I knew this request had to have been submitted by others. As a fellow developer, I understand workloads can be tough to manage and priorities are always shifting. However this should be close to the top of your guys priorities.
You guys/girls have an amazing application for learning the guitar. Im a complete beginner at 31 years old and did extensive research and purchased several different learning programs (including Rocksmith). However, this app is hands down superior and I am gravitating towards using this as my main learning source. You guys need to add some voice recognition so I don't have to get up out of my chair, walk to the tv, restart, and then race back to my chair to catch the first notes of the song.
If this is not something that can be easily achieved, maybe you could program the G chord to restart a song/lesson/riff, maybe program a C chord select continue? Just some ideas.
Again, Love your application. Needs voice commands badly.
If this is a large effort and not something is going to be prioritized, I like the idea others suggested about adding a configurable pause length before it starts. I'd still have to get up and walk to the laptop connected to the tv via hdmi between each 2 minute practice module, but it would eliminate the need to race back to my chair with guitar in hand, then hopefully make it on time. It creates bad form from the start.
Adding hot keys would be no different than what it is right now. Instead of clicking a mouse that is stationary over the restart button is no different than hitting a hot key.
