Garageband Tutorial Video Soundtrack Crash Course

I put together this 20 minute video to help non-musicians create soundtracks for their YouTube videos using the royalty-free loops in Apple’s Garageband. Using anybody else’s music in your videos can result in copyright infringement. Let’s face it, unless it’s a high budget production where you can afford to pay somebody for a license, you’re better off building the soundtrack yourself.

You’re probably here because you watched the video on YouTube. If not, see the video below. I encourage you to click on the YouTube logo in the player. It will send you to the actual page of the video where you can select to watch in high definition 720p. Trust me, it makes a big difference.

Furthermore, after the video there are instructions on how to download for the actual working file of the project for free. Edit: As of right now (Feb 6, 2011) the file is not available to download yet. I will be setting that up very soon. In the meantime, you can contact me if you want the file right away.
