I just installed Guitar Pro 6 with the 1.7 GB soundbanks. I am restarting my guitar playing and I hope to use GP6 to practice. Amazon, after Cyber Monday, gave me an excellent deal and I thank them for it.
GP6 installed with no problems. I have a Windows 7-64 system, Intel i7, SanDisk SSD, 16 GB RAM, and multi-monitors. For a pic of my system, see the comments section of this review. Before I installed, I ran Windows Update and I also updated several other programs such as Flash and ShockWave.
I just started using the program so I cannot tell you about all it's features. However, I did create a mysongbook account. I bought the Hotel California Full Score for a dollar. My hope is to someday be able to play it, although it will take lots of practice. You must first create a mysongbook account, confirm it through your email, buy the score, start GP6, log on to your mysongbook account inside GP6, then you can open the score inside GP6. There are a number of steps, but it does work.
One thing I don't like about the mysongbook account is that you cannot actually save the purchased score on your local computer drive. You can only "view, play, and print the tabs." This means you must have an active internet connection to be able to load the score into GP6.
However, GP6 does work and has, so far, not crashed on me. Be aware, after installation, you must run your Help > Launch Updater at least TWICE, NOT once. The first time will update your Updater. The second time the updated Updater will update GP6 to the latest version. I just bought the retail disk version from Amazon. It had v6.0.5 on it. The Updater updated GP6 to v6.1.6 r11621 (Feb/12/2014). From v6.0.5 to v6.1.6, the change log shows at least 100 bug fixes and another 100 improvements. Be sure to run the Updater at least TWICE. During the second update, the Updater updates mostly the program which is relatively small at 25 MB. I am currently running a THIRD update which involves improved Soundbanks, about 1 GB in downloads.
Regarding using GP6 as a tool to learn how to play Hotel California, I will probably have to buy additional printed material. For example, the printed material states a capo must be used and I don't think GP6 will mention that. All of these guitar books contain the score for Hotel California. However, GP6 shows there are about 6 guitar, plus 1 bass guitar, scores for Hotel California:
1. 44 Eclectic Hits For Classic Rock Guitar (The Eclectic Hits Series)
2. The Absolute Best Guitar Songbook Guitar Tab Edition
3. The Greatest Classic Rock Guitar Authentic Guitar Tab Edition
4. Classic Rock: 50 Favorites For Easy Guitar Guitar Tab Edition
In order to make GP6 sound better, you may want to install a dedicated sound card, such as the Sound Blaster Z PCIe Gaming Sound Card. GP6 appears to use MIDI and a dedicated sound card will sound better than the built in CODEC audio on your motherboard. I do not have a dedicated sound card installed yet.
The downside, though, is the learning curve. Guitar Pro software is complicated (to me) because it is full of so many options and adjustments and sound selections. Writing TAB is something I have not yet ventured, but I understand it is not difficult.
Overall, I give Guitar Pro a 10 out-of 10.
This software solves this problem by allowing you to listen to a song and transcribe it with the software. You can play it back to make sure you have the timing an notes correct. This is awesome! I work on a section of the song each time I practice and I've already transcribed 2 songs almost all the way through, including the solo.
The software runs flawlessly on my newly built Windows 7 machine. I find it fairly intuitive to use. There are a few things I might do different if I wrote it myself, but I can't complain for $60.
I use this with Acoustica Mixcraft to learn songs. With Mixcraft you can drag a WAV or MP3 file into a project and slow it down to 1/2 speed or any speed you want so you can figure out what the heck someone like Eric Johnson or Steve Morse is playing. Otherwise, it is almost impossible for the average learner to transcribe ridiculously fast solos.
