There seems to be a diminishing interest in publishing books about how to use GB.
You might want to check out the how to video for GB '09 at MacProVideo: http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/garageband09101 . If you know how to use that, it's just a matter of brushing up on new features.

I should add, if you go to the GarageBand help menu and select GarageBand Help, you're presented with a series of lessons and tutorials that serves as a kind of how-to book in and of itself.

Friends in GarageBand land: I'm still looking for that perfect book to help beginners to GarageBand learn GarageBand 11. The suggestion for the book, "GarageBand '11 Power!" -- well, this is not the book. The author is passionate but spends the first 58 pages telling you what he is going to tell you later in the book, so a reader must keep slogging along, not really being told anything, not learning any real how-to tips or new-you-can-use until ... who knows when?
Sadly, this book does not fill the niche for the beginner.
Wish there was a MIssing Manual edition for a later GarageBand issue. I'm picking up how-to tips from various places. The Missing Manual for GarageBand 1.1 was terrific.

Have you had a look at Edgar Rothermich's pdf-downloads? I find the diagrams and explanations in the book "GarageBand '11, How it Works" very useful and suitable for beginners, see: http://dingdingmusic.com/DingDing/GB11.html
