I can no longer find the option of creating a New Basic Track.
Just use "Track > newTrack" to create a new Audio Track.
When you do not select any patch at all from the library, it will be a basic audio track.
Alternately, if you still have GarageBand '11 installed in addition to your GarageBand 10.0, you will find the old patches in the "Legacy" section of the Library Inspector. Type "Basic" into the search field, and you will find the Basic track from the old GarageBand.

I had noticed, as per your example, that if I selected a vocal track, then I could find my way around to the Basic Track option. With instruments I had no such luck. However, your suggestion put me on the right track and helped me come up with a workaround. Thanks for the response!
