-I want to play with my friends together.
-Play against each other for a rating.
Matthew Astroth commented
Definitely want this!!!
It should also have different levels so a level 10 can play with a level 0.
This could also work to market the app as your users will be introducing new people to the app and instrument.
The other day I had this great idea for Yousician, so I wanted to share it here. Maybe it is too much, but I am gonna share it anyway;
1st I thought, how cool would it be if I could play songs together with my kids. Me on the guitar, and my daugther on the Ukalele for instance. You already have many songs available for multiple instruments...
Could be on different devices with a synced start, or just split screen on one computer.
Then I thought about the old days with guitar hero, and thought how cool would it even be if I could play together with total strangers, and maybe even become friends and form a band.
for instance two guitar players, a singer and a bass. (and hopefully in the future also a drummer [still desperately waiting for that too ;-) ])
And we can all play a song exactly synced over the internet. That will be a challenge I think, but I've seen some promising invention during corona, of someone that made it possible for his whole orchestra to play in sync online to practice...
But also the guitars should not do the main melody line, that would be for the singer right, so maybe some songs would need some more accompanying versions (2nd or 3rd voice)
I know this would be a huge project, but it would definitely be a cool addition, and definitely separate Yousician from its competitors.
I wish that you could play the same song at the same time together with someone that you follow.

My sister and I are both learning the guitar, and would like to play together but different parts, a multiplay mode would be so great. Her husband is also learning the panino, this would be ideal for us
I am learning guitar and my son is learning uculele... now we want to play together using yousican. Is there a possibility, to sync two devices, so that i see the guitar notes and my sun sees the ukulele at the same time? It would be amazing ! No we are trying to sync our devices by pressing the start button at the same time... that does not realy work ....
Same here. Playing with kids - 3 different instruments. Willing to pay extra for such feature! Yousician - what say you?
It should be possible for two different yousician users to play together. A synchronization mode between different yousician users.
For example: I play bass, a friend of mine plays guitar and when we get together we can start a synchronized song but each one has his own music tabs.
Great idea !!!!

I tried this with a friend by opening the app on multiple devices and starting the songs (for different instruments) at the same time. Unfortunately it sounded terrible together, since they aren’t written with this capability in mind. It would be cool if they’d start creating versions of these songs designed to allow you to select which supported instruments to include and allow them all to be played at once.
YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!
Please do this!
It would be AMAZING!!!
So, you can put a search for other people to play the song. When the app finds someone, you decide on a song to play. Then you play against each other for a rating. And slowly you advance higher and higher, gaining cosmetics or something like that along the way. Essentially giving a versus mode to players and adding something like a battle pass along the way
Have multiple users, each with their own device, playing the same song (like a jam session). One could be guitar, one bass, one piano, one voice, and each playing at their own level for the song.

In person Band feature
play together live where all members in the same room can play the same song at the same time. Would work great for friend/bands and families who like to play together!!!
You can have 2 or more players playing guitar at the same time and competing for the highest score

I would like to see people able to sync up the start. Guitar, bass etc. able to start together to play together. Bandsician
Yes please! I have 3 accounts for my family members (family account pricing being a distinct request) and we like to play together.
I would want to be able to somehow sync the 3 playbacks of the same song. This may be done all on one screen (horizontal bands for each player and/or instrument); alternatively some sort of remote synchronization so that both Yousician apps start at the same time (probably harder to implement).
Note that "pushing play at the same time" doesn't really solve the problem:
- there is always a little lag/timing to this, and even a half beat off really throws it out of whack
- you are inevitably focused on pushing play and not on the actual music at the start of the song
- not all songs start at the same place for different instruments - bass and guitar often start a bar or two apart, making alignment of synchronized starts even more confusing
Is it possible to sync more than one device together so that a guitar can play on one device a piano on another device Etc and sync up so that they can all play together at the same time?

Be able to play lead and Chord at the same time with a friend (online or 2 iPad in sync or somehow on the same iPad)
also would be great if you could toggle easily between different family members on the same accounts - track progress different for each user without having to actually create separate accounts.
Yes! you could join and form many different 'bands' with other users, all practicing and playing the same songs...and then have a feature to synchronize performances together. Would be awesome.
