Ten BIG Reasons To Hire This Program Right Now!
Add More Might To What You Write With Lyricist's Onscreen Rhyming Dictionary - Songs can rise and fall on good rhymes and rhyme schemes.
With Lyricist's 11,000+ entries, including slang, you'll have a wide assortment of choices to give your song a more original edge and give it the potential to be even more dramatic and more emotional.
With its focussed rhyme set it synergizes with the rhyming dictionary already in your head - the majority of it's word associations are perfect rhymes.
To get extended or near rhymes just pick a like sounding word and run Lyricist's Rhymer.
For example, if you want to rhyme the word "time," click on Lyricist's Rhymer button and gets lots of perfect rhymes: Lime; slime, climb, dime, etc., and then to get a near or soft rhyme you could try the word "pie." Type in "pie" and then hit the Rhymer again and and get cry, defy, die, drive-by, and 50 + other near rhymes
You can easily find just the right rhyme and may even come upon a word that adds layers of meaning to your original idea.
And since it's frequently used - the Rhymer button is one of the BIG buttons along Lyricist's top tool bar for quick clicking.
And whether you're on a desktop or laptop you save not having to lumber with a tomb of a rhyming dictionary on your lap.
Stretch Your Originality And Get The Meaning You're After With Just The Right Word - Using Lyricist's Handy Thesaurus - You can deepen your point or your song's twist with just the right word.
There are literally thousands of words to choose from and having a thesaurus handy puts all the pertinent choices right a your fingertips aiding and stimulating your creative flow.
Again, whether you're sitting at a desktop computer or lounging with your laptop you'll save not having to lumber with a tomb of a thesaurus in your lap :)
And like the Rhymer button above - the Thesaurus button is one of the BIG buttons along Lyricist's top tool bar for fast reference.
- Quickly Catch And Jot Down Notes And Information About Your Song In The Song Folder You're Working On - No longer lose a clever lyric idea or chord change, you might want to try in your chorus, again.
"...my biggest problem with song writing is the lyrics and Lyricist makes it so much easier for me."
"You people should try it. I was lucky enough to be on the beta team for this product.
I think my biggest problem with song writing is the lyrics and Lyricist makes it so much easier for me."
Tim Sharp - Smithers British Columbia, Canada
Enjoy Guitar And Piano-Keyboard Chord Style Charting Abilities - Lyricist makes it easy to enter either guitar chord symbols (fret finger board charts - guitar glyphs) and or standard chord symbols for guitar and piano-keyboard or other instruments along with your lyrics. Or create chords only charts separately.
Lyricist makes it fast to prepare your songs in today's standard chord based lead sheets.
Chord based lead sheets are typical musical shorthand song representations that today's songwriters use. This approach is based on chord guitar and chord piano or chord style methods.
It's shorthand because it saves you from writing out your musical arrangement in standard musical notation format.
Chord style lead sheets are akin to the format you'll find in music fake books. With chord style lead sheets you often can get your entire song on one page of paper. Obviously one advantage is that this is much less cumbersome than multiple pages of sheet music.
Also with chord style arrangements you can switch between piano-keyboard chords, guitar chords or the Nashville Numbers System (more on this next up).
Readily Prepare Your Songs' Chord Progressions With The Nashville Numbers System - Lyricist's Nashville Number System support enables you to quickly convert your chord charts and arrangements from any standard key into the Nashville Numbers format making it easy for players to transcribe the song into any key - on the fly!
The Nashville Number System is quite often used in producing country song demos particularly in Nashville.
Nashville Numbers allow musicians to easily play in one key or another usually depending on the best key for the singer without having to rewrite your chord charts.
Easily add an extra chord chart of your song with the Nashville Number System when you're sending your song off to a Nashville demo studio or going there yourself to demo it.
And note that good musicians anywhere can interpret a Nashville Number chart so it can be useful in many situations.
Easily Transpose Your Songs To Any Other Key - The Song Transposition feature allows you to quickly and easily transpose your songs between musical keys and also back and forth between Piano and Guitar style chord charts and even into the Nashville Numbers System!
