Odie Blackmon's "The Craft of Writing Hit Songs" is the first instructional songwriting DVD. Directed by Gandulf Hennig ("Gram Parsons: Fallen Angel"), the video feels more like a private songwriting session than a classroom tutorial.

Odie covers the songwriting elements like melody, lyrics, structure, and form and relates them to songs from different musical genres. Whether you hope to work on Music Row or just want to strum an original tune by the campfire, "The Craft of Writing Hit Songs" offers the tools for all skill levels.

The DVD also comes with an instructional booklet that breaks down song forms and other songwriting essentials by showing lyrical examples from Odie's work and identifying other popular songs from different genres for further study.

The DVD can be purchased for $29.95. Click "Buy The DVD" above to pick up your copy today!
