And of course, search up and read that manual. There’s so much in there that it’s a must to read to make heads or tails of 80% of the stuff. The only thing that really screws me up is the use of symbols for every menu and a lot of the editing techniques are.. clunky. But for a functioning recording studio on my phone that’s pretty much freeware, I’m not going to complain too much. But really, read that manual. It looks daunting to read, and the way it’s formatted online is kind of awkward with it’s links all over the place, but it actually doesn’t take that long and it’s a must read with this powerful music maker.


How you import the song to the computer?

Thank you!!! As always your tutorials are on point. And if I may say so to others reading, I just finished reading Patrick’s ebook bundle for GarageBand Mac and it’s top notch. It helped me edit my project in ways I hadn’t known about previously. Check out his website.

Barry McCormick says:

Asked before, but no answer…loops don’t follow chord changes, so how can you use loops in songs with chord changes?

This was very helpful and everything was taught at a very good pace. You explained things at the perfect speed for me to be able to absorb it all haha. I’m excited to give this a try… thank you!

Straightforward and helpful, as usual! I’d love to see more content about GB for iPad. I recently started using it more because I’m on the road lately.

Patrick, have you found that seeing the guitar fretboard on the screen like that changes the way you think about writing guitar parts? Something about it being laid out in front of me more like a piano has an effect on the way I see it, and I tend to think of the instrument differently.
