or "How to use your iPhone to create killer backing tracks to jam along to when you don’t have any musician friends." 

In this GarageBand tutorial we fully recreate the Ed Sheeran song Shape Of You using just an iPhone - to record Drums, synths, guitars, bass… all you need is your ukulele and your kazoo! Then using your newfound GarageBand skills, you can create your own backing tracks to jam over.
