Let's start by opening the tutorial project Cakewalk Audio Demo.cwb that we used in earlier tutorials.
One of the most important things to understand in order to edit your music successfully is selection. Once you become familiar with selecting, the rest is easy. There are two aspects of selection:
Let's say you'd like to delete the second measure of a certain track. The time range specifies that the edit will need to occur between measures 2 and 3. The track selection specifies what track's clips will be deleted, while leaving its surrounding tracks unchanged.
Let's explore some different ways to do this in a sample project. All of the tools described are available in the Tools module in the Control Bar. For a complete description of each tool in the Tools module, see Tools.

Note: If you would like to try both of the following methods, select Edit > Undo after completing the first method. Doing so will revert the project to its previous state.

Select the track that you want to delete measure 1 through measure 6 from. For this tutorial, let’s use the track named GTR_Lead 1.

You might have noticed that you're only able to select full measures. What if you need to edit a smaller amount of time? You'll need to turn off Snap To Grid. To do so, click the Snap to Grid button  in the Control Bar’s Snap module. With this button disabled, you will be able to make finer selections. You can also choose different Snap To Grid options in the Snap module.
