GarageBand '11: Unable to create electric guitar tracks

Symptoms

You may not be able to make an electric guitar track after updating to GarageBand '11. This can occur if you chose a custom install option when installing a previous version of GarageBand and then relocated the instruments and loops.

Resolution

To resolve this issue:

  1. Quit GarageBand.
  2. From the Finder, choose Home from the Go menu.
  3. Double-click the Library folder.
  4. Double-click the Preferences folder.
  5. Find the file "com.apple.garageband.plist" and drag it to the trash.

Note: Performing these steps will reset any customized preferences in GarageBand to their default settings (such as the selected audio input and output device).
