Hey Justin,

A little more feedback after a round of practice.

It would be nice to be able to add notes after the exercise is over (i.e. after the timer expires). I sometimes like to note things like how well did the exercise go which is not exactly a stat per se, but would still be useful to know. For example, I finished the basic finger workout at the first fret tonight and would like to drop myself a little reminder that next time I should move on to starting at the 7th fret and skip a fret between my index and middle fingers.

In addition to the 1/4 note, 1/8 note, 1/16 note subdivisions on the metronome, it would be great to have a triplet option (especially for those of us still working on our shuffle strumming ;-).

It might also be nice to have a way to shorten the duration of an exercise during the practice. For example, there are nights when I have to shorten some of my 5 minute exercises to 3 minutes to make the practice fit in the time I have for that given night. I'd really rather not have a bunch of routines that are just permutations of different amounts of time for the different exercises (Routine A: 5 min chord practice, 3 min finger workout, 5 min air changes; Routine B: 3 min chord practice, 5 min finger workout, 5 min air changes, etc).

Please take this all as just genuine feedback. All of these things are "nice to have" type of ideas. The tool is very good as it is and it will be a great companion to the beginner course.

Hey y'all.

So I decided to keep it free and just be a bit up front asking for donations!

It's public right now :)

@Fetch

Yes, notes at the end is actually very useful... will chat with Dev about that right now.

Yes, also triplets is on the todo!

Shortening in a routine is very hard - we explored some options but not found a satisfactory way to do it yet! But will come at some point!

Appreciate the feedback everyone - thank you! :)

And it's awesome, thanks Justin. I just did a $25 Cdn donation, value definitely received. Now the most important part, user implementation - me practicing!! :)

Thank you Greg and Mari :)

Hope you like it. I've gotta just get the new beginner course finished and I'm going to try and get routines done for all the main modules - even the old beginner course!
