So... I was doing some Googling around. I know about the blog series being done up here on using Garageband, which by the way are phenominal, and by absolutely no means do I want to underestimate the job done by that poster. They are absolutely incredible! That being said however, I found something on a podcast called Cool Blind Tech. Not to be confused with the really old podcast that used to be around called Blind! Cool Tech. Don't get confused. This is Cool! Blind Tech. Anyway, I found this link.
I found part 1 through part 3 of this series, and let me tell you guys: Oh? my, God! This was exactly what I needed. I would honestly have even paid! for something like this.
Garageband always has been so difficult for me to get my head around. I don't know why, but it's very very difficult for me. I'm definitely way more a ProTools guy. Anyway, I am stoked! I went through all 3 parts I could find, and I really really feel like I'm finally starting to get a handle on things. However, at the end of part 3, the guy says he's going to pick up in the next segment with editing, loops, Drummer, etc. That is really where I am lacking in my understanding of how to use GB. I was desperetly hoping that I could either find the remaining files in this series, or at the very least, someone who has done a series specifically on editing, working with loops, using Drummer tracks, and maybe a real real basic intro to using plugins. I dono if this guy just stopped, and never did more after part 3 as he said he would, or what. Again, if anyone would be willing to work with me one on one at these specific things, I'll be happy to pay you via PayPal for your time. I know Keith Reety has done some stuff, and about his list for Logic users, but... that's not an option for me. We'll just leave it there.
I'm *really!* *really!* hoping someone here can help, as I am really excited. I finally feel like maybe I can actually learn this. I don't wanna ruin my chances now, as I'm already this far along.
