For example, you can use the "Hide Notes" feature, which will hide some notes for you so you can learn parts of the melody by ear. The "Memory train" tool will progressively hide notes each time you play through a section or the entirety of a song. Take your speed to the next level with the "Speed Up" feature. This tool will automatically increase playback speed each time you loop the song.

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz When an old friend I happened to see I introduced her to my loved one and while they were dancin' My friend stole my sweetheart from me I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz Now I know just how much I have lost Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing The beautiful Tennessee Waltz I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz When an old friend I happened to see I introduced her to my loved one and while they were dancin' My friend stole my sweetheart from me I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz Now I know just how much I have lost Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
