Doing this enabled me to use the Learn to play lessons on a Core Solo Mac mini.

You don't need this hint. You have an Intel Mac.

Wrong. From Apple's "iLife '09 System Requirements":

GarageBand Learn to Play requires an Intel-based Mac with a dual-core processor or better.

Hence, this hint will be necessary for anyone with a Core Solo Intel-based Mac wanting to use the "Learn to Play" feature on GarageBand '09 -- as well as anyone with a PowerPC-based Mac.

Perhaps Rob G. could clarify in his parenthetical remarks on the main page that "Learn to Play" requires a dual core Intel-based Mac.

Go to that folder... And then what? All you have to do is go to the folder? This sounds like an incomplete hint/process to me.

There's two ".mwand" files in there. Double-click on them and they'll open in GarageBand and play fine. Works fine on my Power Mac G5.
