Guitar Pro 6 Tuning

Request any chord in any tuning, and Guitar pro will display all possible finger positions for you.

Guitar Pro 6 features the newest in playback technology including RSE - Realistic Sound Engine. RSE gives you real time playback of your scores with realistic sound samples taken from high quality guitars and real time effects such as wah-wah. Advanced notation features add drum notation, vocal notation and tablature support for any stringed instruments with four to seven strings. The newest version, Guitar Pro 6.0, includes over 40 new features while improving on those that have made it the most popular guitar tablature editor available.

Known for its ease of use, Guitar Pro allows you to enter notes by using keyboard keys, mouse clicks on an on-screen fretboard or directly through a connected MIDI device, all in just a few minutes. This revolutionary software can handle up to 256 tracks and you can switch from tablature view to standard notation for viewing or editing scores. With automatically calculated rhythms, Guitar Pro works out the note durations for you, and when you play the score, the music scrolls along with you, rendering guitar-specific effects like bends and slides.

Also included in Guitar Pro are a digital guitar tuner, a chord diagram engine, and a scales tool. You can easily import and export MIDI and ASCII tab formats allowing Guitar Pro to be used with a limitless number of songs. Tens of thousands of Guitar Pro format files are available on the Internet. The WAVE Export allows you to convert a Guitar Pro file into an audio file which is playable without Guitar Pro and can be burned onto an audio CD.

With its ease-of-use, versatility and variety of tools, Guitar Pro will have you creating music in no time!


  • Multitrack/monotrack display, horizontal or vertical scrolling, the screen display adjusts to your preferences and score types.
  • Chord Diagram editor allows you to easily add chord diagrams to your score. Ask for any chord in any tuning and Guitar Pro will show you every diagram possible.
  • Scales Tool allows you to view and listen to a large number of scales, from the most common to the most exotic.
  • Digital or MIDI Tuner allows you to tune your guitar for every tuning possible, from 4- to 7-strings.
  • Fretboard (or Keyboard) allows you to view and enter notes on the score. It is able to show the notes of the current beat, but also the notes for the next beat, the complete bar or the selected scale.
  • Metronome gives the tempo while playing a score or even without playing it.
  • Professional Quality Paper Printings can be monotrack or multitrack. This way you can print several views of the same score, perfect for a band.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed July 7, 2013
I have used Guitar Pro Since GP4. I upgraded to 5, which had stability issues (a dialogue box in French opening about 100 instances telling me that there was an exception at a memory address) and that issue is gone in 6.

1) It is way harder to figure out, less intuitive, than version 5/4.
2) It seems to have less options, but it does have some effects, etc.
3) The layout is a space hog.
4) it is unfriendly with soft synths, particularily emulator x3. It likes to suddenly freeze and stop playback; I think I have associated that with 'autosave'
5) Using RSE, sometimes notes wont sound????? For example, 2 snare hits with 2 quarter notes, as a triplet feel, and the second one won't sound.
6) No options to set up the audio. I have an advanced audio system, and I can't find where to set sample rate, etc.

7) Where are the bar cut/paste options like in GP5, where you could select how many bars to copy/cut or paste?
8) Where did the easy to use mix table go to????
9) How come I can't get tablature with a piano grand staff?

I don't like using the RSE because I have a lot of expensive samples. However, The drumkit in the RSE sounds very good--that's the best feature of it. For the rest, i would prefer to use my soft synths. But when you are moving happily along then suddenly--bang! Exception, blue screen of death, all my work down the crapper--I am paranoid to use soft synths.

10) Oddball errors when updating--first, it failed to update the banks, I wasted a lot of time downloading them, then it said--get this--my USER ID and Key was incorrect. It showed them on the screen, and they are exactly the same ones on the product! But I could still use it.

11) The guitar tuner doesnt work.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Step Backwards From v5 August 31, 2011
I've always kind of liked this program. As a way of saving your own transcriptions it was a solid editor. And in playing its own formats as well as those in Power Tab it was a much friendlier interface than most. The transcriptions for my Truefire courses always come in Power Tab (open format, free player) but I would use Guitar Pro to run them since the interface was much more user friendly.

Along comes version 6, and I upgrade. Lo and behold, the ability to import and play a Power Tab file is now crippled. It may import, but if it does, the odds are pretty good it won't play properly. And before you get ready to reply, "It imports and plays for me," take a deep breath and listen to what you are getting. A/B it with what comes out of GP 5 and you will see what I mean. Oh, and you couldn't do this in the trial version so there was no way of knowing that this had happened. There are a number of users on the Arobas forum who actually think these files are supposed to sound like this. Also note that for some reason, some GP 5 files (or from versions before that) don't even import correctly, although I haven't yet figured out what causes that for one but not the other. Incremental/fix version used for transcription/save maybe.

The workaround for these woes, if you have an up to date copy of GP 5, is to import it into that, save it in the Guitar Pro format, and then read it into GP 6. BTW, I figured that out myself - they were absolutely no help in coming up with it. And it's instructive that when the first complaints came out, their initial response was hostility first and silence afterward. At this stage they have barely acknowledged it, and only recently have made some statements to the effect that they will work on "improving" Power Tab support.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crashes May 9, 2013
I truly wish that I could give this program 5 stars but I have recently had guitar pro 6 crash on me for the nth time and it's sent me over the edge to write a scathing review.

This program is great, for the most part. Unfortunately it's glitchy, crashes and the customer support from Arobas is abysmal. Shame on all of you!!

I'm really just extremely mad right now. When you work for dozens of hours scoring out pieces and the program crashes for NO REASON and will not allow you to access the file you can become a bit resentful. It doesn't matter how much I've saved, if GP6 doesn't want to have a file anymore then I can never get it back. And don't go to Arobas if you need help. You'll be lucky if they even ever get back to you.

Hey music lubbers. I wanted to write this review anyway but even more so that GP6 has received some tough criticism. Much of the dissatisfaction is from owners of previous versions of Guitar Pro. Since I'm new to the product I have a different perspective, one not colored by certain expectations. By the way, I'm also a software developer so I can add that to the equation as well.

From my "dual point-of-view" GP6 is both a great musical tool and a well-done piece of software. The slams it's gotten for being unresponsive, hard to use, buggy, etc. are a bit exaggerated. I believe those who have trouble with it don't have computers with the required firepower; it does ask for a fairly modern machine and it's not kidding! Though I've had it crash a few times, this is certainly no worse than Firefox; moreover, the program does very frequent updates that happen hemidemisemi-automatically.

It has a rich and satisfying palette of tools for painting your musical masterpiece. It has a plethora (oh yes El Guapo...a plethora!) of RSE2 instruments to fill up your canvas. Some of them sound great (fine oil paint), some are "good enough" (acrylics) and some are like throwing a crayon into the dryer (uh, don't try this!) Strangely, the best sounding ones are guitars and similar stringed instruments; oh wait, this is *Guitar* Pro, not Bassoon Hero!

I also love the effects/amps you can use to shade and enrich your tableau. They really make a dramatic difference to the sound, just as they do in the real world. You can try out effects you don't quite understand instead of "Daddy, what does a phaser do?" "Well son, it's used to kill Klingons." Yeah, dad's a trekkie, not a musician.

It's crapp at spitting out standard notation for drum rhythms. --As if created by a non-pro player. You'd rarely see this kind of note-blindness inducing notation on a gig. Read more
