Hello!
I have a small suggestion: i think the difficulty on each lesson should be more visible. As i understand the difficulty is only visible when you browse through lessons in a list. So maybe you could put the difficulty on the "start page" of each lesson. It would make it a bit easier if youve just got a link to a lesson or if you found it by looking through "similar lessons".

Good idea, but I don't think anyone should be annoyed by this ! You don't have to look at difficulty, listen to a lesson, if you like it, even if it's difficult try to play at slow tempos or try to pick up some cool licks that are doable from it... that would be my advice ...
But I agree that it would be cool to see the difficulty on the front page

That's true but if someone links to a lesson and you want to see the difficulty you have to use the search etc ... so it would come in handy smile.gif

I do not think it is necessary but nothing wrong to have it.

Yeah. I agree that it should be more visible. But at the same time, there should be something not to scare people .

Sometimes a lesson is a level 7+ mainly because of the fast tempo or maybe a small part which is really hard. Other lessons are more difficult throughout it. Somehow people should be able to identify these 2 different cases.

I totally agree! It happens to me many times when I browse lessons and I'm watching the main videos, I wonder "what's the difficulty level of the lesson?" and then I have to browse for it again to find out.

That is definitely a good thing to have, it would mean a lot when referencing lessons directly from the forum as well.

Thanks for the good feedback - this is coming ( I agree we should have had it a long time ago though).
