I Heart GarageBand

I finally got goofing with Apple’s GarageBand application in the initial hope of creating an inaugural podcast… but at this microcosm of my life I find I have nothing to say, important or otherwise. So instead I started playing around with the program’s rich melody creation features and if I’m not careful I could become seriously addicted to this shit.

As proof not of any musicality so much as my ability to compose simplistic inconsequential tunes, I offer up the following 40 seconds of earsugar in the form of my first GarageBand goof-around, which I appropriately call: Lil Ditty.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
