For GB1 For GB2 For GB3

A. Yes, on a "Software" track, but you have to use the Cycle Region function, and you can't stop and restart the recording process. You can record as many passes as you like, but once you stop recording, starting again will overwrite what was there from previous recording. If you miss your cue during a pass, just let it go and begin playing on the next pass.

For iLife '08 GB09 iLife '11
GarageBand 4 ('08) (And Later) offers an option in this regard,
you can either use the above method of "Cycle Recording", or you can use the Multi Take functionality. To have GarageBand behave the same way as the older versions, make sure that "Cycle Recording" is selected in GarageBand's prefs.

NOTE: Multi Take recording is available to BOTH "Real" as well as "Software" tracks (The old method is still restricted to "Software" Tracks only).
