    Hey Graham, I got the songwriting modules to improve my writing output. I use to write at least 16 bars and a hook from about middle school until the end of high school. Life isn't as easy as it once was and I have limited time so I figured I'd give it a shot. Haven't even started the modules just been studying the bonus items and references you have and already can tell that the modules will be life changing. Thanks for all you do, looking forward to the modules!!!
