Please re-enable to option to upload songs
I recently just started using this feature and found it very promising. I find Yousician to be a great tool to learn and practice how to play a song, so I was very excited to find I could import my GuitarPro arrangements. However, with that feature recently being deprecated, I'm very disappointed now because I have to re-think how I'm going to use Yousician.
Thank you for voting.
Unfortunately, it is not currently in the plans to re-introduce the ability for users to upload songs. We thank you for your understanding.
Would give 1000000 votes for this if I could!
You can now export your files in .gp5 in Guitar Pro 7. This functionality is available in the last update 7.0.4.
Launch the updater to start using Guitar Pro 7.0.4:
- Windows : menu Help > Check for updates…
- macOS : menu Guitar Pro 7 > Check for updates…

Allow music to be created from "mobile devices" like phones or tablets for those of us that don't use a standard computer any more.

The SongCreator for guitar is great. The user-generated songs for piano are AN EMBARRASSMENT by comparison!
I'd use it all day and night. You'd have to pay me to stop using it.

GP7 can now export GP5 :)

Because there is no SongCreator for the Piano version, I think there should be one. Judging by the other song creators, it seems pretty easy to add.
Of course, it might be harder than it looks, but I would really like this feature instead of making my own MusicXML file that is all messed up when importing and doesn't even have the right notes also when importing.
I would probably use this feature all-day instead of playing the available preset Piano songs or my lessons.
I prefer guitar pro because you can record decent quality backing tracks directly from the app already synched with your tabs.
Other tools will usually make themselves compatible with guitar pro for the open source market anyway..

It would be much better to support MuseScore output instead. Guitar Pro is expensive and does not work on some platforms (used to have Linux version, but it is no more).
MuseScore can read Guitar Pro files, provides very nice notation editor (including tablature support), is free, open source and cross-platform.
As TuxGuitar is practically a dead project now too GP files is not a good choice for import format any more.
As long as gpx isn't supported you can open these files for example in tuxguitar and save them in another file format or you can use another conversion tool, I think there exist some
import .MIDI files in yousician app so that i can practice bollywood songs
(for your reference this kind of feature available in synthesia)

This is a critical requirement for me. A large part of the value I derive from Yousician comes from the user upload feature. +2 votes from me!
A lot of people use Guitar Pro to create songs for Yousician using the .gp3, .gp4 and gp5 formats.
Unfortunately the latest version of Guitar Pro 7 no longer supports saving to these older file formats but will export Guitar Pro 6 (.gpx) files.
Unfortunately Yousician doesn't support any file format newer than 5.x which means there is a very real danger of the user song upload feature being made obsolete.
It would be great if Yousician could add support for Guitar Pro 6 and 7 files.
How can I remove background music without adding more
Uploading songs is an issue if the songs have been purchased but these are not free for distribution. So, it'll be great having the possibility to load locally stored files, without submitting them to the whole world.

Crowdsource the content like YouTube. So instead you would be providing a platform for other people to create new instrument types and knowledge paths. This way you (Yousician) can focus on the engine and basic features/customizability while leaving the content to others.
Please consider partnering with online sheet music sites such as http://www.musicnotes.com/ or http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/ to enable Yousician users to purchase songs and play them within the application.
RockSmith partnered with Guitarcenter and were able to add many songs from different genres to their catalog.
It would be an interesting experiment to see if tablature could be scronized/extracted from uploaded mp3 files. In a private fashion of course(wouldn't want to violate copyright). But a scan of the tab file analyzed against an analysis of the performance might be possible.
There are lots of ideas about how to do this that have fewer votes, for example: Premium songs
I guess it is time to upgrade yousician and add premium licensed famous songs. I would definitely pay extra for professionally done tabs (with all the right chords and color coding) and the original song as background music, preferably with the option to mute the original guitar.
You could charge less for members and once bought we would own the song forever.
Another really fun and motivating option is to show after each level, which famous songs we should be able to play.
(For custom songs it is often frustrating that the color coding or chord names are not correct or the parts are way too long. Also the sound quality is mostly bad.)
