  1. GuitarTuna: Add tunings for 3-string instruments or 4-string instruments with 3 pitches

    A McNallly Strumstick or Seagull Merlin cannot be easily accommodated by any of the available tunings in Guitar Tuna. The strings are tuned G-D-G, D-A-D or D-A-D-D, or perhaps to alternate notes. The closest thing is creating a custom guitar tuning, which shows guitar artwork with 6 tuning pegs, 3 of which end up being superfluous and get in the way visually. Artwork with 3 tuning pegs would be appropriate, allowing customization of the associated notes. This could be a choice under the Custom Tuning menu option, or an entire new menu option at the same level as Ukulele or…

  2. the premium ad should not show so much during free usage

    The premium ad shows up way to much even when you are done with your free session and is very annoying

  4. Fretboard trainer

    It would be nice to have a fretboard training option.
    a little game that shows a certain fret on a certain string and that asks you what note it is. Or vice versa, the app asks to play a certain note on a certain string

  5. Reduce sensitivity for E, Em and Am

    I am clearly not the only one with recognition problems with these chords.

    It is incredibly frustrating, it makes you want to quit and hinders your progress in your missions!!!

    I've read all the treads, followed all the advice, paid for a teacher in person to tell me if I am playing them correctly... and nothing

    I talked to customer service and they basically told me to switch to electric to PERHAPS get rid of the problem.

    That is NOT a solution.

    I have no problems with any other, harder chords... so PLEASE DO SOMETHING.
    This is truly annoying.

    Thanks

    Hi Sonia,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    We are constantly working on improving chords recognition and it should be better in the next version of the application.

    Have you checked the chord trainers in the Cowboy Chords 1: E, Em, Am mission?

    Better recognition could be achieved if you play with a pick, not fingers.

    Also short strums over chords are recognized better.

    Meanwhile we would recommend to check the following articles:

  6. Standard tab

    I would like the option to display standard tab instead of the coloured animated bouncy ball graphics. I find it all a bit off putting, and you're unable to see far enough ahead to prepare your left hand position for what's coming up. I also find the colour coding difficult to remember so have to keep checking the picture then bugger up the playing

  10. Bouncing Ball On Starting String

    At the start of a song, could you have the ball bouncing on the string that you will first start playing with? I usually miss the first few notes because I had no idea where I would be.

  11. Options to change background graphics..

    Considering the hours and hours a person will spend reading the tab and practicing along... I've always thought the colorful and fun graphics of GuitarBots.. was a really good idea.. in Yousician aside from the tab, we only get to look at the transparent floating ribbons and bubbles... on an overwhelmingly green field... I don't think we necessarily need the bots playing in the background,. but there should be some options to change up the background to make it more fun or interesting... I think it would be cool.. if we could choose a folder of pics to run as…

  15. Ability to change the finger color coding

    In some cases the finger color coding is not optimal. It would be good to have the option to change the colors according to your playing style. This is especially useful for imported songs. It can be annoying to see the wrong colors and it takes away concentration.

    You can always include the option 'reset to default'.

  16. Just Play, Play Correct, Play Perfect option

    I would like to see an option added to the settings.

    Play Correct - when enabled it should restart the song or part of the song I am playing whenever I hit the wrong note, timing is not an issue.
    Play Perfect - when enabled it should restart the song or part of the song I am playing whenever I hit a note at the wrong moment or just the wrong note

    Something like

    Code: Select all

    Play Mode: - Just Play
    
    - Play Correct
    - Play Perfect

    This will be a great help when trying to get high score…

  17. When paused in practice mode, have the chord shape be displayed instead of going away

    Also, it would be helpful if when you are doing missions in play mode, a player could see the chord shape in preparation for that chord.

    A lot like in practice mode. Yousician should ask the user: Do you know this chord?

    (Yes) (No)

    The user selects yes, the app slows the song down, so you have time to prepare for the upcoming chord.

    The user selects no, the app continues the song at the regular level.

  18. add a timer before you resume

    add a timer (e.g 3 secs) before you resume so that you can get ready to continue and not miss a note. at the moment if you pause in the middle of the song and then resume, you always missed the next beat cos it starts intermediately.

  20. Include tuition on fingerstyle, hybrid picking, alternate chord fingering. Particularly fingerstyle would be great.

    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. An addition of hybrid picking, alternate chord fingerings, and other advanced techniques would also be welcome.
