Afternoon Delight: Shredding on Your iPad

by Jerome Weeks 27 May 2011 1:00 PM

New Advancements in Handy Musical-Digital Production:One iPad and the Garageband app leads to a multi-track session topped with a tasty guitar solo. Voila, solo laptop pop music.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back Monday at 1 p.m. for another one.

New Advancements in Handy Musical-Digital Production: Previously, we’ve shown you a live band making music (on a New York subway) with just four iPhones and a Mac laptop (their regular instruments had been stolen).

Now we’re getting even more DIY-ish on you. George Lambros did the whole, multi-track drums-guitar-keyboard deal with just one iPad and the Garageband app. Then, around the 1:40 mark, he starts jamming on the guitar. Pretty cool to watch.

The video starts in silence, so just because the visual quality isn’t the best, don’t think there’s something wrong with the audio.
