Very nice start, Thomas! Can't wait for the rest of the keys.

Scales practice would be my #1 request, so I'm glad to see that's being added soon. As far as the C major practice, it's good, but maybe more complicated than it needs to be with a video and 22 lessons. I'd be happy with just the right notes to play in a few lessons. That would make it easier to add more scales more quickly.

Additionally it would be nice to see something similar with chord practice and chord progressions.

Enjoying the software. Thanks!

All 12, 1-octave major and natural minor keys, are complete. There are some things that need to be addressed on the tech end (not my part of the team ;) ), before they are released. We are very excited to get this out to all of our members!

alnyden, we are working on a chords practice course. Creating content for this has been a bit of a challenge, because it isn't as straightforward as scales. We've gone back to the drawing board a few times over the last month, but I believe the music team has finally settled on an approach.

Great news, also looking forward to practising scales like that.

I'd like to request a convenient way to access them, though - either by having a filtered view in the Bootcamp lesson grid or a separate heading (next to Rookie, Intermediate, Advanced tour) for level agnostic exercises like this. Having to seek out 12 of these exercises (and everything else you've planned) between the regular lessons every time would get old very soon. Thanks!

I was thinking the same as Laurensss. Rookie Bootcamp, Intermediate Bootcamp, Advanced Bootcamp, Scales & Exercises - or something like that.

Yes please to scales, arpeggios exercises etc. But please keep it simple.... just the scales, overlay fingering as standard. Just a simple two octaves, no video would do the trick nicely.

No need for lot of sectionss within the lessons... practice this section first, then two together, the up, then down, then the bass is the same as the treble clef and on and on... the major C scale with 22 lessons suffers from this.

I would suggest making each section a single scale, and the whole lesson including all the major, monior etc scakes as one. Much easier for navigation, find the scales you want to practice, not keep stopping looking for, opening a new lesson, skipping passed videos and explanations to get to the simple full scale.

We just need a tab with all scales and execises.
