  1. More music theory and technique exercises

    Love the idea, but doesn't have much to offer an intermediate player looking to become more advanced (other than learning complex songs).

    Add more exercises covering

    *scales (modes)
    *arpeggios
    *sight reading exercises (read musical notation)
    *music theory lessons
    *lessons/workouts for improvisation
    *chord trainers
    *fingerpicking drills
    *right hand notation drills
    * bend drills
    *double stop drills
    *more strumming techniques

    etc etc

  2. Song length

    Please give an indication of the song duration in the 'progress panel'; also indicate the current time during progress or when you move the cursor (like a classic player).

  3. Metronome improvements

    Three suggestions:

    1) Show the BPM at which the metronome is running.
    2) Adjustable clicks per beat (1 to 16) would be great. It could be useful to avoid 'silence' between main clicks when practice in slow mode. Furthermore it helps in songs with 'fancy' rhythms.
    3) Add volume control to metronome.

  4. Guitar: Beginner optional indicator for when and where to move hand position

    For beginners, It would be great to have an optional visual cue for when and where to move hand position on the guitar.

  5. Option to Hide or Show always notes/chords

    I wish there was a way to help me improve memorizing song tabs.
    Perhaps one way to do this is to hide a fraction of the notes randomly at a rate that is configurable. Maybe easy version would only show you which string the note is at but not which fret.
    I think there is a great potential here for Yousician to help members improve not only playing skills but also memory skills.

  7. Fingerpicking lessons

    I think a new section within Yousician (in both rhythm and lead) for fingerstyle or integration of tuition on how to use fingerstyle for songs that already exist would be great

    Add chord overview for fingerpicking songs

  8. Cord Shapes on Strings

    When the ball is rolling to a initial Cords first three strums indicating frets shape for a C it would be helpful to show the notes on the strings as to assist in memorization of the shape. That is just include yousician shape guide that already exists at the top of the screen and lay it over the rolling fret string guides first three strums only.

  9. A feature where instrument and singing is combined for yousician to detect and give you feedback!

    For example: I like to play the guitar and sing @ the same time like many others do because playing the guitar and singing go hand in hand and everybody who do both like to combine them together so a feature where you can play the guitar and sing @ the same time but yousician can give you feedback on both @ the same time just like it does individually and separately! So that we can check if our singing is in sync with our guitar playing!
    (PS: ALSO; include the same feature as well for playing the ukulele and…

  11. Ability to mark songs as Dislike, Exclude, Hide, Permanently skip or set account to preferred type of music

    When scrolling through the "New Songs" list, I would like a way to mark songs that I have previously checked out but didn't like or was not interested in. If there was a way to tag these then they could be filtered out or at least marked so I would know not to open it again.

    Since the songs show up quite randomly, I find I'm always scrolling through looking for something new that I might be interested in. This will get more tedious than it already is as the collection grows.

    Also to add:

    -Permanently skip a song or…

  12. Different Instruments on Different Platforms

    I use Yousician on multiple platforms (Mac/PC/iOS). Each one is set up for a particular instrument. When I change instrument on one platform, the others change too. I'd like the instrument selection to be saved on each platform so that I don't have to keep switching when I change platforms.

  13. Notifications - instrument and app specific

    Allow us to view notifications as per the instrument we have selected in app, rather than all notifications across all instruments showing up in the same list.

    On mobile, only show ukulele notifications in the ukulele mobile app, piano notifications in the piano mobile app and guitar, bass and singing notifications in the Yousician app.

    When checking the notification, stop the app from switching your instrument, if the notification is about an instrument you are not playing in that session.

  14. Better stats & info about playing errors

    Better playing stats to make it easier to spot and correct playing errors i.e.:

    *Score per section
    *Replay of notes you missed and have the app show why that chord/note didn't register.
    *Stats on whether you tend to play notes early or late etc (timing accuracy).
    *Song map or errors list that shows errors
    *Missed strings when playing chords
    *How many total notes you played at the end of it instead of just stars

    Adding a per minute stat in the weekly email update and the stats page

  15. Piano Sustain Pedal Support

    Yousician Piano currently lacks any mention of the sustain pedal, which is important for making songs sound good. At some intermediate point in the piano learning tracks I'd like to see an instructional lesson on how to use the pedal, and at least for MIDI devices some feedback on whether it's being used correctly.

  18. Don't let Yousician kick me out of a song if I'm not doing very well

    Currently if I'm struggling to hit notes in song mode Yousician will tell me it can't hear my guitar, turn red and then kick me out of the song suggesting I practice.

    This is pretty annoying as I'm still trying to play the song and it disrupts my learning; its also a pretty negative approach for an educational app.

    Yes I can use practice mode, but that should be my choice. Let me finish the song and achieve whatever score I can and then try to beat it next time.

  19. Transpose notes feature

    Even in the beginning there are a lot of songs in different keys. This adds additional difficulty for a beginner, who hardly knows one or two scales. So the function that automatically transposes notes to any key will help beginners to play songs they like and have more practice. A lot of electronic pianos and synths have transpose function, so using this feature should be easy.

  20. Add a ‘more from this artist’ button so we can easily play other songs from the same artist

    Make it more easy to find songs we enjoy by being able to link to other songs from a band we are currently working on/ looking at in search results or song page.
