Change View Option on Guitar. It's Upside down
I have identified a hurdle that I struggle with while playing guitar via Yousician. The strings on the screen go from highE top to lowE bottom whereas on the guitar they are reversed with high e at bottom and low e at top. My suggestion would be to have the viewpoint put the player behind the guitar strings. This way low e is at the top! I believe the current perspective makes it difficult to assimilate the string placement in the players mind.
Yousician uses standard tablature view to show the notes and chords on the screen. This can be confusing at first but learning to read tablature is a valuable skill that will be important both when using the app and reading tabs outside Yousician.
Here’s more information about reading tablature:
Keep on rocking!
I was so excited when I notice that Yousician make announcement for the left handed option.
But when I try it, I was little bit disappointed. There was only chords that has been flipped for left hand players. In my mind I thought that there will be changes for fretboard position also.
I agree that there should be an extra option into settings, where you can flip the fretboard upside down.

Agreed! So counter-intuitive for myself and my husband. It's the one reason that we aren't buying the premium edition. Love the app otherwise, but it causes me to not be able to keep up.
It's actually better because when your looking down at the guitar you see low e first and high e last. Like if you put your guitar next to the screen flat on the ground you can see it's the same pattern. That's why it's like that I think because when your looking down at the strings that's kind of the way you see it

It's the same way as tab is written, on guitar tab Low E is bottom, high e is top.
