Great course, but want to use these principles to jamming with hardware, not arranging in A. Live. Not quite there yet.

If you think about going on stage with a laptop and ableton, than this is the tutorial you need. Great and inspirational. Got some good idea's after watching this tutorial. It's really a different approach than the other ableton live tutorials.
