Difficulty setting
« on: September 24, 2013, 10:00:26 AM »

It would be a great idea to put difficulty settings on all the sheet music,  the reason I say this is because there are people of all skill levels and will see pieces that they want to play but then realise that the piece of music is too advanced for them ~ it would be easier to just be able to scroll through the music with just a note of the difficulty beside each piece ~ (perhaps a typical colour system : green(easy) yellow (advanced) red (very advanced) etc.    :) please do this!

This has been suggested multiple times in the past, with the biggest problem being that difficulty is relative to the player. Unfortunately, I doubt we'll actually implement a system like this.

Well, as far as difficulty being relative to the player, here is a rather unbiased system.

...It'd be tedious as hell to implement, though, especially on all of the sheets we already have.

It wouldn't be that hard if you grouped multiple groups together: i.e. 1 star = primer-2, 2 star = 3-4, 3 star = 5-6, 4 star = 7-8, 5 star = 9-10

I think something like this would be amazing (and going through all the sheets would couple well with the Fixing the Sheets project.)

If we are going to categorize the difficulty, we need to let everyone know what the scale is IF it is implemented. It shouldnt be too diffiuclt, But I do agree, that difficulty is in the eye of the beholder, especially given the huge ranges of music that we have... just cause something is classed as "easy" doesnt mean that it is for a particular person.

This is still a bad idea. Even that sheet music plus rating system really isn't that reliable.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

That list is exactly what the Royal Conservatory uses when determining the grade level of a song. That's a pretty widely accepted system. (And I mean, widely)

I've been using NinSheetMusic for several years and I like the display just how it is; I don't care how hard the song is as long as it sounds accurate.  If it's hard that just means I'll have to practice more.  Not sure if others would think the same way, but...
Yeah.

That's kind of how I did it. If I wanted to play a song and the arrangement was hard, I practiced until I could do it :P

I agree with the accuracy in terms of recreating the music... If it is a hard piece, we put in the work for the stuff we love.

Totally
The goal of NSM is not about how simplistic it is for the ease of users - not entirely, at least - but more the accuracy we all do in transcribing and arranging the soundtrack.
