About this app

Tunefox is a web and app based learning tool designed to help people learn bluegrass songs and licks for guitar, mandolin, banjo and bass. Tunefox has revolutionary tools such as the skill slider. It allows one song to go from simple to complex with the swipe of a finger. We have a variety of styles to learn in each instrument. For mandolin and guitar there are stylized arrangements for Bluegrass, Crosspicking, Jazz, Classical and more. For banjo, we cover the three big styles of 3-finger picking(Scruggs, melodic and single-string). We also have tunes that range from classical to rock and roll. There’s a lot of variety to keep you interested and inspired. Every song has switchable licks that allow you to learn authentic bluegrass vocabulary, and get a new perspective on how to use them in a tune. Learning a wide variety of licks tremendously with building your vocabulary to use in improvisation.

Customization of a song is practically limitless. Once you get a basic arrangement of a tune under your fingers you can use the skill slider to add in a few of the notes to a basic arrangement. Like building a house, you slowly add a few bricks at a time after you’ve laid the foundation. With the vary slider, you can customize which fill-in notes are used around the basic arrangement you’ve learned. Then, to top all of that off, you can shuffle in a variety of licks, to incorporate different styles and techniques into your playing. It’s personalized to the max! Included within Tunefox 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 (these special tools are available on the web version).

Our goal is to help students become real 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.


"Tunefox is a superior way to learn songs and licks in the privacy of your own home. A clear method of teaching all styles of bluegrass banjo; enough to keep you busy for years."
- Steve Martin (Actor/Comedian/Musician)

"It's a great jumping off point for making up my own licks."
- Graham Sharp (Steep Canyon Rangers)

"Tunefox is the best digital learning tool for banjo I've ever encountered. The interface is intuitive, and the content is musical and well thought out. Everyone learning bluegrass banjo should get this app."
- Wes Corbett (Molly Tuttle Band)

Wow, I saw someone mention this on Reddit. So I decided to give it a go, currently, I'm floored. This is by far one of the most intuitive apps for learning guitar that I've found. Aside from the other supported instruments. The depth is quite impressive in comparison to many other guitar tablature apps. So far, this easily gets 5 stars. I'm downright baffled. I really hope they continue to support this app, because I could see this growing into something more amazing than it already is!

I'm pretty excited to have this app. All I need in one place for banjo pickin. I can't wait to see the future of it. Thanks for making this I'm definitely a learn by ear but I could never find anything to help me. Also lessons in person finding the right person let alone has been difficult. Plus the tabbed to follow along a so nice! Thank you I'm learning so much more fast and it's sticking in my brain lol!

Free to sample $300 to buy. They have subscriptions but I would give them more money is I could purchase the songs and lessons I want and not subscribe to everything. If there are those purchase options, I couldn't find them.
