Fretboard Gamescreen

    Some ideas on how the actual game screen will look. The objective of this screen is to 'name the note' given a string and a fret (answers would be shown below).

    Couple of thoughts:
    1. Not too sure I like knockout's '1' with the chunk missing in the corner. Might change it to the lowercase 'L'.
    2. Border colours aren't finalised or maybe I'll remove them altogether. Idea was to bring in colour association so after playing the game a while, you'll come to learn 'string' is red, 'fret' is blue, etc.

    So, some feedback would be awesome.. :)

    I really like this idea.
    The way all of the layout links is really good too, with the lines on the left and right change relevant to the number.

    I actually quite like the 1, but I can see that its a bit Marmite. The Cyclone numbers are pretty nice & would work here.

    Only negative is the diagonal lines at the top & perhaps the colours. The brown needs to go browner if that's your colour choice imo.

    It's unusual, sure, but it’s clearly a ‘1’, and numbers this big don't have to be boring.

    Thanks for the feedback chaps.

    @Ryan Good shout on the diagonal lines, I think they're probably too strong and can be dropped back, or even removed altogether. Will take a look at darkening the brown too. Heavily inspired by Jason Munn's posters – I love his colour palettes and simplicity.

    @Stephen Thanks and I think you're right – they don't have to be boring! :) Will explore some alternate condensed fonts too, any recommendations?
