Indeed. Which is why after 20 years, much of that has already been done so we don't need to do it all again.

There is also youtube, the Live Help menu, the Ableton website which has a lot of useful videos and tutorials for a beginner. Also, just spending a few years playing around and experimenting is a good way to learn.

Tom Cosm

Used to be the man, and he’s still very much giving out those tips in YouTube format, to be honest YouTube is still the best place to ‘See Do’ learn which is my personal preference.

This oldie vid is still relevant, and it’s quick, but there are loads.

Ask google for ‘Quick Tips in For Ableton Live’ and you will see what I mean.

+100 This is an essential one imho.
It teaches you the Live's concepts in a didactic way, and gives you just enough to excite your imagination and find out the freedom around those concepts.
And the f*cking manual of course.
