Correct the color for slides (and some hammer ons and pull offs)
The color of the notes in the slide section is often wrong. Since a slide should be done with one finger, the color of the note before the slide should be the same as the color of the note after the slide. This is mostly not the case, indicating that the color coding is incorrect.
A few hammer ons and pull offs have the same problem. The notes before and after the hammer on or pull off should have different colors, since they are played with different fingers. This is sometimes not the case.
Please fix these wrong color codings or give us on option to change them ourselves.
Hi everyone, and thank you for your feedback!
We are glad to announce an improved finger color algorithm that, besides other corrections, prevents slides from being incorrectly shown.
This is now available on the desktop (PC/Mac) version of the app and will be implemented on Android and iOS on the next mobile update.
Really, I thought there is a didactic concept and I tried hard to play the "correct" fingers!!!! An algorithm? As a teacher? Sorry, that's inappropriate!!! That's misleading. You have to tell that in the tutorials, otherwise you teach wrong technique!!! Remove all non intentional colours, please!
I'm missing a video about how to do a slide (on ukelele). The way I do now, it says I'm doing wrong.
Thank you , developers! =))))))
I really wish they would sort this out - the problem is that the incorrect colours badly interfere with reading the music - they force you to spend a bunch of time memorising the fingering to learn where to actively ignore the indicated fingering.
Incorrect colours are *much* worse than not having the colours at all.
For me the ability to switch off the colours would be an acceptable workaround to the problem.
They just added the track editor to Yousician and I noticed there are no colors. I'm kind of hoping that adding colors is close on the todo list because the same code can be used to edit existing tracks that have errors.
As someone that works in software dev. I'm hoping that's the path they have chosen and it won't be too long before we see it fixed.
Okay so im not the only one with this problem!!about thank goodness!! This makes playinh and learning that much tougher! I agree with Tom's idea, give an option or fix the problem.
this is my biggest complaint with yousician.
exactly my thoughts, thank you!
Yes i've added 3 voices from Russia. Please correct the color codes!!! I want to buy this program, but it is incorrect, errored and buged program! How can i buy program that want to confuse me? If there is some actions to correct the problem from developers?? How peoples contiues to use it, just ignore the color codes?
P.S. Sorry for my english.

I'm still at level four because the the level songs are too fast but I'm dealing with it. Moving on to learn new techniques but the songs are too fast while learning to use new techniques.. Dealing with that too. Moving on to slides and what the hell is going on with the color codes !?!? And now seeing this has been a problem since July !?!? I'm about to cancel this program. I really seen potential in the first four levels but...

We shouldn't have to ask for this as an added feature. It is simply incorrect and needs to be corrected.
If there are two or more notes in the chord to play with one hand these notes should coloured according to fingers that play them, not just one colour. It's very confusing, doesn't help to learn.... We don't have two index fingers, or three thumbs, do we? :)

It looks like the Yousician guys are looking into this, per this forum post: https://app.yousician.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=425&p=1660#p1660 - but I think it's great to upvote it here as well to improve visibility.
Andrew said that the color codes are currently defined by a script, but it looks like the script has some issues. Perhaps as part of this investigation, they can also fix some of the weird fingering suggestions that happen at the start of songs and at transition points. For instance, Greensleeves starts on the D string, second fret, and the color-coding recommends that this be played with the index finger. But since the next note is on the B string, first fret, it makes way more sense to play the first note with the middle finger.
