New GarageBand Lessons from Rush and John Legend Now Available

The Loop notes that Apple has expanded its GarageBand lesson offerings to add two Rush songs ("Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight") on guitar and one John Legend song ("Ordinary People") on piano.

Rush's guitarist Alex Lifeson takes you through a simple way to play the intro riff to one of the band's most popular songs, "Tom Sawyer." After learning the opening riff, Lifeson then breaks down the rest of the song, showing you the chords and solo techniques.

Apple introduced its professional music lessons with GarageBand '09 earlier this year and now includes lessons from Sting, Sarah McLachlan, Fall Out Boy, OneRepublic, Colbie Caillat, John Fogerty, Ben Folds, Sarah Bareilles, and Norah Jones in addition to the new offerings. Lessons are priced at $4.99 and can be purchased directly through the Lesson Store within GarageBand '09.
