More training on strumming patterns
I’m at level 10 on lead guitar and 9 on rhythmic, yet my ability to strum along songs still suck. I’d love to see a dedicated level to teach more strumming patterns, and more songs (with vocals) to practice strumming along.

Agree with above. Yousician often changes strumming patterns mid song, that's very annoying and off putting when the aim of that particular exercise is something completely different. The platform is quite good for individual notes and lead, but completely hopeless for chords and rhythm in my opinion. My children are using Yousician, but once they've completed to a level we're happy with, I'll be cancelling the family membership

other similar apps e.g. Kala. are doing exectly that. they present the strumming pattern of the song. let you learn and practise it and than you are for the vhord changes during the song

If we can get strumming pattern practice for the patterens used in song before starting a song it will be great.

I am aware that there are other ideas about improvements to rhythm playing, but I would like to see a skill builder section for strumming which incorporates various rhythmic patterns on a loop. This is so you could build muscle memory with the up/down patterns moving from simple 4/4 upto more complex reggae bluebeat patterns.
100% agree here. I have a friend who is basically just using youtube to learn a couple popular songs, while he can't transition chords as fast as I can or play single notes even at all he is able to pull of songs that people recognize after far less time investment. While I feel 100% confident I'm building a far more useful and productive foundation it's demotivating. I have no doubt at all that yousician would see more people stick with their program far longer if they introduced this earlier or even really at all.
