So, I’ve been thinking about this…
The current results (might change a bit) are:
50% for Two Weeks
33% for Three Weeks
17% for Monthly
For me personally, I think two weeks is fine for the “Easy” songs as many of those you can just play along with the tab once you’ve practiced any tricky parts a bit. However, I’m a bit worried about the Medium and Hard songs getting done for most people in two weeks. I don’t want people getting discouraged that they are falling behind the pack. Obviously these are Josh’s ratings of the songs, but I’ve had a look at some of the Hard songs and I can tell you that it would be a struggle to master some of those in two weeks for most of us. Now, those are a ways away, but I think even then our skill won’t have overcome the time needed to master them quickly. A full song of Billie Jean (in “Hard”) for example is going to be a challenge technically and for endurance.
So, what I’ve been considering is these two things:
Leave it at two weeks as that seems to be the poll winner and just see how it goes.
Plan to allow 2 weeks for “Easy”, 3 weeks for “Medium” and 4 weeks for “Hard”. We are half-way through the Easy songs. There are 28 Medium songs. There are 11 Hard songs. That would mean the challenge gets extended by roughly a year.
Personally, I think I’m leaning towards #2, but keen to get others thoughts on this. I’m not sure if others had considered the difficulty scaling and the impact that might have on their preference.
