Tunefox is a web and app based learning tool designed to help people learn bluegrass songs and licks for guitar, mandolin, bass and banjo. Each song in Tunefox has 3 versions - Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced (or Backup, Scruggs, and Melodic for banjo) - and each of those arrangements has switchable licks.
For example, let’s say you get a basic arrangement of a tune under your fingers. With Tunefox you can shuffle the measures of a song to create a new solo based on the original you just learned. It’s a fantastic way to approach improvisation. Included are all of the normal practice tools - tempo slider, backing tracks, chords, and looping/measure selection as well as special tools like speed up, hide notes, and memory-train.
The goal is to help students become real, creative musicians. We don’t want you to just learn an arrangement of a tune and then only be able to play that arrangement. There’s so much more to a solo and a lot of it has to do with hearing the bluegrass vocabulary and then learning how it fits into a song that you know.
