Ukulele : Very horrible Amazing Grace

This is my assignment of :

Why did u try

The assignment missing the Melody;

I was not that dumb to let u hear me sing


Discuss your playing in regards to; timing, note accuracy, and rhythm accuracy. You MUST use music terminology:

I think my final piece was pretty good as far as timing. Both my Melody and my Strumming where pretty consistently in time. I could add a drummer in the background which would play to my melody and strumming and sound natural. While the recording was completely out of time, I was able to make it in time after some editing. However, my singing piece was not really in time since there were notes where I either did not sing in time, or I sung a note too long and had to switch through notes very quickly. I also could have improved on using the metronome as a guide while recording. I could have used it to give a general idea on when to sing, play, or strum each note. That way I would not have notes that are upwards of about 1-2 full beats away from their actual beat.

Overall, I am pretty happy with how my final piece sounded considering I have never played Amazing Grace or used GarageBand before.


Discuss your overall understanding of GarageBand and it’s processes. Note down what you learned about Garageband’s capabilities and how it impacted your song

After this project, I have grown a good understanding of GarageBand. I learnt how I could use this app to record music. Then add rummers and effects to make your piece personalised. I also learnt what you should and should not do to make your piece sound best. For example: I learnt that you should record while wearing headphones. You also must make sure your piece is in time or it will sound weird. GarageBand was really truly helpful for my song. It gave me a good platform to record and edit my song. I could easily start recording and easily adjust to meet my song. I could also easily put my piece in time and fix any mistakes I had. I also very easily added drummers and effects to make my piece my exciting. With this many features that someone like me who has never recorded a song ever could get the hang of quickly. I could say GarageBand is truly a good app for recording, and will provide a good foundation for music pieces I need to record in the future
