I don't need the help nearly as much these days but every now and again something will come up. After all these years, I have no interest in learning a new program.
Pro Tools is still the professional standard by which all other DAWs are ultimately judged, despite it's naysayers. I also concur that once we get comfortable with a comprehensive DAW there's no need to keep reinventing the wheel. I would however suggest that GarageBand does not rise to the standard of a comprehensive DAW and if the OP embraces the home recording deal he'll soon want to upgrade.

here’s a web site that could educate you. You don’t have to spend loads of money on the room but you should put aside some for the basics
Couldn't agree more!!!
