Make the most out of Tunefox's innovative platform to facilitate your learning process. The 'Lick Switcher' feature is an essential tool to get familiar with. As you play around with the feature, you will add new licks to your vocabulary and gain a unique perspective on the song. The ability to alter the licks for individual measures gives you the freedom to experiment with various song variations, consequently adding a personal touch to your arrangement.
