Apple is offering a series of free UK seminars to show how Macs are an ideal computer platform for guitarists.

The company will show how applications such as GarageBand or Logic can be used with guitars, highlighting the huge number of guitar and amplification effects available to users of such applications.

They will also illustrate how some available MIDI guitars can let users employ hundreds of synthesiser sounds.

Seminars take place at three venues: MacExpo 2005, Olympia, London, October 29, 13.30-18.00; Music Live, NEC, Birmingham, November 5, 18.30-21.30; The Hub, Castlehill, Edinburgh, November 28, 18.30-21.30.

The Olympia event features special guests, guitarists Dominic Miller, Ben Lacy and Jay Roberts.

Places are limited so pre-registration is required.
