I'm wondering if there is a program similar to iLife's garage band but for windows? As far as it's lessons on guitar go, and it's recording program that allows you to easily gauge how well you're doing and what not? Not that I don't have ears lol. Just wondering if there's anything like this program, but for the pc.
I'm not sure if it is similar to Garage Band because I haven't used it, but for recording on a Windows machine, most people I know use either FL Studio, Reaper, or Studio One Pro.
I'm not looking for a program to record per-say. More for the advanced ability of that program to help you learn songs and pieces via it's lessons and the mechanics behind that part of the program.
Have you tried TuxGuitar? It's a Guitar Pro reader, but it's free. Not really like Garage Band but the closest thing to what you're describing since you don't want recording.
