Songwriting With GarageBand

This is an interesting series of articles on songwriting and using a Mac to do it. It's not the approach I'm currently using, but I've used similar methods in the past, albeit with sequencers and four-track cassette recorders!

In Tunesmith: Inside the Art of Songwriting, he discusses recording vs. songwriting, and says, "I eventually came to the conclusion that writing and recording are as oil is to water. Church and state. I could go further and say mutually destructive—but short of that I choose to think of them as a bicameral legislature, a system of checks and balances. Each area of expertise influences the other but for each to function perfectly perhaps the left hand should not know what the right hand is doing."

Still, I'll keep reading these articles and probably continue to link to them here.
