Please check out my MK/DS forum:

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

MK: "There's really no formula for it, if I knew it I would tell you". End of masterclass. ;D

You're not to far from the truth... In fact, judging by their trailers, a lot of those teachers actually can't really teach :lol
But it's another thing to love about creating process. Often masters in their craft can't explain a thing about what they do.

That's pure instinct when it comes to geniuses. They don't follow a formula.

You can't say the same about people like James Horner, Robert Lange or T Bone Burnett though. These guys as well as many others use songwriting strategies to hook people, almost an equation.

And in the days of the creation of the Great American Songbook and Motown songwriters was working in offices 9 to 5 every day and had literally books with possible titles only. It's crazy, but no wonder their songs will probably never die.

I noticed that too.  He was rather specific with his answer.  I think we can let our imaginations run wild with this....
