    GarageBand for the amateur - Looking for advice
    Hello,

    I'm here to get some feedback about my homemade songs all done with GarageBand.

    Here's 2 songs I put on Youtube recently :

    http://youtu.be/1BzMouW3xFM

    http://youtu.be/TM9epImIbTs

    It may sounds electronic, but the music was all done with an iPad. It becomes a useful tool for me when a melody comes into my mind and i'm not at home.

    Could you tell me what you think of it, please?
    Do the lyrics make sense?

    Thanks by advance.

    (Sorry about my french accent, I'm working on it)

    Nono.

    I liked it! Kinda reminded me of The Nits (from Holland). It's obviously not a studio production but it really gets the point and melody across just fine. Excellent use of backing vocals.

    Thank you for your comment!

    Is the meaning of the song clear to an english listener?

    Maybe You Don't Care - Song Created With GarageBand (With vocals)
    Hello,

    here's a new song I wish I could have some feedback on :

    Never Get Older - GarageBand HomeMade Song + Voices Mix - YouTube

    I've tried to create harmonies just with my voice (and a piano to stay tuned).

    Sorry for the french accent.

    Thanks by advance for your comments.

    Nono.

    The wording of the lyrics was occasionally a little unusual (for a native English speaker) but the meaning was clear.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Gotta say not bad at all. I never really got into GB, but it keeps amazing me the quality that people keep coming up with, and reminds me every time, what a powerful tool it real is.
    Keep it up, you seem to be on the right track

    The music is half made on the ipad and I added the guitar later on garageband osx.

    What do you think of the quality?
