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 learning.
I think that if this was added to Yousician, you could hear and appreciate what did you played as well as comparing the harder and easier parte and enjoy your work.
I see there is an option to ‘play for me’ in practice mode that turns on or off the play-back of the instrument one is trying to learn... I like this feature, but I think it would be great if the rest of the backing track’s volume could be turned up or down relative to the notes one should be focused on playing...

It's a good idea
Please make it so I can take off the training wheels. I don’t want to hear the bass line when I am trying to learn to actually play the bass track. Thank you.
Agree this is a highly desirable feature. If I had a music teacher, they wouldn't play the song with me... I want to have the option to enable /disable the overdub of my instrument (the guitar) : I want to just hear my playing!
Someone on the facebook page suggested having two versions available that are labeled differently in the song library. So you could choose.
A solution could be an option in the practice mode or mixer to shift between a backing track with or without guitar that you are playing. I can't vote on this because I don't have more votes left. But I like the idea.
Me too. It's distracting when your trying to play over another instrument and can't hear your own playing properly. That's why one of my favorite genres is classical because often your accompanying another completely different instrument and your own fits in and compliments the mix when recording.
If you record your own playing, there is something very satisfying when it all comes together and sounds like it all belongs together. When you overdub another instrument it just sounds messy and pretentious as well as being difficult to analyse your playing and spot your mistakes. Especially if you are trying to improve your phrasing and another instrument is playing the same part.
