I just recently switched from PC to Mac (and I'll never go back) but I'm having a bit of a learning curve with garage band (though it is tons of fun),


Here's my issue (and maybe I'm just trying to do something it's not made to do):


1) I recorded a 12 bar bass track for a 36 bar song using my midi controller and a software bass instrument

2) I dragged the loop once to make a 24 bar song (1 original and 1 repeat loop)

3) when I tried to drag it to make a third repeat, it just stops and won't let me do it...I can advance like 1 second at a time but this will take forever.


am I just trying to do something dumb?  Is there a better way to do this?
