  1. Random note generator for sight reading practice

    Not really a game, but I would like to see a two-staff random note generator that can keep track of how many and % right or wrong. Listens to your keyboard for answer. In upgrades, it can expand to add sharps and flats, change key signatures, or generated random chords. Some beginners would prefer to practice this way rather than canned songs.

  2. tempo 100% with one click or tap

    I would like to easy set tempo to 100% - but it is tricky when you had it on auto or 30% etc... It would be great to have opportunity to set 100% with one tap or click. Many thanks

  3. Ear Training "repeat after me" With The instrument rather than clicking

    Ear Training exercise "repeat after me"

    I hear a short phrase within a scale then I repeat what I hear on my instrument on tempo if I get it right I will get similar phrase but a bit longer or more complex

    the tempo should be continuous never stop until exit but the tempo can be set (feel like Duolingo that keep you repeat what you know but add bit new thing in the mix from time to time)

  4. Ghost notes (dead notes) lessons for Bass

    It would be awesome to have lessons on muted/ghost notes. Muting is talked about briefly, but really we need lesson videos, and SONGS to play with these muted notes. Almost every genre has bass playing with "ghost" notes which are muted notes played for bass and there are a few songs in Yousician with them, but there is no lesson. It seems a huge omission. Lesson and lots of practice songs with muted notes. Once these lessons and songs (at various levels) are there, then any song with muted notes can be played (Premium Plus songs have muted notes [e.g.…

  5. appletv

    Can you please make an AppleTV app? It doesn't work very well slinging from the iPhone.

  6. Notification of key changes

    I play on the piano setting. It's hard when I'm playing a song and the key signature changes and I don't see it. It would be nice if, at least for beginners, it made it more obvious when the key changes.

  7. Hide notes to improve memory

    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.

  8. Play chord with ear training

    In guitar Tuna, I would like you to add a game that gets you to listen to a chord and then play it on the guitar to match the chord. I think this would be a powerful reinforcement for ear training excercises.

  12. Timing accuracy stats

    I loved the timing accuracy stats that showed up after playing a song. That way I could see my timing improving! This feature seems to be removed in the last update. Please bring it back somehow!

  13. Song keys in guitar please

    I would love to know what key the songs are in- especially for lead playing, so I can take the knowledge I'm learning in the lessons and bring them to the stage. Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. List the song tempo / rhythm and key

    Just showing the tempo (number), rhythm and key for a song. When I'm trying to play a song in Yousician from memory, it would be nice to have this basic info.

  16. allow user to choose background color in practice mode

    So, When I am trying to practice piano, I either used the enhanced notes or the standard notes. But either way, If you're playing a higher or lower note that goes off the staff, it's impossible to see against such a dark background, especially if you're playing on a small screen like your phone. Also against that dark blue background lines through the notes (like C, for example) are virtually invisible. I don't have this issue in perform mode, because that light blue color is fine. In practice mode, can the color be a lighter color, or allow us to…

  17. Change output device

    I find myself changing my computer's default audio when I play so I can hear Yousician through my preferred speakers. I think it would be great if I could choose an output audio device for Yousician.

  18. 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:

    https://yousician.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201576782-Guitar-problems

    https://yousician.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202251492-Setting-up-microphone

    Cheers,

  19. Set up a weekly training session

    In addition to weekly challenges. A session of chosen length (15, 30, 45 min) where we practice all the skills learnt so far. The player would lose points when skipping the weekly session.

    "What do you want to practice for today's session?
    - chord shapes
    - scales
    - songs
    - strumming
    - ..."

  20. Preview music before playing

    I would love an option to see and listen to music BEFORE attempting to play it for the first time. This would be particularly helpful for selecting challenge and premium+ songs to try. thanks
