Tim's Tunes and Tabs are a great way to learn to read music and play many different instruments. T3 shows not only the sheet music but also the finger positions for many woodwind instruments (including the saxophone, penny whistles, recorder), brass (trumpet, horn), string instruments (including the guitar and ukulele), piano, harmonica tabs and the ABC music notation. See also the T3max app in the Windows Store. As you learn to read sheet music, you can switch off the finger positions or tabs. This will open a huge world of music as almost any song is available as sheet music but not in tabs. T3 comes with several of Tims Tiny Tunes, Specials, other samples and backing tracks in various styles. Use those to explore the features of T3 and how quickly you can learn to play the Tunes. The Tiny Tunes and Specials are composed by Tim Welvaars. Tim Welvaars is a world renowned jazz musician, composer and teacher. Tim had the honor of receiving an invitation from Toots Thielemans for a masterclass at his home in Belgium. From that moment on, Toots became his musical guru and main source of inspiration. Tim played and recorded together with a.o. Toots Thielemans, Stevie Wonder, Ray Brown, Kenny Burrel, Lee Ritenauer, Ricky Lawson, Roy Hargrove, Earl Palmer, Naomi Adriaansz, The London Symphonic Orchestra, the Dutch Metropole Orchestra, Bert v.d.Brink, Hein v.d. Geijn, Jan Akkerman and many others.
