Beginners song program v5 - Wishlist!

Hey guys, so its that time again where the beginners song program should be updated.

A couple reasons why:
1) The program is getting hard to maintain due to the amount of AJAX being used within it!
2) Theres quite a few bugs, and to be honest, it's probably better starting a new version of it!


Version 4!
The old thread covering version 4 can still be found by clicking this link!

Wishlist
Ok, so first i wanna see if this is something people actually want to keep using. If not, ill leave version 4 online, but not develop it further. However, if enough people want me to make it better, then ill go for it.


This thread is for you to vote on whether you want a new, better, more efficient version of the program, and if so, what you want on it.
after a while, ill take a look at the suggestions and see what I can do with them.

Things to think about:
  • Do you want AJAX to still be used on it? - AJAX stops the whole page reloading, and only refreshes certain bits of the page
  • How do you want it designed? What do you want on the homepage?
  • What information do you want with the songs?

Add anything you want in this thread.
General forum rules still apply, IE no flaming, no spam etc etc.

Never actually tried the Beginner Program, but sounds interesting.

It would be nice if you could offer some sample programs for beginners that might not know a good progression of songs to learn.

I agree!! this could be done if there was a way to sort song by difficulty.

I am actually in the process of compiling a list of the easiest songs to learn on guitar for my students. I only got 3 songs right now but i'm going to be doing a lot more tabbing. Eventually i'll make 3 catagories, easy med and hard. Please check out my website and let me know what y'all think... www.prockressacademy.com/tabs

I just found this program and i'm gonna start using it for myself and my students to see how i like it. There is my one suggestion for now... make a way to sort songs by difficulty.

Yeah, it's a cool program but not immediately obvious what it's actually for.

Noticed on v4 a lot of quite trickey songs were only rated as 1 or 2. Could v5 have some kind of ref, eg
Difficulty 1 time of your life
Dfficulty 2 teen spirit
Ect

And would it be possible to make it mobile friendly?

Anyway just an idea,

Is there presently an option to differentiate between acoustic and electric? That would be nice if not already in place.
