Just want to ask why make the song stop with too many mistakes?

That makes it hard to practice a song since it makes the player wait for the music to stop and wait for the option to retry or quit.

Hi there! Thank you for the feedback and sorry for taking so long to get back to you. The 2/3 seconds where the song grinds to a halt before the fail menu pops up is more of a style choice. I feel it's a better transition than just stopping the song immediately and popping the menu up and I don't think it wastes too much time (it should be exactly 2.5 seconds).

This is something we will bare in mind going forward however and if it feels too obstructive/time wasting we will change it :)

It is better to have those 2/3 seconds than just immediately stoping but I was talking more about using the "R" key to restart instead of the menu like when you reset a race in a racing game even if you can (and probably will a few times) watch the car crashing before the option is shown with a menu.

Thanks for reading my comment and replying.

Ahhhh, I see what you mean. Adding in a quick restart button for practice is something we could implement quite easily. I'll look into adding this for the next version we release :)
