"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)

Tunefox is a web and app based learning tool designed to help people learn bluegrass songs and licks for guitar, mandolin, 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. We think 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 (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.

"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)

It’s Key To How I Learn


I’ve been an early user of TuneFox and love the new app and the ease with which I can learn new songs, either solely by ear or with some of the tools (ease of isolating measures, hidden notes, ability to switch in different licks, Scruggs/melodic and backup playing styles). With TuneFox, I’ve stretched myself like never before, and it’s all self-paced. When i’ve got a tune I want to master, as happened this week at a jam session, TuneFox was my first stop. I love being able to isolate one, two three measures until I have them nailed and then move on. In the past, I’ve always started at the beginning of a song and as a result, i don’t get to the back of the song as much. That’s all changed and I am seeing progress I’ve never seen before! I’m now using it for mandolin and plan on using it to learn guitar.

Time to pick up the banjo again.


Was learning banjo many years, and life happened. Started again and looked for a teaching app. Wow, there are many out there, some very good, a lot, not so much. Tunefox is one of the more expensive, but well worth the money. Many options in learning how to play and improve your skills.

Great for musicians and beginners alike


Finally an app that has so many cool features it’s hard to mention all. This app was created by professional musicians and teachers so it addresses all aspect of music learning. I am a professional musician and teacher and now use this app with many of my students. Good job guys!
