Just getting started with Ableton Live? Then you’re living in pretty good times, friend, because the wealth of information out there to get you up to speed is as lush as ever. Now, Point Blank Music School is about to make it even more fruitful with the introduction of their 9 Lives of Ableton series of tutorials for those new to the production game.

When you dig in to Ableton Live, you’ll soon discover that there’s a whole lot to cover. In this first tutorial, instructor Anthony Chapman walks us through Live’s Session View, explaining the ins and outs of this vertically oriented track layout and why it’s so unique. Peep it below, and stay tuned for, well, eight more of these, presumably.
