Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the arrangement track, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
…Now let's take a look at a feature in Garage Band called the Arrangement Track.…Traditionally, when you recorded a song, you had to have its arrangement already…worked out, meaning you had to know…how the intro, versus, chorus, bridges, ending,…and other sections of your song were…going to 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 sections of your song…around instead of having to re-record the entire thing.…
So, in this song we've been working with, we have an intro, a verse, a chorus, a…second verse, a guitar solo, a middle 8, a…final verse, and a final chorus, and an outro.…The first step is to identify these sections in the arrangement track.…In order to do so, we need to go…to the track menu and choose Show Arrangement Track.…
