New path "ear training"
Ear training is important too and this would be a nice complement.
While they’re not in a path of their own, we now have ear training exercises under the Knowledge Path. Go check them out and give your ears a good training!

This was a horrible idea.

Ear trainer for piano Is the worst stupid idea ever, i am so frustated, AND this mini games área not fun
What is "Knowledge 2 Ear Training Smaller Steps - Note Finder: Major Arpeggio" asking us to do? Cannot get past this piuzzle.
This is the most impossible thing ever. I've been sitting here for 7 hours straight trying to figure out the guitar puzzles. Maybe having some sort of explanation (video, etc...) before throwing us into the hell of dings and bings via annoying buttons would help.
Ear puzzles is probably the most frustrating thing ever. Spent hours on the stupid thing and all I want to do is practice so annoying!

The "Knowledge and Creativity" track for Piano has some great ear training for major / minor / "other" chords, where the player listens to a chord and has to quickly respond what type of chord it is. I would love more ear training content for: jazz chords and other fancier chords, intervals, and inversions. Maybe even an absolute pitch game to try to train for perfect pitch.
Did you get this idea from piano marvel, because it has the same exact thing!
I think it would be great to have an ear training for piano and guitar. I'm currently learning both and being able to play songs I hear that I like is my ultimate goal. Ear training would also help make us musicians more well-rounded
This would be epic, and offer a huge boost to musicianship.
For guitar, initially, it would be just the open strings as a warm-up. The app plays a note in the first beat of a bar, then you have to play the same note in the first beat of the next bar, and it lights up green or read according to whether right or wrong.
Then, have it cover all the notes in (say) the blues pentatonic scale. Then, major, aeolian minor and dorian minor. Then, chromatic.
Once user is getting good at single note, then test them on 2 notes. Then 3, then build up to increasingly complex melody lines.
Parallel to this would be chords. initially 2-note chords formed by adjacent strings, eg open B and open top E, or A on the G string and C on the B string. Then building up a little bit at a time to some wickedly complex jazz chord voicings.
A well-developed ear-training feature, with the excellent listening, checking, feedback, scoring features already present, would take Yousician to the next level as a music training tool.
