Pros: Most of the notation tools makes notation look and feel very complicated and eerily impenetrable. But Guitar Pro makes it seem easy and completely approachable - which is very important for those making their first steps in music composition.

Guitar Pro is probably one of the most accessible notation tabbing tools out there. It is extremely easy to master and very comfortable to use as a lean mean composition tool. It is especially useful if you have limited music education and just want to lay down your ideas.

From the user experience perspective - it doesn't get any better. If you know the notation basics - it will take a couple of minutes to get around Guitar Pro's interface. The way the composition process is organised is very streamlined and allows many tweaks without getting tangled.

Ever since the 5th version introduced realistically sounding instrument samples, Guitar Pro also became a very interesting tool for sonic experimentation. Sure, it is very limited in comparison with a full-fledged digital workstations - but it offers an interesting experience, especially from a 6th versions which introduced sound effects.

Cons: User interface might seem dense at first and it takes some time to get used to it.

From a compositional standpoint - every instrument that is not fretted string one - is limited to the guitar-based tuning. Basically it limits the composition process to laying down the basics while fleshing out will require more specific software.

The notation layout itself is somewhat clumsy and got some very irritating traits.

Hot keys are messy and you often get confused over which combination does what. It is not critical but might bring you some discomfort.

Version 6 and 7 often crash, especially if you try too hard with the RSE.

Overall: Guitar Pro is one of the best notation tool out there. It is easy to handle and fun to play with. There are some problematic elements but it doesn't affect user experience in a critical way aside from some minor disgruntlements.

Pros: Using the tab/instrument view is really useful to notate the tones of your guitar into a tab/sheet music, and the compatibility with many other strings instruments(Ukulele, Bass, banjo) make it easier to transport your ideas to other players, even if they are really far from you.

The printing options are awesome too, if you can't afford a printer, you just export your tab/sheet score into pdf format and then can send it to any place so they can print your parts or chord charts.

Also, the playback/loop option is EXTREMELY helpful whenever you encounter a hard to learn, it allows you to go from really slow to the exact tempo you are looking for, so, for practicing your instrument is a really awesome tool.

Cons: There are a few things that can be improved, for example, if you happen to be a producer or an orchestra/band composer, guitar pro will limit you the way you write your music, it does not have a natural flow when it comes to transport instruments(say, many of the brass and woodwind family) so, it might get confusing whenever you have to write something for a trumpet or alto sax player.

Also, the playback or RSE (real sound engine, which is basically an emulation of a live instrument) is not that good enough, compared to other software that is around nowadays, most of the time I prefer to use the midi default playback, because it can get too noisy and unproportioned.

Overall: If you need to communicate an idea with other fellows musician who is not trained in music reading, its a powerful tool, since it has this tab only option, so the musician you are sending the music does not have to focus on anything else than the rhythm and fret positions of the notes you are suggesting.

If you happen to be a music teacher, this program is EXCELLENT for helping your students to train their tempo, help them play with an accompaniment and get used to the metronome and a regular tempo

Pros: About the software functionality: It was and has become even more user friendly to write, edit and play music scores. Not only that: it includes a Chords library that you can use in every single instrument (mainly focused on guitar, adding at the beginning of the score all the chords used). You can make it as simple as you want: tablature, chart or pentagram...or why not, all of them! It includes a great library of RSE instruments that will help you imagine what your music sounds like. Export your score as midi and use it on your recording software on VST instruments. And it's absolutely affordable!

About the customer service: Few years after I started using it at home I started to write music for my church which doesn't have a lot of money to spend on very specific software like this. However, we needed more than one license so we contacted them. Their interest truly was to help us and yeah, completely helped us to get exactly what we needed. Best people on Earth!

Cons: It might rarely crash but it has been improved a lot with the years and updates. Just keep saving all the time as you should with any software you use and you'll be fine. Also the RSE sounds for winds are not good, they're just to give an idea. The interpretation of dynamics is weird mostly when changes are extreme but again, it's not designed to sound like a VST.

Overall: Helped my church to save a lot of money. Great customer service that provided the best solution for our needs. In my personal use, there's A LOT of music written in guitar pro files on the internet that you can get for free, probably written from the original music books that now are almost impossible to be found (and complex stuff, like Dream Theater, just to give an example). They have also launched a service where you can buy popular songs and learn how to play them.

