Re: Song Request Locked

The very first post in that forum has a link to a new song request form. Unless you read that post, it's easy to miss why the forum list is locked.

Re: FINGERING VS LETTER OF NOTE NOTATIONS

Awesome! I was thinking the exact same thing this week and was about to make a post. I'm glad I read this one first. I'd definitely be interested in seeing both the finger numbers and the note names at the same time. I've been good with the treble clef since I had played another instrument many year...

Re: Playing with both hands

I think your lesson 36 Session 6 is the same as my Lesson 38 Session 6...is yours on Counting Music - Subdivision? When I got to that lesson, I felt it was very out of place compared to the lessons previously. The concept of counting subdivisions wasn't bad, but the level of 2 hand coordination went...

Re: "Hidden" shortcut

I just tried that and it does work for me when I hit both keys simultaneously. :D

Re: Practice Schedule

I'm jealous! 2 to 2.5 hours of practice a day would be fantastic. I had 2 weeks vacation at the end of the year and loved to practice for an hour when I got up in the morning, and possibly another 30 minutes later in the day. But now that I'm back to my normal work week and only have 3 hours in the ...

Re: Time Signature question

I started in November and was in the exact same position you are now. See 2 posts above yours. It felt really strange at first, but I've gotten used to it now...it just took about a week after my post and some regular practice to adjust and internalize the pattern for 4/2 again. I think that it is p...

Re: Extremely disappointed with the Song Library interface

It would be really nice to be able to filter the songs not just at the Rookie, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, but also at the sub levels (easy, moderate, and hard).

Re: Possible to mute sound from keyboard, but keep Auto-play keyboard sound on?

I've also had a similar question but had found that setting/adjusting my computer volume eliminated the duplicate sound of the midi playback coming through my speakers. I don't use headphones, so this wouldn't solve the original posts issue. I am not familiar with what technology platform PS is writ...

Re: Learning the theory behind finding an optimal fingering?

Thank you! I was anticipating something similar to your answer. I definitely have a ways to go before I start figuring out my own fingering patterns...and lots and lots of practicing to do as well.

Re: When working through the Rookie Bootcamp, when are the courses supposed to unlock?

I think I've got a working routine for myself now....without needing to know when the course would have unlocked naturally. From looking through/previewing the course materials, here's what seems to make sense to me: 1. Reading Music - Staff Notation (Rookie). This content seems to follow roughly th...
