  1. Allow an "on/off" switch for the "video game" style incidental music.

    I have a hard time taking myself seriously, especially when playing where others can here, when I hear the incidental "video game" type sounds in between tracks. I've looked for an "on/off" switch in controls but don't see that option. I would like to have the option to turn them off and leave the track volume where it is at.

  2. Reverse arrows for strumming directions (e.g. for left-handed)

    It would be nice if it would be possible to change the arrows of the strumming direction. Arrow shows up, but I have to do a down-strum. This is a bit weird to me. I play my uke on the wrong side with reversed string, so it is a bit complicated for me.

  3. song wishlist

    The song list isn't really great right now. Just got premium and i have to say that I'm kind of disappointed.
    It would be nice to have a wishlist tab where people can post and vote for song names. And you add some "professional" songs from time to time. So the people which voted for the song would be happy and the others would also profit from it.

    I know we can add gp files ourselves, but when paying 20$ a month I would expect not to do this on my own. And when reviewing what garbage some is published…

  6. Scrolling through song by swiping on the main notation area

    I use mobile version, and during early stages of learning a song, I will scroll through the song using the white circle on the bottom bar. This is difficult due the fact that a small movement of the finger can cause you to lose your place in the song. It would be good to be able to move along the main tab area by swiping over that tab area itself.

  8. Setting to Show Scale Numbers (Roman Numberals) Instead of Note Letter

    In order to remember how to play what I learn on guitar I use the scale numbers, whether it's the chord progression, e.g. a standard 12 bar blues is 1-4-1-5-4-1, or Sympathy for the Devil is a 1,7,4,1, and the melody to "When the Saints go Marching In" is 1,2,3,4; 1,2,3,4; 1,2,3,4,3,1,3,2;.... So it's easy to do in any key, and just not forget in general, I've remembered these for years and I've forgotten more than I'll ever know. I make a lot less mistakes than relying on muscle memory now that I study scale numbers, so the usefulness is…

  9. Modern Staff Notation for Yousician Guitar on iOS

    I would like the ability to view modern staff notation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musicalnotation#Modernstaff_notation) for the Guitar on iOS.

    I've seen a couple of other suggestions, that seem to have been similar to this one, but I wanted to be very clear about this specific request.

    I want to be able to see notation in the app that is essentially identical to the notation that I enter into GuitarPro. Others have requested hybrid views that show which finger and other enhancements such as color and ways of dealing with the UI when different note lengths are played (quarter note,…

  10. Add more songs to low levels

    when you reach certain levels its hard to play new songs, it would make more sense to have more songs on lower levels as optional.

  11. Add custom favorite lists

    At the moment there is only one list where we can add favorite songs. Please add the ability to create multiple lists by the user (e.g. "to learn", "romantic", etc...). And make it easier to add songs to a (custom) list. Should be accessible/addable also on overview level.

  12. Move the pause menu to the right to stop it covering the most important part of the score

    When paused, the menu pops up at the left! This is usually over the top of the exact part of the score that you're struggling with and paused it in the first place! Very frustrating as you cannot study the score without dragging the slider which is very difficult on large scores!
    Have the pop up pause menu at the right hand side; since most people are right handed.

  13. Missing skill build-up lesson chain

    The lessons are too easy to pass, and also they are pretty uncomplicated compared to the skill tests, which suddenly require a sudden change in speed in reading and changing chords, that can not be acquired with doing the lessons, since those are usually of low speed. This easily builds up an illusion of progress in the user, which turns into acrid disappointment and frustration when missing the skill test due to inadequate skills, but all-golds in the lessons. There should be a better balance.

    My suggestion would be a larger number of lessons in between levels, which first introduce…

  14. Htc compatibility

    I really like the yousician app, but when I try to download it on my HTC M8 One phone (android), it says this version of Yousician is incompatible with my device. I don't understand why because Guitartuna works just fine, even the free yousician songs in Guitartuna work. Please update or make an HTC compatible version so I can use Yousician!

  16. Option to turn off Lesson time

    Yousician should allow the user to turn off lesson time if they wish. This would be for the free users only.

  19. find a way to indicate or demonstrate complex rhythms

    "Hammer of Thor," great exercise, but the graphical limitations of the moving tab make it hard to know what complex rhythm is represented. It wasn't until I listened to the track that I understood you were looking for a mix of eights and quarter-note triplets. How about a demo recording with the desired melody only without the background accompaniment. I know there's pedagogical reasons not to supply a demo recording, but there's no other way to indicate the presence of complex rhythms in the current setup.

  20. Retina support for Mac version

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