Connect your iPad to your iMac > open iTunes > select your iPad in the left panel > click the Music tab at the top of iTunes > check mark Sync Music > check mark: Seleted Playlist, Artist, Albums.
If you already have it set up like this, uncheck the playlist or Albums you do not want on the iPad, or if you do not have it set up this way, do it. Then hit the Sync button on the bottom of iTunes, it will delete all the music you do not want off of your iPad.

The audio (Blue) that you do see on there now is music I downloaded from iCloud from the device. I want to be able to select playlist and albums, etc. and synch direclty from the itunes tab like I used to be able to do.

You have to turn off iTunes Match. Since you are using Match you can just download the music that you want on your device as needed. If you turn iTunes Match off you can then sync it to your device the old way!

Thanks....it was pretty much as you said but it was a bit trickier than that to get it to work correctly. I finally got ahold of a senior Apple support person and she was able to help me sort it out....but only after about an hour. I had to turn off music match on the iPad ....as it was hooked up to the white chord to my iMac ......but it still would not show that I could manipulate my music through the iTunes tab....the old fashioned way. I had to power down my iPad ....hold sleep wake to get the slider to turn it off. Then I turned it back on and it "cleared" and showed the music tab as it should be so I could get a large amount of music off my over capacity iPad. Seems pretty puttzy and don't recall having this problem before even after I signed up for music match. sounds a bit buggy and hope Apple Engineers are able to sort this out so that it is less confusing.
I was surprised to find that the first level Apple support guy new nothing about iCloud or music match....at one point he asked..." can't you just stream the music in iCloud to your iPad without downloading it to the device!" I said "I wish!" LOL! He was clueless. the Senior support seemed a bit unsure about it as well....but she was able to use good common sense analytical steps to help me solve the problem.
All is good now!