I've improved so much using Guitar Pro, being able to see the notes, and earn licks is so valuable!

Pros: I switched from using Sibelius to Guitar Pro's software and am very happy I did. One of the best parts about Guitar Pro is the library of thousands of prescored songs. I can find almost any popular song that's out there. This is so much better than googling tabs and chords, and my playing has improved a lot because of this. Not only that, but the ability to pick the tracks I want to learn, by soloing specific instruments, makes the usually difficult "learning by ear" method so much simpler. Guitar Pro has also helped me increase my piano proficiency with its instrument soloing feature. Best feature of all is the tempo change which allows me to take things at my own pace.

Cons: The biggest area for improvement for this software is that Guitar Pro 7 took a step back when trying to change the individual tuning of strings on the guitar. There are too many intermediary steps, previously in Guitar pro 6 it was as simple as clicking the guitar icon and choosing up or down on each string. The interface and the method to get there takes too many steps. Hopefully they can add the old option for people.

Overall: Take your time and learn Guitar Pro, it's totally worth it! Tempo control, instrument and backing track control, and an enormous library of prescored music. I've been able to improve in ways I thought I couldn't because of this software.

Pros: This product is really good to write your songs fast. It allows a large number of variants of instruments that gives you versatility at the writing time. The new versions (6 and 7) are a little bit more complicated to locate all the panels, but once you got the way, the process is more simple than before. A light weight product that helps you to write music with a correct syntax, fast and efficent. The option to add sound banks is a great add-on to create music with a characteristic real sound.

Cons: The user interface is not too easy to understand at first time, it took some minutes to know where are all the sets and how to use it. Adding to it, the RSE (sound bancks) some time are too heavy and the software turns slower.

Overall: This software give me the chance to write music too fast, even when i had not too knowledge of music. It allows you to write like string pressing way, giving a good way to save all your ideas in a faster way. The option that have some tabs open is a good plus because it give you the chance to see more information whitout leaving the same screen.

Pros: The program has many functions. It is possible to carry out a set of percussion, wind and stringed instruments. In general, there are about 180 musical instruments in the program. Basically the program is designed for guitarists. Although other musicians can work in it. The program is useful for amateur and professional musicians, there is absolutely everything to improve their playing level. Tablature can be typed from the keyboard, there is support for third-party Input synthesizers, support for MIDI-input, MIDI-export. You can convert files to PDF, Word and some other formats for ease of printing.

This is a great music editor that allows you to adjust, create and listen to music recordings created by this program. It's not difficult to use. If you like to compose and play music - I think that this program is indispensable.

Cons: The only disadvantage, probably, is that to work with Guitar Pro Program you need to have at least some skills of solfeggio (at least know the duration of notes and sizes) - If this is the case it will be much easier for you.

Overall: Improve my skills in music

Pros: I have been playing string instruments my whole life, cuatro (latin instrument), acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin and bandola, and guitar pro has been with me for a long time. It has helped me in perfecting my guitar skills and to write down music for all of my string instruments.

Cons: I would really love if there was a version for linux since as a programmer this is the system I usually use and guitar pro doesn't work in there.

Overall: As a musician guitar pro has been an extreme help for writing music for all of the instruments I play but also to perfect my skills with them, I would really love a linux version because the lack of it has really been limiting.

Pros: I've been using Guitar Pro for awhile and it has always pleased me, its a powerful tool if you are a pro and if you are amateur it's good as well.

Great for music producers, composers and pro players.

If you're an amateur it can help you too because the TAB section will give you all you need to play your music if you don't know how to actually read a partiture

Cons: The live instrument emulator is not good enough, compared to other software, maybe you'll rather (jus like i do) to use the MIDI default playback

Pros: The tools contained within Guitar Pro are instrumental in creating musical compositions. My favorite feature is the "Scale Finder," which essentially identifies a scale in your random jumble of notes and steers you towards a better composition. I've been using Guitar Pro for over a decade and I've found that I keep coming back even after trying other music composition programs from time to time. The ease of use is unparalleled in the industry- somebody with zero musical knowledge can pick it up and start writing songs.

