  1. Show chord/scale when playing on Lead Guitar song

    when playing a song on Lead Guitar path, it would be great to show the chord or scale used on every piece of the song, it would be great for learning music theory, and very helpful (for example, for jazz tunes)

  3. Training path to Classic pieces

    I love Yousician, because it is a lot of fun to play.
    However, one comment I have is that it does not teach you a specific classic piece (piano or guitar) that you can later on play (also without the app).
    It would be great to have a training path to some of the classics (for example Moonlight Sonata, Bach prelude in C, etc.), with specific exercises for some of the more difficult parts.
    As a result after completing an exercises you could actually perform the piece without the help of tablet/phone to show you friends and family.

  4. Hanon Exercises (for Piano, Guitar, Etc)

    Hi, just my 2 cents for the development of the App which by the way is awesome.
    Let's have another learning "Branch", a 4th one complementing the "paths of Knowledge/Creativity, Classical and Pop".
    Sometimes some of us don't want to learn another song. We just want to stretch, exercise and maintain endurance and stamina. So an "Exercise Path" or similar can be done. Something like Hanon's The Virtuoso Piano would be a Masterpiece for the App. Please Check: http://amzn.com/0793525446. Also those formulas can be translated on other instruments too (Bass, Guitar, Etc), and even add an Junior Version to…

  6. Yousician Staff Music Tutors

    Feature Request Idea

    Yousician Staff Music Tutors

    Yousician has been such an amazing tool for self-learning the basics of guitar. It keeps me engaged, motivated and is challenging enough to foster improvement, without becoming overwhelming. This is a balance that the YS team is maintaining brilliantly.

    An added bonus has been the community that came along with the app! I had no idea how invaluable this group of people would become in my journey of learning to play guitar! Starting with the forums, to the Facebook Group to Discord chat and member videos. I'm delighted that all of us, all…

  7. Different Colour for Early and Late

    When the notes start coming faster it's hard to tell whether your being docked for being too early or too late on a note. A simple solution would be to have the text for early and late be a different colour.

  8. chords

    It would be great if you could search a chord (or have a list of all chords) and then see how to play it.

    For some reason having started out on Yousician I can only understand how to play new chords if I see it in your format.

  9. VST plugin support

    It may be a long shot but I'd love to see integrated plugin support. I often use amp simulation so I can hear my guitar how I like while still giving yousician a dry signal. I can't really do this and use the new improved asio support so I kind of have to choose one or the other.

  10. Fretboard trainer

    It would be nice to have a fretboard training option.
    a little game that shows a certain fret on a certain string and that asks you what note it is. Or vice versa, the app asks to play a certain note on a certain string

  11. count in on section practice

    I think it would be helpful.. if when you practice only a small section.. you could toggle on, a count in.. it would make It easier to break things up in phrases.. that didn't start really abruptly...

  12. guitar chord chart

    Give us a cheat sheet for guitar chords to either include a hand drawn picture of the best finger position or an actual picture. Yes, I can download something off of the internet. But it would be more useful to have this built into the app as a refresher/knowledge base for new users to immediately find.

  13. Listen the song with actual Guitar tune

    Hi,

    Right now Yousician allows to listen the song in practice mode but it does not give an idea like how would it play when some professional play it on guitar.

    I think it would be great if you can also start including the actual guitar tune so player can understanding the difference between the way they are playing and how it would play with perfection.

    Thanks,

  14. Ability to change the finger color coding

    In some cases the finger color coding is not optimal. It would be good to have the option to change the colors according to your playing style. This is especially useful for imported songs. It can be annoying to see the wrong colors and it takes away concentration.

    You can always include the option 'reset to default'.

  15. Change output device

    I find myself changing my computer's default audio when I play so I can hear Yousician through my preferred speakers. I think it would be great if I could choose an output audio device for Yousician.

  18. Rhythm Count

    Display rhythm in a precise way, ex. 1 2 and and 4. I'd like to be shown strum direction as well, ex. down down up up down. I've also seen others suggest clips of live guitar playing upcoming parts, this in x combination with aforementioned suggestions (I think) would supply better understanding of rhythm ideas being presented.

  19. Retina support for Mac version

    The Yousician application looks awful on a retina Mac screen. Please consider making a retina specific application.

  20. Escape key to go back instead of quitting the application

    Use Escape key to go back instead of quitting the application (at least on Windows)
