If you're an intermediate player looking to explore flatpicking guitar tablatures, 'My Home's Across the Blue Ridge Mountains' in simple, Bluegrass styles offers the perfect learning tool. Keywords to keep in mind include vocal song, medium-tempo, and old time.
One of the best ways to get the most out of this learning resource is by using the various features of the Tunefox platform. The Lick Switcher is crucial in seeing familiar songs in a different light. It lets you add new lick vocabulary and change the licks in individual measures, offering a multitude of variations for the song. To uncover hidden licks for each measure, simply tap it.
The Arrange Slider is another great tool that lets you customize the difficulty level with ease. Sliding it to the left, you'll get a simple, core arrangement, with many of the “fill-in” notes removed. If you slide it to the right, these extra notes appear to reveal the full song.
Don't forget to use the tempo slider too. Changing the tempo can make practicing and learning this song more exciting. This feature is even more fun when paired with backing tracks. You can repeat selected measures until you master them.
Last but not least, get to know and love the 'Speed Up' function. This will gradually increase the playback tempo, ideal for slowly acclimatizing to higher speeds. Start at a speed you're comfortable with, and let 'Speed Up' incrementally raise the tempo each time you play through the song. The best tips for learning any new song include repetition, patience, and enjoyment in exploring variances in your playing.