Cons: Some of the older versions were a bit buggy, though that seems to have been fixed. I genuinely have no complaints, however, for the modern version.

Overall: Guitar Pro allows me to translate my song ideas into a tangible form which I can share with others. I've used it in every musical collaboration I've ever participated in and can't imagine its absence or trying to use some other program.

Pros: - It requires few computer resources.

- Cleaner and more understandable interface

- Lighter and runs faster.

- Good guitar sounds

- You can play the guitar with the tabs.

- It has speed tools and looper.

- You can connect the guitar directly to the computer.

Cons: I have nothing negative to say about guitar pro. It is an excellent program for the study of the electric guitar.

Overall: My private guitar lessons have improved a lot since I incorporated this program into the lessons. With guitar pro I can see the progress of my students individually. Performing and repeating the fingering exercises. I also work on musical reading with the instrument. Guitar pro has allowed me to raise the technical and musical level of my students.

Pros: I've been using Guitar Pro for a looong time. So far the best software for writing down your music composition. It's easy to use, the tools are pretty self-explanatory if you know music theory. It offers a variety of tools to write the music, use different instruments, apply the real sound banks in your composition, use different tuning etc.

Cons: It has some bugs considering midi playbacks, sometimes the sound starts to overlap.

Overall: I've been writing all my musical pieces in GP for the last six years.

Pros: It allows you to write melodies in sheet music even when you don't know how to read this music notation.

It has a simple interface that facilitates its use to both beginner and professional musicians.

It's compatible with Musical Instrument Digital Interface protocols.

It has a vast library of instrument sounds.

Cons: The writing of percussion instruments like drums become really tedious and annoying. Therefore, the software should have a different interface to facilitate this process.

Importing files inside the software translates in many cases into disorganized scores that require manual fixation by the user

Overall: It has allowed me to become a better musician, helping me understand music notation and serving as a platform to write down all my musical ideas. I have used it for many years now and I can't imagine using a different software for the same tasks.

This helped me to learn to play new songs and also to improve my guitar skills

Pros: The best thing i like about this software is that it has a library of thousands of both popular and unpopular songs. I always use Guitar pro to look into chords when i'm playing the guitar in parties and get togethers with my friends. It is easier and more accurate than googling for tabs and chords.

Furthermore, it is also very easy to use as it can even edit music notations in many instruments such as the keyboard which is another instrument I use.

Cons: One issue that i have faced when using Guitar Pro is when tuning my guitar. sometimes it doesn't give accurate readings. However, this does not happen all the time.

Also, i find the later versions with more errors than the previoes ones. For example, the software has crashed when i was using it.

Overall: Guitar Pro has helped in improving my guitar skills immensely. Also, it has benifited me in easily being able to find the chords or tabs of the songs i need. I would highly recommend this software for beginners as well as for pros.

Pros: For someone just starting to learn how to play the guitar it is such a helpful tool, ever since my teacher recommended it my skills started improving, specially by playing with back tracks (something that allows you to practice keeping the rythm and keeping with the beat). Practicing on your own with a sheet of music paper is nothing compared to practicing along beats from this software, it has been a gamechanger.

Cons: I have nothing bad to say about guitar pro, it is without a doubt such a helpful software for me and my music teacher, I made an incredible jump on my skills ever since I started using it.

Overall: Guitar pro is just amazing, it has really been a gamechanger for me, it has been as helpful as my music teacher and ever since I started using it my skills have been improving at an amazing pace, it is just unbelievable.

Pros: This software is one of the best things that happened to me when I was learning how to play bass, mostly for working on my rhythm skills, practicing on your own without a good track is a big handicap and this software gets rid of this issue. It is also amazing for writing your own music, which is something that halps you develop your musician ear.

Cons: This software is a bit overwhelming when you first start using it. If it weren't for the fact that my music teacher served as my guitar pro instructor I would still be trying to figure out how most of the tools worked.

Overall: Even if guitar pro is a bit intimidating at first I highly recommend that you give it a try, the difference in my music studies was enormous when I started using this software, I truly recommend it.

Cons: Guitar Pro is totally great, but i think it could improve the sound of some instruments to make them look more real, like for example the sound of the metals (wind instruments), this is one of the most difficult to emulate.

