Guitar Pro

Guitar Pro 8.0

Compose music, share scores, and improve your skills and technique

Create music, scores, and improve your skills. Includes powerful, yet simple tools like a scale-validating tool, tuner, metronome, guitar fretboard.

Guitar Pro is a comprehensive music player and composer specifically designed for, but not limited to, those musicians playing stringed instruments (guitar, banjo, bass guitar and so on). With it, you can play files created by other musicians for learning or arranging purposes, and create your own music scores of original music or musical arrangements of songs by other artisits. The end result is a file which contains as many scores as instruments contained by the piece, ranging from acoustic and electric guitars, bass, piano/keyboards, drums and almost any other instrument. The track capacity for all these instruments is awesome: you can add as many as 250 instruments in each piece.
The software contains also several tools for making it easier to create and/or edit music files, like the chord diagram tool, which lets you see the fingering of the chord being played; it also presents you various voicings of the same chord for you to choose the right chord for the piece you are composing or editing. Also, you can transpose the tonality of any file previously created.
A great advantage for those musicians who can't read music scores is that Guitar Pro includes tablature, which is ideal for beginners and students. If you are a musician playing in a band, a solo artist or composer, or a guitar aficionado, this software is just the right one for you.
