I’m afraid this might a big feature request.
As a beginner, I often I find myself humming along the tune while practicing the rhythm section. I’m trying to cement the chord progression for a given song in my head.
It’d be great if you could give “picking the basic melody” a similar treatment as you have for “strumming the chords.”
I’m imagining you might key in the tablature and that would get played over the chords. (eg https://www.flatpick.com/category_s/2326.htm). You could choose to have the melody come in every time or trade off to practice transitioning between playing the melody and backing.
I’ll admit I have no idea how difficult this would be to build, and I know it would add a lot of complexity to the interaction model, but would be useful to me!
Love Strummachine and grateful that you are actively developing the product, and now community.
