More GarageBand Content and Summer Sale -- Jeff Tolbert, the author of our two Take Control ebooks about GarageBand, is seemingly inexhaustible when it comes to telling people about his favorite music-making program from Apple. After he finished updating his ebooks to cover GarageBand 2, he went on to write additional articles about GarageBand for various Web sites based on his experience writing the ebooks. He does a great job with the right-brain/left-brain work of explaining how to work creatively in a digital environment, so those of you who want to keep your creativity fresh while making tunes in GarageBand should be sure to check out his other pieces.
