Customer Reviews

GarageBand great help

This is a great help when starting with GarageBand...an easy read, well organized, complete, very logical and well thought out. Well worth the price, with plentiful information...

Garage Band's best friend

This book as really helpful. For 99 cents it was a steal. It does have parts in it that was over my head. There again I'm not a musician. Most of it I could understand, not all of it. I wish they had Garage Band for Dummies. That is more my style. This book can get technical at times only as a whole I felt it was worth the price. If you are fairly intelligent this book is for you. If not than just read the tutorial that came with the app. If you want some what more detail buy this book.

Useful but GarageBand Is Pretty Self-Explanatory Itself

I purchased this about a week after installing GarageBand hoping to discover the "advanced/more technical" elements within GarageBand. And while it provides a thorough explanation of how the various features such as Smart Instruments, Connections, and other tips, I found a majority of the information to be more like a review of features I was already aware of and not the "secrets to GarageBand" so to speak I was looking for. Given it's price and the information it does provide it's hard to go less than 4 stars, but I found that in the week prior to having this guide, the program is so intuitive and beautifully laid out, a user guide really isn't needed (which is a testament to GarageBand app itself). So while this will more than likely provide a few tips, chances are if you just play around within the app you will have about the same knowledge as you would taking the 20 mins reading this. It's well put together and a step up from Apples Support site, but GarageBand is just one of those apps that really does not leave you scratching your head looking for answers.
