By now, we're hoping that you all have upgraded to 2.0 and had some time to play around with it! Feel free to comment below and let us know what you think of it! :D

We're going to be rolling out some more updates within the next few weeks. After spending some time with 2.0, let us know if there's anything else you guys would like to see added.

This would probably be a pretty big upgrade, but I would love to see the ability to type in my own notes over the bootcamp lessons. Like a big red note to myself that says FINGER CHANGE, for example. That's where I got to trying to print the bootcamp lessons, so I could write in some notes and practice...only to find I can't print the lessons.

Secondly, and not really and upgrade, but I really hate it when the number of music measures changes from line to line. For example, lesson 16 on Lean On Me, the first line has 7 measures in it. On the second line it changes to 4 measures, and the "follow along the tempo line" suddenly takes off. I find this hugely distracting. I immediately get flustered and lose my fingering and bam! Song over :x I'd rather see a more lines down the screen and have the tempo line be consistent.

Just my $0.02 Love the program, I'm enjoying it so far. Although it got pretty hard in the intermediate level :o

Hey Russ,

I will look into the possibility of annotating the sheet music. I actually don't think it would be too hard to do actually.

I also agree that when the score has different sized measures, it's hard to keep up. I believe our music team was forced to do it this way because of an old technical limitation our system had. I'll bug the team and see what kind of resolution we can make.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Take a look at into to Staff Notation. There is a practice song that is not a song but all the different keys played in the lesson.

I moved the software to a new laptop and it seems that I don't see the top 25 list on the dashboard like I use to?

Yup, we use to have this on the dashboard and in the store. We have changed up the dashboard to be a more overall progress and activity center. You can still see the most popular and new songs in the store though.

I didn't mean the most popular songs but the top 25 leaders on the score board, that part seems to be missing?

I just checked on my old laptop and the leader board is present in the 'My Playground" tab, but missing on this laptop? Anyway to get it back?

Could it be the screen resolution? The new laptop has less resolution?
