Re: Please explain difficulty levels

Here's what Thomas sent:

"When it comes to Bootcamp lessons, the "easy, moderate and hard" labels will impact the behavior of the instant feedback. For example, lessons designated as "easy" will have a more lenient scoring.

Hope this provides some clarification."

Re: Please explain difficulty levels

I'm a beginner and I'm Ok that PGS isn't geared toward advanced players. I'd just like to know if the ranking system within a level has any utility so I can get a handle on how I'm progressing.

Please explain difficulty levels

Hi, I noticed that there are difficulty levels assigned to boot camp lessons, although the vast majority are labeled easy. I really could not make heads or tails of what that means. For example, the intermediate level block chord lessons mostly are all 'easy', the intermediate left hand only broken ...

Re: Prevent a lesson from being marked as completed when it's being played at half speed

It would also be nice if a lesson were marked complete if the challange module was completed regardless if the earlier modules had been done or not. Honestly, some of the lessons have a lot of redundancy and it may not necessary for every student to complete every module, and some students may do be...

Re: Let it be sheet music

I play the E with my left thumb. Essentially,I pick up my thumb and drop it. Another thing about that passage is that it positions the R hand to play the E with the thumb but a different right hand position to play essentially the same passage the second time through. Not a big deal but if it weren'...

Lifetime Membership Change

Did Playground recently change the terms of a Lifetime membership?
If so, are previous Lifetime members grandfathered in to the old terms?

Re: Flat Symbol not showing for chords

I just moved playground to a new build for my studio with a Fresh install of Windows 10. I now don't have the b symbol. Yes, I installed the supplemental Japanese fonts to no avail. The old system built 3 years ago with Windows 10 had zero issues with the font without even adding the Japanese supple...

Re: Your Most Challenging Lessons

I see. I also found some strangeness in the Cm lesson where the backing track drops out if you loop the second half of the lesson but not if you start at the beginning. Back to the original topic: I just hit the broken chord lessons in BC. I've really had spend more time on this new skill, especiall...

Re: Add daily scales practice

Scales, scales, scales. There should be Ionian and Aeolian two octave scales in 8ths and 16ths. You really don't need to have extensive tutorials, just a quick explanation of the transitions. Anyone doing these drills should have already been practicing the one octave scales and able to play them co...
