Okay, so as a musician, I am very happy. Found you guys after listening to your podcast on YouTube. I initially only wanted to do some structured jazz guitar (I just finished JustinGuitar's website, and he basically ends where jazz begins), but I think I might learn to properly play my synth like a piano as well, given that the piano course and roadmap look really solid. Probably the most valuable function of paid online courses is presenting a whole skill roadmap, as opposed to disjointed YouTube tutorials. I am also very glad to see the amount of online community-building you guys are doing. As a self-taught musician who doesn't go out much and lives god-knows-where, it's nice to have an option to come and chat - although I'm yet to use it! As an IT analyst, however, I must say: the video interface is in serious need of revamping. It looks like it was iteratively built by 3 different people, and ended up being very functional, but completely disjointed. In the attached screenshot I highlighted all the different interface spaces where controls are found - there are a total of 7, not counting the play button, which makes looking for the specific function you need at the moment highly frustrating and unintuitive, because it could be in any of them. Also, the icon for the button that turns on the notation doesn't make any sense - I spent a few minutes trying to find it on several occasions. The exact same icon is used for fullscreen... Ideally the most used buttons should be in one space, probably in a line at the bottom of the video + one expandable list for all other icons. Given that you have live notation, a piano roll, a guitar fret, AND a loopable waveform, AND subtitles, it's crucial to present all those elements in a logical way. Anyway, my interface nagging aside, I'm pretty happy with the video and course quality so far, and will continue practicing until I suck less! So that's great. Thank you! -A.
