"Under the Double Eagle" is an instrumental, medium-tempo bluegrass classic, covered here in an accessible tab format for advanced flatpicking guitarists. Our learning tools on Tunefox will help guide your learning experience, giving you the flexibility to play around with different variations and develop your own interpretation of the song. This process will not only enhance your ability to play this piece but will also improve your overall musicianship.
One of the most important features that Tunefox offers is the Lick Switcher. This tool enables you to effortlessly alternate between different licks for individual measures, thereby adding a new flavor to how you interpret the song. Tap any measure to uncover licks that you can switch around, modify the arrangement to your preference, and learn new ways to interpret the tune.
The Arrange slider is a valuable tool as it allows you to customize the difficulty level with precision. Sliding to the left eliminates many of the fill-in notes, leaving a simpler, core arrangement in the tablature. Conversely, if you slide to the right, all fill-in notes are added to reflect the full arrangement of the song.
Another great tool to utilize while learning this song is the tempo slider. Adjusting the tempo not only aids in mastering the rhythm but also helps in preparing you to play along with a band. You can start at a slower speed and then transition to the original tempo, or experiment playing the piece at faster tempos for added challenge.
Playing along with backing tracks is another essential part of learning bluegrass. It immerses you in a band-like atmosphere, helping to improve your timing and rhythm as well as adding to the enjoyment of practicing. Use the 'Speed Up' function, which incrementally increases the playback tempo, to gradually build up to jam speed. Start at a comfortable pace and let the 'Speed Up' feature guide you to higher speeds.
Focus on selected measures and repeat them. In addition, don't forget to experiment! Bluegrass is about expressing yourself within the structure of a song. Utilize the provided tools, get creative, and make this version of "Under The Double Eagle" uniquely yours.
