Amateurs and professionals alike can use GarageBand to produce and share great music. In GarageBand '09 Essential Training, composer Damian Allen shows how GarageBand has broadened the spectrum of musical possibilities and made composing more accessible, even for beginners. He explains the basics of how GarageBand's tracks work with the loops provided, then discusses recording live instruments, working with the new virtual guitar rigs, creating custom loops, and playing GarageBand's built-in software instruments.
