Murphy's Laws of Songwriting: The Book

Ralph Murphy is offering APRA AMCOS members a discounted price for his highly successful book. Usually $39.95AUS, APRA AMCOS members can purchase the current edition for $30.00. Simply email us at

Revised in 2013, the book discusses the formidable goal for any songwriter of achieving a ‘hit song’. Never more so than in the 21st century, catching the ear of the monumentally distracted, fragmented listener has never been more difficult. Getting their attention, inviting them in to your song and keeping them there for long enough for your song to become "their song" requires more than being just a "good" songwriter.

Murphy's Laws of Songwriting "The Book" arms the songwriter for success by demystifying the process and opening the door to serious professional songwriting. Hall of fame songwriter Paul Williams said in his review of the book "If there was a hit songwriters secret handshake then Murphy would probably have included it."

The Author Ralph Murphy, songwriter, has been successful for five decades. Consistently charting songs in an ever-changing musical environment makes him a member of that very small group of professionals who make a living doing what they love to do. Add to that the platinum records as a producer, the widely acclaimed Murphy's Laws of Songwriting articles used as part of curriculum at colleges, universities, and by songwriter organizations, his success as the publisher and co-owner of the extremely successful Picalic Group of Companies and you see a pattern of achievement based on more than luck.

The Open Tuning Chord Book for Guitar

“What a super book, this is such fun. I could use this for the next album.”
David Bowie 2002

First published in 1994 and now in it’s third edition, The Open Tuning Chord Book For Guitar by Brendan Gallagher gives guitarists working in standard tuning a basic introduction into open tune playing. Though commonly used for slide playing open tunings have become increasingly popular for their unusual and rich voicings. The book contains chord shapes for over 300 chords in the two most popular tunings – Vastopol (or Open D) and Spanish (or Open G) – with a page per key. For example, turn to page 17 and there are twelve chords in Open D tuning in the key of G – major, minor, 6th, dom 7th, diminished, augmented, minor 6th, major 7th, minor 7th, 7th sus 4, 7th flat 9 and 11th.

The book includes a short history of the origin of open tuning, tips on tuning and string set up, a glossary of favourite chords and recommended listening plus music scores for four popular songs using open tuning chord shapes. It’s 30 cm x 10cm (12 inches x 4 inches) size makes it a snug fit in the neck of a standard guitar case.

Over the years The Open Tuning Chord Book For Guitar has found it's way into the guitar cases of musicians like David Bowie, Peter Buck (REM), Lee Ritenour, Arlo Guthrie, David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Daniel Johns (Silverchair), Paul Kelly, Paul Weller, PJ Harvey, Chris Cheney (Living End), Murray ‘Red Wiggle’ Cook, Lloyd Cole, Tim Rogers… and everyday guitarists from Ireland to Lithuania.
