Skill Test Guitar Chords BEFORE Song
Please, please, please x1000 make the guitar chord trainers -the ones under the skill tests where you have to play chords in a random order on a time limit - available BEFORE you have to play some crazy song to unlock it.
Let me explain why this would be an extremely good idea by explaining the situation I am currently in.
So I just unlocked rhythm level 6 (the one where you now have to learn Fancy Chords and Big Riffing), and I am simply overwhelmed by all the new chords I have to memorize to play the new songs (G-family, 7ths etc.). Normally, I would practice the skill-test chord trainer before putting any real effort into the songs, so that I could properly learn the chords needed for the mission. However, as one progresses further into the missions, the songs that you need to play before unlocking the much needed chord trainer become harder, and therefore the chord trainer becomes inaccessible.
Why do I not just use the in-mission chord trainers you ask? Well, they suck. You only get to play the chords once before you have to reset and they come in a certain order, so you cannot really train how to change your fretting hand position from different starting points. The skill mission chord trainer is just way more practical for continuous practice, as you don’t have to press “continue” each time for a new chord to pop up, but rather it changes automatically each time you play a chord correctly. I have also noticed that while practicing the chords with the skill test chord trainer that I learn them faster and more efficiently.
I do not know if I am the only one, who practices chords like this - only time (and votes) will tell - but I find it to be the easiest way to progress through the rhythm path.

I'd like to echo the above, and also add that it'd be nice to give the chord trainer a home under the Workouts subheading. Ideally, it could link directly to your current level or let you pick a level (or chords!)

Sure! We need this feature, I am so frustrated to be blocked on my right tree because I forgot almost all of the chords. I just remember the cowboys ones
It also might be a good idea to have a separate section for all the trainers and exercises as well as having them in the missions. That way you can easily find and practice them at any time rather than having to search through the missions for the ones you are looking for.
I agree with this. I keep running into fancy chords that I do not remember how to play, and struggle to find where they were first learned. It doesn't help that the finger picking section doesn't list the chords at all, thus sparking a treasure hunt through old levels.

Maybe they could just make the chord trainers in the mission the same as the skill test ones?
