Re: Better to learn with numbers or letters for the keys (For the Advanced players)

I never used the numbers or letters. It just seemed like a crutch that I didn't want to be reliant upon. I'd just put the cursor on the first note of a given hand position to check that I was in the right octave and go. The only time I'd look at any numbers was when there was a weird finger shift of...

Re: Old Casio Tone Bank CT-700

It's an awful choice but it should work. Why do I say it's awful... it only has 12 note polyphony!!! So, the sustain pedal is pretty much pointless. It also only has 61 keys. It does NOT have a piano action. And, the keys are shiny plastic, un-weighted and springy like synth keys... which is the opp...

Re: Duration of individual session

As a couple of others have mentioned, if you don't play through the exercise but practice only a part of it, that doesn't get counted as time spent. This bothered me until I realized that time spent doesn't matter... ...to you. I expect the application to keep track of my actual total time spent pr...

Re: Incorrect info on lessons completed

So, PGS has been ignoring this for a year and not even having the decency to respond to the thread?

Re: How To Finish the Rookie Bootcamp

You're doing this for yourself, not to satisfy the software, its writers or anyone else - right? A lesson counts if you learnt something, who cares about some boxes on a page no one ever sees. I agree that flaws like this should not be present in the software but I don't agree a lesson is worthless...

How To Finish the Rookie Bootcamp

The graphic on "MY PLAYGROUND" shows that I have four lessons to go in the Rookie Bootcamp, with 49 of 53 completed. However, the Bootcamp page shows 14 undone and the total number is 78. More frustrating still, I just completed 65 (key signature practice --someone like you --Adele) and it apparentl...

Re: Duration of individual session

The plugin should include the ability to track your time spent playing highlighted measures less than the whole piece. You could spend 2 hours trying to get a Bootcamp session to the point where you can play it all the way through, and PGS gives you oogatz for all of that effort. That hardly seems l...
