This specialized GarageBand for iOS (iPad) resource serves to bridge the gap of some of its Smart Instrument functions with the missing music notation not included in GarageBand for iOS. Students of all ages can use these one or two finger techniques to enhance their use of drums and Smart Strings to explore the advanced performance styles. These techniques are transferable to other Smart Instruments, all to individuate each student's project creation, a cut above the rest.
Each page can serve as an introduction to further exploration in the above mentioned areas to include:
-pattern building - ostinato
-rhythm exploration - beat, subdivision
-pizzicato (plucked) versus arco (bow) strings - contrast
-chord progressions and inversions
-expressive string playing for film score effects to use in drama, narratives, soundscapes, and other Arts areas
