Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Playing Smart Strings, part of GarageBand for iOS Essential Training.
The final Smart instrument we are going to take a look at here is Smart Strings. …Now Smart Strings didn't originally ship with the first release of GarageBand, it came with …an update in March 2012. …So if you have purchased GarageBand before then and haven't yet updated, make sure you …go to App Store and update, so you will see Smart Strings appear when you open GarageBand. …And what Smart Strings does is it gives you an entire string section right here in your iPad. …As with the other Smart Instruments you will see eight chord strips here in the interface …and here they're all divided into four sections.…
You can play these a number of different ways. …Tapping in the chord strip gives you a pizzicato sound. …The four different sections of the chord strip give you different inversions for that chord. …(music playing) …You can also slide your finger along the chord strip like a bow. …(music playing) …The more intense you slide, the louder the sound will get. …You can use this technique to create swells in the music. …
