the sounds you are looking for. And there are so many interesting word ideas. I can not write songs anymore without having this at my side. Just fantastic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken - do not buy! Maybe try the paper version. 16 Oct 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book itself seems ok - at least that part of it which is readable.
Unfortunately, a rhyming dictionary relies on its index.
This Kindle book is formatted so that there are exactly two columns for each letter of the alphabet, so that the last entry at the bottom of the first column for E is "each" and the top of the next column is "entwine", with all words whose beginnings are between "ead" and "ens" being cut off on an invisible / unreadable bottom of the page.
Not worth the 4 bucks that you could spend on a paper book.
