I've posted in several of the Yousician forums about the many obvious fingering errors in Yousician which I find frustrating. Often it's obvious when there's a blatant error, like when a piano chord has fingers in the wrong order and is obviously unplayable with the suggested fingering. But sometimes it's not so obvious, like when the the bass fingering seems to start on the wrong finger, or relys a lot on the pinky finger instead of shifting an extra fret to relying mostly on finger 1.
For example, Guantanamera in level 4 starts with finger 2 in fret 5, and stays there the whole song, resulting in a heavy reliance on the pinky (finger 4). Is that really how you'd play it? It seems much easier to play with finger 1 in fret 5 instead. Other songs will sometimes start with one fingering, then shift to other fingering for identical patterns. I've heard that Yousician fingering is generated with a script, which appears to start assuming the hand is positioned with finger 1 over the first fret and always trys to minimise the amount of movement along the fretboard. I hate that script!
Is this algorithm really what bass players do?
I get that you want to minimise unnecessary movement, but would a typical bass player really rely so heavily on the pinky when the occasional extra fret of movement will end up using the more dexterous finger 1 much more and finger 4 a lot less?
