Apple has added 3 new songs to the Artists section of the GarageBand Lesson Store, Sting’s Message in a Bottle and Fragile and Sarah McLachlan’s Angel, bringing the total number of artist lessons available to 13.
13 songs that they pick?
If this isn’t an underwhelming feature, what is?
Apple should open this up, like the iTunes App store, so that anyone can make content for the platform. People are already making video podcasts by the zillions – turn Garageband into a video podcast store that lets you watch free and commercial educational music podcasts.
Add the ability to download content, too, and artists could show you how to play their music, and then give you a link to download a loops for their song, or a Garageband file with the backing tracks.
If they opened this up, it would blow up like every other open platform is doing these days, don’t you think?
Who would you pay money to have teach you a song, instead of Sting?
