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!

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.

#11
Ok guys. Design wise, its complete. Just working on the programming side of it now. Should take a few days *hopefully*

Any more ideas of what you want etc?

Yeah, it's a cool program but not immediately obvious what it's actually for.
#15
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,
#16
Hello everyone!
I'm using beginner version as well.
Please post some sample programs for beginners
Thanks
#17
Is there presently an option to differentiate between acoustic and electric? That would be nice if not already in place.
I've neveradvocated alcohol, drugs, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

version 4 really confused me......I think that deviding he songs on a easy/med/hard level system would really help

Hi guys, for beginners, learning to play should just come first into the most basic, playing scales first, callouses, and strength and endurance.
#24
I think it is important for beginners to have as much fun as possible. Early on is hard, sucking sucks and its rare to hear any encouragement from anyone except yourself. Some of the more monotonous parts of playing guitar (scale grinding, chromatic exercises) might be a turnoff early on.

But it will make the transition from suck to rock faster!
"If you're looking for me,
you better check under the sea,
because that's where you'll find me..."
#25
I've been doing a lot of 'grinding' with scale exercises as I suck and need to suck less.

So is this program basically just a search engine for tabs and lessons on UG?
#27
As a beginner guitarist I would really like to see more under the lessons in version 5

I'd like to see this program... however the link seems broken.

I haven't played much and I think its time to dedicate some serious time to guitar and I have to really start with some beginner stuff that will hook me again. Trying to play Master of Puppets after not playing it for almost 10 years makes me feel stupid especially since I used to be able to play it without an issue.
