Watch Below to see how you can really quickly make your own free music that can legally be used in your video projects using GarageBand and Midi files gotten from the web (make sure the maker of the midi file stipulates they are free to be used). To save you some time, I've collected a bunch that you can download here. Here is the site where these were gotten; there are many more than what I've provided. There are many more places on the internet to find midi files; let Google be your friend. The video is 7 or 8 minutes long, but once you know the procedure, you could have a new, high quality piece of music to use (legally) in under 5 minutes. Give it a try.

Here is a Google search I did with places to go for more free midi files.
