Garageband fun. I think I just keep recreating the same ditty.

This is the Martin direct into the iPad. Recorded yesterday in a 25 minute window of free time.

I played around with GarageBand on the old iPad this weekend. Two guitars (pictured), a bunch of tracks, and three chords.

I’m not at all sure how this happened, but I’ve somehow got two SoundCloud user names, with the same login credentials. Weird. Everything seems to be still working, at least.
I found this out because I exported this sort of ugly snippet directly from GarageBand into SoundCloud last night.

You can go over to somebody’s house and work on music. You used to have to book studio time before. And the other thing is – and this is a curse and a blessing – you can fix ANYTHING now! That’s great because it’s really fun, but if we’d have had digital recording when we were doing Hotel California we’d still be working on it! At some point you have to be done. This technology is like bait that gets thrown out in front of you, and you end up fixing things that don’t really need fixing. They’re not wrong, they’re just different than what you planned.

I was inspired to plug the Starcaster into the iPad last night, and I recorded a few short tracks. This morning, on the way to work, it occurred to me that the ditty needed a bit of bass. So I pulled out the iPad right there on the bus and added another track with the “smart bass” functionality in GarageBand.
And that, friends, is a great way to liven your morning commute. Here’s the end result.
