A Very Thorough Tutorial on Garage Band as Well as a Great Introduction to Logic Pro
I was struggling with Logic Pro, so I decided to watch this tutorial on Garage Band. Eli really considered his audience while preparing these tutorials as they are geared towards beginners. Now that I have this foundation, I'm ready to delve back into Logic Pro. Great Job Eli!

GarageBand I thought it was for Beginners.
This has showed me that even I can use Garage Band to get some pretty cool groves down and it is great for building ideas. Hope I can duplicate them in StudioOne.
