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!
I'd be happy to pay for premium content if I felt that I'd be able to access it. I'm playing on an acoustic and just can't get past the power chords section. D5, C5 and G5 are all fine but the app seems only to recognise A5 when it feels like it. Agree that acoustic learners probably want something different from those on electric so that an acoustic path would be great. I'd be thrilled and would jump at subscribing because the app otherwise fits in so well with my lifestyle.
Level 8 String Bender is very hard for acustic guitars. It doesn't work very well. I would sugest another area for acustic guitars, maybe with some classic, spanish and brazilian acustic guitar content. That would realy make me buy the premium content.

I agree. I learning acoustic and classical, looking to develop a pseudo classical finger picking folksy sort of playing.
I really enjoying yousician because it pushes me to learn things accurately, but I'm sitting here playing metatonic over and over trying to get those hammer on - pull off things going and on accoustic it is so quiet for this that I keep getting red notes even played at 30% speed. Its driving me nuts, fourth week of this now......
I would really love a learning path more specifically aimed at developing accoustic and classical nylon string skills.

I think it would be awesome to have an acoustic path. If not a path, at least I think it would be great to have a filter to filter songs "most" relevant to nylon or steel string or electric guitars.
p.s. Dave was a bit harsh, and undiplomatic, but it is a good idea to get an acoustic set up to make it easy to play, especially if you'll play fast leads on it.
p.p.s. However, Mr Dave, you might miss the point that acoustic playing often isn't about fast leads, or riffing or simple cowboy chords (though they are a big part of my playing! :P). There is a lot more too it and sometimes it the Yousician material is just better on an electric guitar (which is why I bought an electric recently). Therefore if you intend to play acoustic (which I do 99% of the time when I'm performing), an acoustic path focusing on that instrument is a good idea. The opposite would certainly be true and has been true. Decades ago everyone started on acoustic guitar, and the guitar method books were based on acoustic guitars, and sometimes people started classical on a nylon string. Nowadays, if you want to learn rock music or other electric music, there are plenty of people who start straightaway on an electric guitar and learn that "path".
Dave, you haven't obiously achieved the missions with string bends, because those are hard to play fast on an acoustic guitar. Also you are going to face a huge problem with an accoustic guitar at lvl9 mission building speed where you are going to see frets 8-16 only and most of the accoustics dont have that many frets to play on
Yeah dave don't be so entitled
Dave your a stupid A**. Because i have an acoustic guitar and i really want this feature. Not because our guitars cant hammer or stuff. Just more chord or fingerpicking training would be better than power chords since you dont really usr them on acoustic guitar. Just think further than all about yourself Dave. Really
Your guitar must be a piece of crap if you can't hammer on with it. Acoustic or not you should be able to do the leads in at least 80% of the lead guitar stuff. Also the rhythm path is great for what you're mention.
No joke tho if you cannot play up to the ninth level lead level with an acoustic I would recommend getting a set up to make it easier to play.
