    It might sound weird but my browser does not seem to be able to display your article in a right manner… It looks like a whole chunk of if is not correctly displayed, and the layout of the page doesn’t appear to be right. Can you confirm that this post has been set up for Firefox?

    IS THERE A GARAGEBAND FOR IPAD 2 MANUAL FOR DUMMIES? I downloaded the app great. Except there are nagging things I can’t figure out that I can NOT find answers for. How do I import a song from I tunes? How do I cut a bit of a song on a track and paste it somewhere else? I keep thinking I can figure this out and can’t.
