This is a short excerpt from my Ableton Live tutorial video that’s 4.5 hours long.

This video covers a 4.5-hours long session that first covers the main tools and techniques and then records the song from Session to Arrangement.

(NB: This is NOT a video about songwriting; this is a video that helps you use a very popular music-making software).
Video is suitable for both beginners as well as more experienced users who want to learn how to use Ableton Live.