Pros: I picked up a free trial of Guitar Pro a while back when I considered writing my own music. I play the piano, so I was worried that the software would have its limits, but it functioned quite well for me! Guitar Pro lets you create and edit sheet music to your hearts content, and contains all of the necessary symbols, clefts, beats, and notes you might need. I'm a casual musician, so I don't have a burning desire to use any over-the-top mechanics, but the fact that they are available is nice.

Cons: I used the free trial, so I didn't get to utilize all of the software before said trial ended. But I enjoyed what I saw.

Overall: Guitar Pro is great for creating and editing sheet music of all kinds. I used it specifically for piano, which didn't pose much of a problem despite the name of the software.

Very accurate and totally realistic sound engine too.

Overall: Too awesome for words, learn from it, teach with it, jam along with it, whats not to like?

When you consider how much a simple jam track can cost and here you can learn your part, knock out the solo track and play along.

Pros: I've been experiencing Guitar Pro since their very beginnings, when I was a guitar enthusiast. I was taking guitar lessons at the moment I started using the software, it was an amazing complement, helping me learn songs I wanted to play quickly. What's also great about GP is the fact that you can find many resources online from different people around the world, making it easy to find whatever you want to learn how to play. It is also a great tool for musicians who like to compose, it helps a lot to have a sense of how you want things to sound.

Cons: The software might not be as user friendly as I would like, at least when it comes into composing on it, although, I must say that I am not a professional musician either, and many of the tools regarding composition are much more familiar for actual musicians.

Overall: It helped me learn how to play the guitar, with a fun and pragmatic dynamic.

Pros: Allows you to see the songs with score and tablature at the same time

lets you go step by step

allows you to edit with simple clicks, compose and listen directly with the hundreds of professional quality sound effects of guitar, bass, drums, wind instruments, etc.

Although its name indicates "guitar" you can configure it for bass, ukule, among others.

Cons: You must have a PC with very good features and it is recommended to have a dedicated sound card. Let's install it has in 5 pc, but if you want a lite version or for a single user you will not get it

Overall: I went from playing a few songs with internet tablatures to understanding scores, and even composing my own cancones, I use it even as a backingtrack

Pros: I dont know how to read notes so guitar pro has been the best aid for learning songs by replacing the notes with the fret number. It is a great way to learn guitar and has loads of ad-dons to improve the experience like realistic sound effects on the instruments.

Cons: It takes abit of time to learn the program in full especially when it comes to making your own songs and has a decent price on it but it is well worth the money.

Overall: Great application for beginner to advanced guitarists

Pros: Guitar pro is a program for beginner musicians and for advanced musicians, it is easy to use and very useful. Guitar Pro has helped me to improve my work, with it i can create my own tablatures and adapt it to different instruments, i can also listen and adapt the tablatures of others.

Cons: The program should still improve the emulation of some instruments, but everything else is very good, I recommend it.

Pros: GuitarPro is a software that allows you to edit tablatures, transcribe them and even download them, directed for guitars and basses, however, it supports and reproduces other instruments that are always in MIDI format, which makes Guitar Pro a great tool for your musical creations , but it is also excellent as a learning tool for those music lovers who want to have a better performance when playing guitar or bass.

Cons: In spite of being a very easy tool to use, for those who are totally inexperienced in the execution of the guitar or bass or for the reading of tablatures, this software can become a bit complicated.

Overall: This software is for guitarists, bass players and musicians in general, who love to capture their creations, it's great.

Cons: The interface can be a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it the music should write itself.

Overall: We have used it in our music school for writing all types of arrengements I really recommend it.

Decent software for the price

Pros: The catalog of songs and the variation of each song is quite impressive, overall. Sometimes you have to download a couple to find a version you like. There is an option to insert an MP3 of the song to play along with it, but the options to time it with the music have room for improvement.

Cons: I wish it didn't cost so much for subscription to download the tabs. The User interface could be a bit better as well.

Great music editor!

Pros: This software saves immense time by scoring music and creating a polished finished product. Also allows for multiple instruments to be tracked.

Cons: What I like least about this software are the problems that can arise with the program after updates on windows or mac software. Such as random shut down and loss of work.

Overall: I am a musician and use this program to track my guitar playing instead of transposing music by hand.

Good product, but not cheap
