  1. Instead of having to keep up with the tempo, give the option to practice accuracy

    So the song only moves forward if I get the notes correct

  2. Add ability to toggle drums, vocals etc from track

    It would be great to customise tracks to toggle features such as drums, vocals etc. So I could use the app to play the song with others band members. For example I want play the guitar with guidance from Yousician and a drummer plays the drums rather than it on the backing track, but still have Yousician play the vocals and other instruments.
    But make customisable so you can decide what you want to turn off and on.
    Support for "muti-player" would be good, so multiple band members could run the app, but the song time-line is synced so everyone…

  3. 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…

  4. Requested song sorting option

    Currently you can filter requested songs as “hot,” “recent,” etc. It would be really helpful if we could also sort by artist alphabetically. This would obviously require users to enter their requested songs in a specific manner, but it would be a big help. I’m sure Yousician could analyze which artists get more responses than others, and could better fill their customers needs.

  6. Band codes

    Friends could send "band codes" which they could connect together and play the same song together

  7. SKIP update or UPDATE LATER option

    Updating takes a lot of time and often ruins the app on certain windows devices instead of improving it. It takes ages to get a fix (I am talking from experience). Please add a SKIP or UPDATE LATER (whatever you want to call it) button on the little window with progress of sucking the new update. I want to update YS app when I am sure that it works fine on my windows. It should be easy for devs to implement - and will help a lot

  8. Colour/theme options (since update 2.58)

    The new pastel colours are terrible with update 2.58. The green and aquamarine blue (thumb and ring fingers) now look nearly identical which makes it really hard to play! Allow users to go back to the old colour scheme or allow users to choose the individual colours they want to use per finger and provide a full colour palette to choose from.

  9. Metronome improvements

    Two suggestions:

    1) Show the BPM at which the metronome is running.
    2) Adjustable clicks per beat (1 to 16) would be great. It could be useful to avoid 'silence' between main clicks when practice in slow mode. Furthermore it helps in songs with 'fancy' rhythms.

  11. Please add a mute instrument feature

    Hi,

    It has been bothering me for some quite time that there is already a guitar in the songs I play, when I suppose to be the one playing that instrument. It creates a duplicate that causes me to lower the volume of yousician just to hear my playing and better judge when I am succesful or not. It would be great to have a “mute instrument” feature for those songs that already have that instrument integrated on the track.

    I think that duplicate helps at beginning levels (because the yousician players sound pretty good), but when you want to…

  12. Guitar: Beginner optional indicator for when and where to move hand position

    For beginners, It would be great to have an optional visual cue for when and where to move hand position on the guitar.

  13. sort songs by times played

    I would like to have an option to sort the entire song catalog by numbers of times I have played each song -- both ascending and descending. Perhaps with the existing filtering capabilities (by level range, genre and so on).

    The ultimate outcome is to find new songs which I have never played. Or played only a few times. This is to make sure I'm not missing a jewel of a song just because I don't know it exists. Also it would show me my true favourites.

    Even better if, there was some timestamp on when played the last time,…

  14. Set Account To Preferred Type of Music

    Yousician Users should be required to set their accounts to the type of music they like upon registration and / or by changing their Account settings. Like so, the songs featured during mission and workout sessions would be suitable to the user’s taste in music. Especially when singing. In addition, this option should suitably and solely implement and recommend a collection of songs in the home page / Yousician Collections based on the user’s preferred type of music which is specified in their account settings.

    E.g. if I change my settings to “Christian Music”, in that case Yousician should solely…

  15. BPM control for automatic speed adjustment in practice mode

    When speed increases in percents in practice mode, the increase gets larger when the speed increases. I'd rather have it so that I could control the speed increments by BPM. For example, increase the speed always by 3 BPM. This way the speed increase is less dramatic and frustrating than it is currently. Now I need to manually adjust the speed, which is really difficult to do accurately (there's another issue about that).

  17. 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

  18. View only songs I have never completed before

    Similar to the "collect missing stars" or the "go for gold" views, have one for songs I have never completed or attempted

  19. More advanced music theory

    Love the idea, but doesn't have much to offer an intermediate player looking to become more advanced (other than learning complex songs). Adding more scales (modes), arpeggios, and sight reading exercises.

  20. 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).
