  1. Learn to play independently

    The biggest complaint you hear about Yousician is that it only teaches you to play along with the bouncing ball and not really play on your own.

    It would good to have one or two songs in each mission where sections are repeated note for note but where the tab and bouncing ball disappear for while you play the repeated part. That would force us to get comfortable committing songs to memory and getting our time nailed with the tab/ball assisting us. The repeated sections could get longer as skills develop.

    I try to do this now by forcing myself…

  2. mini games for all instrument and ideas for knowledge path.

    mini games such as ear trainer, combos with various chords, Simon Says , one method to learn notes on the fretboard and many games . These games will help us to improve our ear , memory , speed et cetera. Additionally, I would like to there are many exercises about with videos in the knowledge path. e.g. names of the strings . Nice video but I want to be added many exercises about this and every video in the knowledge path which we are eagerly awaiting it.

  3. Sing along while playing instrument

    I would like to be able to practice singing while playing an instrument. I think a karaoke-like interface combined with the instrument tablature would be useful. I don’t need the singing to be graded, but I think being able to compare the instrument playing scores with and without singing would be useful.

  4. Add Android support for Real Tone guitar cable

    Using an OTG Micro USB adapter, I'm able to connect my Real Tone cable to my Android phone. It's detected by the kernel and Linux subsystem, but it appears the Unity Android app only supports the "Device microphone"

    Relevant logcat output:

  5. Please Enable Tempo Filter For Songs

    When I get tired of practicing harder songs on a slower tempo, I can continue practicing by switching to an easier faster song to break things up and liven up the session.

    However I cant currently search for fast songs, so I have to go through the easy songs one by one and this kills my momentum and motivation to continue.

    Please add some sort of filter by speed or bpm to make it easier to switch up the pace. It will increase my learning capability dramatically.

    Thank you

  7. Voice control

    I'd like to be able to navigate the gui with voice commands. Would free up myhands from awkwardly reaching for the controls while holding an instrument.

  8. Option to toggle the bouncing ball

    The bouncing ball is great, but it is too much of a visual aid for keeping the beat.

    I would like to have an option to turn it off, and listen to the metronome instead.

  9. Technical path with different technical exercises

    I think, that Yousician needs to have the separate technical path with some exersises (not melodys). For example, playing different scales, sequences, arpeggios or educational musical passages. Exercise for the development of motor skills of fingers, rhythm, dynamics and other. By performing these exercises, users will be able to raise their technical level of the guitar.
    Technical path will not be mandatory. Who do not want to do these exercises - may continue to play in other paths (lead and rhythm), that will not be blocked.
    Now Yousician have some exercises (they are in Trainers inside all sections), but these…

  10. Ability to mark songs as Dislike, Exclude or Hide

    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.

  11. instrument control of app

    instead of having to tap on stuff in the app, you should be able to play a note to navigate

    note for up

    note for down

    note for select

    note for back

  12. Numbers instead of colours is a must for piano.

    People learning piano are used to numbers instead of colours for finger selection. Using colours when you are used to numbers is quite confusing.

  13. Possibility to control guitar/bass/piano/uke volumes on backing tracks

    Let's say I play a guitar song for the first time, having a guitar perfectly recorded playing that part in the mix is nice to have an idea of how I'm supposed to sound. but once I learned it, it would be great if I could control that guitar track volume with a slider, even mute it, so I can hear all the details of my playing in the mix.

    These backing tracks with the guitar playing the same notes tend to mask mistakes that would be heard otherwise.

    this feature could be implemented automatically to the instrument one is…

  14. Adding more plans to yousician

    Idea is to have more options on available plans. Add more plans, like daily, weekly, weekend, etc. Not everyone can afford price for monthly plan, and nor everyone have enough of time to play for whole paid month. It is better to pay and activate plan with more precise timings, when you now that you will use that paid time efectively for sure.

  15. Instead of having to keep up with the tempo, give the option to practice accuracy

    So the song only moves forward if I get the notes correct

  16. In song practice mode, widen the speed adjustment bar

    There's no GUI reason why the speed adjustment bar is so tiny. It typically takes about 10 tries to get close to a speed you want. Triple its width to make it more user friendly.

  17. More advanced music theory

    Love the idea, but doesn't have much to offer an intermediate player looking to become more advanced (other than learning complex songs). Adding more scales (modes), arpeggios, and sight reading exercises.

  18. Acoustic

    Could you create a path for acoustic guitar or create more exercises relevant to acoustic guitars on the lead path? Some of the current levels require hammers, picks, and legato slides that cannot be performed as well on acoustic guitars. Thanks!

  19. TABS for the songs in the missions.

    Why aren't there any tabs for each song to look at? for example in the "details"-menu. It would make practicing and remembering them alot easier i think, if one could look at the song as a whole, not just as it flies across the screen. I'm on level 7 now and i don't think i remember 1 complete song from the missions..:/ - jaxxxn

  20. 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
