5.0 out of 5 stars More than a TAB Writer,
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)I bought Guitar Pro 5 to supliment an old music writing programme that only wrote in standard notation - the aim being to convert then print music in TAB notation. However, I have discovered that Guitar Pro does more that that! Perhaps the most useful feature is its ability to download from other web sites arrangements of songs that have already been transcribed in Guitar Pro format. Not only can you download, modify if required, and print off these arrangements, but they can also be played on your computer. This allows you to fade whichever instrument you play and then jam along with your computer while reading the TAB that advances with the song.
Overall, a practical and easy to use piece of software for the guitarist who will never need to buy a TAB music book again! The price is good as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing guitar software,
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)Guitar Pro is such a brilliant programme, i had a copy of it, but has been corrupted (wasnt a legitimate copy). It is extremely accurate and you can essentially write whatever you like, guitar, bass, drums, saxaphone, and a load of other sounds. it uses real sound, so a guitar sounds like a guitar, rather than power tab, which is just a synthesised sound, i think. it is well worth the money, definitely buying another copy when i have money. You can add several tracks, so if your in a band and you are composing the whole song then you can compose it all and print the parts off as proper tablature and give it to them. it also comes with the manuscript version of your tab above it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Pro 5,
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)I just love GP5. It is such a good way to learn pieces and so far I have found all the music that I have searched for. Some of the technology in the programme will almost certainly remain unused but to be able to repeat 1, 2 or however many bars required, over and over and at a slower tempo is such a good way to learn. Add to that a complete backing track to play along with and I think that GP5 is tremendous value for money!
Ps the Guitar tuner and chord boxes are great tools also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than I thought it would be,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)I am really very impressed with this software. From reading the reviews I knew it was going to be good - but having purchased it, it is even better than I thought. It does so many different things, it produces scores, it is a tool for learning tunes - and it does them all very well. All those things that are difficult in most midi programmes to reproduce - like slides and grace notes, hammer ons, quintuplets etc it can do in a straightforward way - which makes everything sound so much more like a realistic performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job,
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)Editor good, does the job and has all the features you would expect. Did have some problems with the `Realistic Sound Engine' distorting when the tab is played but the MIDI works fine.
I would recommend if you are think of this look at `Power Tab' (google it) as it does most of the editing work you need but is limited in the files it will accept. The other one to try is TuxGuitar.
The difference is Guitar Pro should be support but as yet I've had no updates or for that matter needed any.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it.,
This review is from: Guitar Pro 5 (PC) (CD-ROM)Bought this for my budding rock star and I did think it was rather expensive. In fact I laughed when I saw the price but I will eat my words as it was worth every penny. I am not sure how it works but he spends hours with it and say's it is brilliant. His guitar playing is exceptional (don't know if this is sheer hard work or down to guitar pro but it has certainly worked for him).
If you have a budding rock star and he or she asks you for this, don't baulk at the price, just buy it for them.