When you want to change the chords of your song to another key and you want the chords of the new key to appear (verses just numbers like with the Nashville Number System) simply use this feature.
This helps to prepare your song in any key you need quickly and writes in the new chords for you.
Real handy when your singer calls at the last minute and wants to sing in F and your song is in C.
A great alternative when the Nashville Number System is not familiar to your musicians or singers.
"...Lyricist is WONDERFUL! It is a big help for me."
"Lyricist is WONDERFUL! It is a big help for me. Now I don't have to worry about all the cluttered notebooks.
I can keep ALL of my ideas in one place. (I tend to lose pieces of paper!)."
Jeff Baxter - Louisville, Kentucky, USA
Fly Your Files Across Town Or Around The World With The Media File Launch - If you have an MP3, WAV, MIDI, or RA file of the song you're working on, even a rough mix, or even a scanned file of the song's copyright form, or any file that relates to your song - link the file to the song and launch the file with one click.
It's mailed out through your email program in an instant.
Here's how it works - Lyricist opens the file using your computer's default program for that file type. No need to switch to Explorer or your Desktop to find that file and then go through the process of opening it. Just click and go.
Share your songs quickly via the Internet. Indeed, more and more song demos are being accepted over the Internet verses having to send a cd through the mail. As Yogi Berra might have said, "The future is here."
Keep It All Organized With The Four Different Song Views - Lyricist features four different ways to view your work.
The Song Lyrics view is the basic lyric writing and editing window. Chord Charting lets you add guitar chord symbols and or standard chord symbols for piano or other instruments to your lyrics. Also switch into the Nashville Arrange when needed. And the Song Arrange view lets you view your chord progressions without the lyrics.
All views contain the basic tool bar with the rhyming dictionary button, thesaurus button, etc. across the top of the screen for quick access and usage.
You'll readily stay organized with all the items you'll need to write your song, to prepare your song for a demo session or for playing your song live. Or simply for your own reference particularly to practice or record your song at your own leisure.
Create First Rate Professional Looking Lyric And Lead Sheets Or Run Off And Write In Color And Crazy Fonts And Stimulate Your Creativity With Programmable Text Styles - Lyricist is loaded with Style buttons for Title, Copyright, Chorus, Verse, Bridge, and even user-defined Styles.
For example simply select your Title text and click the Title Style button and it saves the text style you created from then on.
All this makes it easy to create a consistent, professional look and saves time as you can quickly format the layout and look of all your new songs afterward. Change it around anytime you want.
Or anytime go crazy with color and font styles as you write but if you send out your lyric or lead sheet - black and white with standard, readable fonts like Arial or Times New Roman are usually easier to read :)
File Your Copyright Immediately Online 24/7- Lyricist's Online File Copyright feature takes you to the website of Official Software, where you can copyright your Songs.
When you need or want to copyright your songs quickly you can process an application immediately online, anytime of the day or night, by simply completing the step-by-step online forms.
Your copyright is processed directly with the US copyright office which ends up protecting your work not only in the US but in 70 countries and growing around the world.

But we've only just begun to dig into the capabilities of this program!
Now we'll go through the next pile of writing help boosters that pack on more levels of support to your songwriting process and productivity:
NEXT - STACK THE DECK WITH THIS HAND OF HELPERS
1. Chord Creation Flexibility - Lyricist allows you the ability to construct and voice chords any way you want.
Need the suspended or diminished version of a chord - no problem. Lyricist has easy drop downs for building your chords from the ground up.
Once your chord is set just click it into your arrangement and build the next chord.
2. Even More Chord Flexibility With Chord Editing - Need to tweak a chord with a certain extra note or prefer a different fingering on your guitar - then modify the settings to get it just right.
You may not need it but sometimes you just want things a certain way and chord editing gives you that freedom.
3. Go From Lost To Found With The Magic Of Chord Wizards - At one time or another you may stumble across a great-sounding chord while writing or practicing and not know what it is.
When this happens simply plug the finger positions into Lyricist's Guitar Chord Wizard or Piano Wizard and let it identify the chord for you!
It tells you instantly what chord you're playing and the Chord Wizards provide a list of alternate chords you could create by simply changing a note or two.
