- [Narrator] Traditionally, when you recorded a song,…you had to have its arrangement already worked out,…meaning you had to know how the Intro, Verses, Choruses,…Bridges, Ending, and other sections of your song…were gonna be organized before you started recording,…because changing the order of these sections afterwards,…was pretty difficult, especially before computers,…but with Garage Band, if you decide after recording,…that you prefer the song to start with the Chorus…before it gets into the First Verse,…you can easily make that change simply…by dragging the section of your song around,…instead of having to re-record the entire thing,…and we do this with something called the Arrangement track,…so this song we've been working with,…we have an Intro, a Verse, a Chorus, a Second Verse,…a Guitar Solo, a Middle Eight, a Final Verse,…and a Final Chorus, and then Outro.…
Now, the first step is to identify…these sections in the Arrangement track,…to do this, we go up to the Track Menu,…and choose Show Arrangement Track,…
