Has anyone used it? Is it worth buying? I have a lot of .gp3 files which I cannot access without it.

I used it last year at a friends and found it pretty naff. Yeah it can be useful but I find tab and listening to the song helps more.

When it plays back it is too 'midi' to get into.

I think Guitar Pro is very good. A little fiddly at times but compare the price to Sibelius and you're laughing.

It is also an excellent resource for downloading song tabs and slowing them down so you can nail the solo etc.

It's dirt cheap. Try the demo.

Guitar pro is a brilliant song writing tool in my opinion. It's the most used application on my computer after media player!

Once you get used to it it is brilliant for guitar. If you can't read music and want to write for other instruments in TAB to music it is usefull aswell.

You can buy it for 30 quid on amazon, so its cheap aswell.

I have GP5 its a fantastic tool, i always tab out ALL of my songs or ideas there and then oyu know if you forget them its there to playback to you.
Its also really useful for learning songs as you can alter the tempo, note placement, etcetc, id be lost without it to be honest.
