Chapter 5. GarageBand > Compose Your First Song

Compose Your First Song

Yes, it's possible to go from musically challenged to brilliant composer in one day or less. Possibly much less. Just locate some pre-recorded loops in the Loop Browser that you like, then drag them around in the Timeline in any order that sounds pleasing. If you want to juice it up, experiment with adding more tracks with other instruments, fade the volume in and out at key points, then add some effects or adjust existing effects.

If you haven't already created a new song file, see page 220. The following pages explain in detail how to find loops, add tracks, place loops in tracks, arrange and mix your song, then export it to an iTunes playlist.
