No need at all to re-do the tracks.  What you'll want to do is save a
snapshot of the full project, then start cutting away, knowing you can 
always go back to the full snapshot if you want.

You'll want to become familiar with the grid mode of the Ardour editor, which
will let you do your cutting and pasting with the edit points snapped to
the beats of the measures.  Good luck!