Once you've got your chord identified, you can insert it directly into your song.
4. View And Even Write On More Than One Song At A Time - Lyricist's cascade feature let's you load up multiple songs simultaneously on screen for an easy look at multiple songs.
You can quickly switch between songs or even have a couple of different versions of the same song you're trying to decide between.
All the tools, Rhymer, Thesaurus, etc. are all fully functional for whatever song you click to the top.
Write on one song and when your inspiration runs out click on another one and work that for a while.

5. Works For All Types Of Songwriting - Whether you write country, pop, rap or rock - Lyricist can help.
The fundamentals of popular songwriting are the same across the board and Lyricist is based on these fundamentals.
So children's and Christian writers and hip-hop and musical theatre writers are all helped by Lyricist's tool chest. World music fits in nicely too.
Pretty much all contemporary song formats work well in Lyricist.

RTF files can be viewed and edited in a number of word processing programs such as MS-Word.
Readily Tie-In Other Programs To Lyricist - Via the top menu Tools choice just scroll down and click on Link Applications and load up to five other programs you commonly use in your songwriting.
For example for your music writing and recording you can handily link in your sequencer program like Sonar or Power Tracks and if you power boost your lyric and melody writing you could hook in programs like MasterWriter and a brainstorming program like ParaMind.
Any programs that you utilize as you write can be tied in and set to load in a mouse click.
Having all your programs linked together makes you organized right from the start, saves time and helps to keep you in the creative flow.
Lyricist Is Designed To Help Your Creative Process Too...
Many master woodworkers and other types of fine craftsmen are known to have the most finely laid out tool shops.
All of their tools have a clear purpose and are set in just the right place to be readily accessed at just the right point in the creative process in such a way as not to impede the creative flow.
From these masters come great pieces of work that are indeed artful.
Such is the story and the design of Lyricist in the way that it works for your songwriting.
"I spent hours putting this jazz ballad I wrote into Lyricist. It is quite beautiful in the printed form..."
"I spent hours putting this jazz ballad I wrote into Lyricist. It is quite beautiful in the printed form, five pages of lyrics with chord diagrams. Many of the chords are custom made.
I have not found another program that makes it possible to make custom chord diagrams. I appreciate that feature."
Lyricist could well be considered a tune master's tool box that has been thoughtfully designed and built by songwriters for songwriters and refined three times since its beginning version.
Lyricist is intuitively at hand for providing a self contained word processor for starting your song's lyric to ready sets of rhymes and synonyms to readily getting to just the right chords for the mood of your song.
With this direct access to these essential tools the chance for distraction is minimized and your primary concentration can stay on the whole idea of your song as you build it.
TAKE YOUR SONGWRITING CRAFT TO A HIGHER LEVEL BY CLICKING HERE
And use Lyricist to polish-up those rough diamonds you've probably got sitting around...
As we've been discussing Lyricist is a tremendous package of the "must haves" for writing new songs but it works the same for resurrecting your unfinished songs.
Load your lyric into Lyricist and go to work on refreshing your rhymes, tweaking your adjectives and story line and see your old forgotten dusty Picaso be reborn.
So what if you wrote your draft five or even ten years ago. Classic songs last decades so even if it's a neglected oldie in your portfolio it's still a youngster in the scheme of a great song's life.
In any case even with a little re-writing you'll end up with a brand new song to the world that you'd already likely poured hours over - you just didn't realize just how close you were to having it finished.
Check out what one songwriter had to say about this...
"This rewriting/editing process has been greatly helped by Lyricist! Sometimes that fresh approach leads to something that is literally re-invented..."
"Lately, along with writing new songs from the ground up, I have resurrected some songs that I never quite felt right about... This rewriting/editing process has been greatly helped by Lyricist! Sometimes that fresh approach leads to something that is literally reinvented, and the song lives.
It's true that books on songwriting and even songwriting software will not make one a songwriter, but if one has it in them as something they need to do (like it is with most songwriters), a program like Lyricist sweeps away some of the "housekeeping" details and that helping hand can, in and of itself, tend to inspire you to do more.
WE are music, and we write the songs. Your program and your efforts help to make that so.
