  1. Yousician team should be more active with the community

    I find it very surprising that Yousician can afford not to actively foster the community of users and customers they have. I don't really see any comments from the Yousician staff to any of these ideas posted by users (it's free product development feedback!), nor do I see Yousician being active on the discussion forums. I understand that some decisions like removing the user generated content may not have been popular, but typically I would at least expect some basic level of decency with a proper thank you for the feedback even if there are no plans to react as…

  2. Make a subscribtion that includes all popular songs but only includes one instrument.

    Because many people like me can't afford to pay for premium+ just to get popular songs. Most people using yousician want popular songs but only want to learn one instrument, so I suggest we have a subscribtion between premium and premium+ which includes all popular songs but only one instrument of choice.

  3. Song length

    Please give an indication of the song duration in the 'progress panel'; also indicate the current time during progress or when you move the cursor (like a classic player).

  4. Advertising to get funding for the app instead of charging.

    Acorn is an app is is essentially free to use to invest, store, and budget your money for free.
    YouTube is a site that shows us user created videos for free. Both of those companies made deals with other companies and artists by accepting their funding instead of accepting funding from their users. Yousician has the potential to acquire new music, new teachers, and advertisers by allowing artists, record labels, and manufacturers to push their product during, before and after each lesson. The revenue from those interactions should at least bring down the cost of learning on this app

  5. Cord Shapes on Strings

    When the ball is rolling to a initial Cords first three strums indicating frets shape for a C it would be helpful to show the notes on the strings as to assist in memorization of the shape. That is just include yousician shape guide that already exists at the top of the screen and lay it over the rolling fret string guides first three strums only.

  6. Piano Sustain Pedal Support

    Yousician Piano currently lacks any mention of the sustain pedal, which is important for making songs sound good. At some intermediate point in the piano learning tracks I'd like to see an instructional lesson on how to use the pedal, and at least for MIDI devices some feedback on whether it's being used correctly.

  7. List the song tempo / rhythm and key

    Just showing the tempo (number), rhythm and key for a song. When I'm trying to play a song in Yousician from memory, it would be nice to have this basic info.

  8. Ghost notes (dead notes) lessons for Bass

    It would be awesome to have lessons on muted/ghost notes. Muting is talked about briefly, but really we need lesson videos, and SONGS to play with these muted notes. Almost every genre has bass playing with "ghost" notes which are muted notes played for bass and there are a few songs in Yousician with them, but there is no lesson. It seems a huge omission. Lesson and lots of practice songs with muted notes. Once these lessons and songs (at various levels) are there, then any song with muted notes can be played (Premium Plus songs have muted notes [e.g.…

  9. More singing lessons

    The singing lessons helped a rookie like myself but they are not as expansive as the guitar learning path. I need more lessons for singing please.

  10. Transpose notes feature

    Even in the beginning there are a lot of songs in different keys. This adds additional difficulty for a beginner, who hardly knows one or two scales. So the function that automatically transposes notes to any key will help beginners to play songs they like and have more practice. A lot of electronic pianos and synths have transpose function, so using this feature should be easy.

  13. Various speed levels for Scale/Appregio workouts

    It would be great to have multiple speed levels for scale and appregio workouts (up to lighning fast). For example there could be five (or six) speed levels and you have to unlock the next one be getting all Gold-stars on your current level.

    Also add workouts for more scales (like harmonic minor and non-diatonic scales) and diminished appregios.

  14. notifications

    We REALLY need a function or something implemented that allows us view notifications as per the instrument we have selected, rather than all notifications across all instruments showing up in the same list.

  15. Weekly challenge for Premium+ songs

    For those of us who are motivated by some healthy competition the weekly challenges are a big part of what makes Yousician fun. So when playing the Premium+ songs you sort of miss the competition a bit.

    Adding another weekly challenge for Premium+ songs shouldn't require too much development work. And it would also be a great way to introduce new Premium+ songs.

  16. Different Instruments on Different Platforms

    I use Yousician on multiple platforms (Mac/PC/iOS). Each one is set up for a particular instrument. When I change instrument on one platform, the others change too. I'd like the instrument selection to be saved on each platform so that I don't have to keep switching when I change platforms.

  18. Option to disable all premium + adverts when already having a subscription

    The idea is simple. I know about premium + but I’m also having no interest in it. For paying customers as myself it should be possible to deactivate the bar with the the upgrade button and the display of all premium songs.

    Simply add a deactivate slide option under the settings.

  19. Possibility to control guitar/bass/piano/uke volumes on backing tracks

    Let's say I play a guitar song for the first time, having a guitar perfectly recorded playing that part in the mix is nice to have an idea of how I'm supposed to sound. but once I learned it, it would be great if I could control that guitar track volume with a slider, even mute it, so I can hear all the details of my playing in the mix.

    These backing tracks with the guitar playing the same notes tend to mask mistakes that would be heard otherwise.

    this feature could be implemented automatically to the instrument one is…

  20. Don't let Yousician kick me out of a song if I'm not doing very well

    Currently if I'm struggling to hit notes in song mode Yousician will tell me it can't hear my guitar, turn red and then kick me out of the song suggesting I practice.

    This is pretty annoying as I'm still trying to play the song and it disrupts my learning; its also a pretty negative approach for an educational app.

    Yes I can use practice mode, but that should be my choice. Let me finish the song and achieve whatever score I can and then try to beat it next time.
