Daily challenge scoring is tied to the timing and accuracy of how players interact with the notes on the screen. If you tap on the notes when they are exactly on the horizontal line of the screen (two-thirds of the way down), then you will earn the maximum number of points. You will earn fewer points if you tap on a note when it is further away from the horizontal line. The best way to get a high score is by building up a note streak, which creates a point multiplier – which in turn gives you a better chance at ending up on the leaderboard. If you slow down the notes at the beginning, you will not be able to get the highest possible score since you will not be able to attain the highest possible point streaks.
Sing! Jams allows users to play piano with performances from vocalists in Sing! Karaoke.
You can find Sing! Jams songs in the songbook. These songs have a microphone icon to the left of their title.
There is no way to share a Sing! Jams performance at this time, but we are definitely considering adding this feature in the future!
Please check your internet connection and make sure you’re online. If you’re still having issues, please email support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sing! Jams vocalists are previous winners of Guitar Idol, which is a competition held in Sing! Karaoke to pick default singers for the Guitar! app. To become a Sing! Jams vocalist yourself, simply check out the current Guitar Idol song selections, sing one of the songs, and hashtag the performance with #guitaridol. If you are chosen as a winner, you will be featured as the vocalist once we add that particular song to Sing! Jams.
Simply pause and then move the slider to control the volume of the vocals.
In the pre-song screen where you select the difficulty of the song, you can toggle Sing! Jam vocals to OFF in the top left corner.

No, your piano is working correctly. To use "Magic Piano", go to solo mode and touch the surface of the device with your fingertips. Playing the spiral or circular keyboards will let you chose precisely the notes you wish to play. Playing in Free mode, wherever you touch on the screen generates a pleasing note. You can't miss!
When you are in solo mode (spiral or circular), touch two fingers vertically on the right side of the device screen. If you slide the two fingers simultaneously up and down, the register of the piano will slide up or down (the note range will become higher or lower). To add or remove keys to the pianos, widen or tighten the space between your two fingers. It's that easy!
First you need to already have a Facebook account. Click the cloud icon on the top left corner to bring up the slide-out menu bar. Click on your user name, and then click “Connect” to Facebook. You will be asked to confirm your credentials and give permission.
Yellow dots indicate chords, so be prepared to use more than one finger when you see a yellow dot.
We will fix that with a future update.
There are two different modes that you can use to either concentrate on just playing the correct rhythm of the piece or to challenge yourself more by having to tap the screen in the right place - if you miss the note, it sounds out of tune. Also, if you tap a chord with too many fingers, it will sound out of tune as well.To choose the mode you are using, go to the Settings menu and turn perfect pitch on or off.
There are two things that could be happening.
If you were logged in while offline, or logged in while the servers were down, you can still play any and all of the songs that you own and are downloaded.
