EZ Navigation

No Experience Required
While a song is playing back, you can have fun by adding your own contribution to the music using a single finger. Use the recommended Tone button to change the instrument sound to one that suits the music. If you want to learn a song, the Tempo Adjustment and Melody Mute functions will make the process easier for you. For example, you can practice songs as they play back at slower tempo.
