In the Slavic tradition the tones consist of 40 different melodies for various types of hymns. (This doesn’t include special melodies, or the fact that there are several different named styles of tones, or that each melody has up to 3 harmony parts.) The tones are sung unaccompanied, and learning them can be challenging, to say the least.
Here are some resources to help you along that path.
ToneTutor 101 is a comprehensive audio program (on 10 CDs or 10 sets of downloadable MP3s) that teaches all 40 melodies of the tones of Slavic-style (Obikhod, I think) chant.
