I enjoy the pratice assistant. I have a question about it.

Is there a way to display the number of hours played in a long period of time. For instance, how many hours did I pratice this month, this year, last month etc… ?

I can see the pratice time for this week, but I didn’t find how to do it for other periods.


@mynoud - you can click on the dates on the bottom of the bar chart to enter a different time frame then click on Filter to display the results.

@Tom_b Thank you. It works like a charm.

The practice assistant is perfect for me. It keeps me on track for what is important to learn. Really a Godsend.

If ever there is a tweak to the PA in stats I would like to be able to view my total hours practiced from day one as a continuous item that grows over time and then a filtered view alongside it like week, month, year, or mod.

Thanks for everything!

Hi Justin! Love your courses, only just starting but I’m really excite to keep going with the guitar :slight_smile:
Just quickly wanted to mention something I noticed: I’m not sure if this is the case, but I worry that the screen blinking like that when a practice routine has been completed might be triggering for people with photosensitive epilepsy? Maybe just a sound would make the practice assistant safer for everyone? Just a thought. All the best, can’t wait to continue with your lessons, thank you for providing these great resources!

Hi I’m having a Weird issue with the practice Assistant. When I click on the start button the screen on my phone goes black I need to touch it to see video or close it by this time the timer is running leaving me less minutes to practice. I tried shutting down always use video assistance and still does it. Can anyone help.

Hi, I think the practice assistant is a good way to keep my practice regulated, but I have one question about it. If I want to do 4 times 1 minute chord changes, do I have to make 4 different items for that or is there a way to quadruple that in the routine itself? Thanks in advance!

I had been using the practice assistant a little when it was introduced, but only now really taking full advantage of it’s features. After reviewing the Practice Assistant video again last week, I realized that I could add the songs and associated videos as items directly from the song video pages. Before I had added my own song practice items with the names of the song, but this is so much better.

I am also starting with the module practice items and then duplicating and editing out the completed and mastered items and adding songs for practice as I progress in the module, plus adding in a few items for extra practice.

The Practice Assistant is a real benefit to me to keep myself honest as to how much practice I really do and not just what I think I do. That encourages daily consistency and help with moving forward with my progress.
