Getting started with GarageBand ’09

2
00:00:03,069 --> 00:00:05,839
Welcome to GarageBand ’09

3
00:00:05,839 --> 00:00:07,607
When you first launch GarageBand

4
00:00:07,607 --> 00:00:11,044
you'll see a project window.

5
00:00:11,044 --> 00:00:15,582
Here you can create new projects for anything
for piano, guitar or keyboards

6
00:00:15,582 --> 00:00:18,651
to podcasts and iPhone ringtones.

7
00:00:18,651 --> 00:00:21,855
You can also quickly create a song
with Magic GarageBand,

8
00:00:21,855 --> 00:00:25,825
from a cool blue song to a traditional rock track.

9
00:00:25,825 --> 00:00:27,293
And with "Learn to Play"

10
00:00:27,293 --> 00:00:30,497
learning to play an instrument is easier than ever.

11
00:00:30,497 --> 00:00:33,099
Here you can choose what type
of instrument you want to learn

12
00:00:33,099 --> 00:00:35,235
and which lesson to take.

13
00:00:35,235 --> 00:00:39,472
Lesson one for both guitar and piano
are already installed on your Mac

14
00:00:39,472 --> 00:00:42,108
and you can download the rest
from the lessons store.

15
00:00:42,108 --> 00:00:46,312
To start your lesson just select it
and then click "Choose".

16
00:00:47,180 --> 00:00:50,683
When the lesson opens
it'll automatically begin playing.

17
00:00:50,683 --> 00:00:52,519
[Teacher speaking]

18
00:00:52,519 --> 00:00:55,522
In guitar lesson one the teacher
covers the basics

19
00:00:55,522 --> 00:00:59,292
including hand position, tuning and technique.

20
00:00:59,292 --> 00:01:03,463
You can jump directly to different
sections by clicking on the timeline.

21
00:01:04,464 --> 00:01:06,266
[Teacher speaking]

22
00:01:06,266 --> 00:01:09,869
And you can repeat parts that you want practice
by clicking the cycle button.

23
00:01:09,869 --> 00:01:14,140
[Teacher speaking]

24
00:01:14,140 --> 00:01:17,444
Open the setup window to choose
to view notation, its score names,

25
00:01:17,477 --> 00:01:22,215
chord grids, tab or standard notation.

26
00:01:22,215 --> 00:01:24,250
And when you're ready, click "Play song"

27
00:01:24,250 --> 00:01:28,388
to play the entire song along with the teacher.

28
00:01:28,388 --> 00:01:30,723
At the bottom of the window the guitar animates

29
00:01:30,723 --> 00:01:36,362
to show you which strings to play
and how to place your fingers.

30
00:01:36,362 --> 00:01:39,299
You can slow down part of the song
to make it easier to learn,

31
00:01:39,299 --> 00:01:43,503
then increase the speed until you can play
along with the original tempo.

32
00:01:44,904 --> 00:01:49,209
The volume slider lets you control
the overall volume of the lesson.

33
00:01:50,176 --> 00:01:52,245
You can even learn how to play
songs directly from

34
00:01:52,245 --> 00:01:54,581
some of today's most popular artists.

35
00:01:54,581 --> 00:01:56,883
The "Lesson Store" offers artist lessons,

36
00:01:56,883 --> 00:01:58,918
just choose a song, purchased it

37
00:01:58,918 --> 00:02:00,887
and it's downloaded to your Mac.

38
00:02:00,887 --> 00:02:04,157
When it's ready, you can find the lesson
in "Learn to Play".

39
00:02:04,157 --> 00:02:06,860
Artist lessons work the same way
that the basic lessons do.

40
00:02:14,167 --> 00:02:19,739
[Teacher speaking]

41
00:02:19,739 --> 00:02:21,541
You can skip to a certain parts of the lesson,

42
00:02:25,411 --> 00:02:26,446
[Teacher speaking]

43
00:02:26,446 --> 00:02:33,052
[Piano music]

44
00:02:33,052 --> 00:02:38,224
and you can slow down the playback
to make it easier to practice.

45
00:02:38,224 --> 00:02:41,961
But the best part of artist lessons
is playing along.

46
00:02:44,063 --> 00:02:46,599
[Play music]

47
00:02:51,938 --> 00:03:00,446
Using the mixer you can solo the artist track
to practice along with the artist.

48
00:03:00,446 --> 00:03:03,750
Or turn the band back on
and the artists track off,

49
00:03:03,750 --> 00:03:06,085
so you can play along with the band.

50
00:03:09,222 --> 00:03:13,293
With GarageBand, learning to play
has never been easier.
