Let's face it, for many beginners and amateur musicians new to computer-based music making, much of today's top-of-the-range recording software is far too complicated to operate. It's not like that with GarageBand. The complicated stuff remains hidden from view, with just the basic controls on display. The interface is friendly and inviting rather than off-putting, and capturing your ideas is quick and intuitive.
Keep it Simple with GarageBand contains a series of easy music making projects for beginners and amateur musicians. Follow these simple projects and you'll not only learn how to use GarageBand effectively, you'll also pick up tons of insider tips on songwriting, constructing tunes and pro-style audio production along the way: all explained in easy-to-understand terminology. Each project is preceded by on-topic, background information explaining just what you will be doing and why.
