I'm an avid user of Guitar Pro Software.
I must have written well over 200 original songs using Guitar Pro, and I've transcribed countless covers from other bands (such as The Mars Volta, Tool, or old Muse tunes).
To say that I was a bit excited to see there was a Guitar Pro App coming out is a little bit of an understatement.
As with everything else, Guitar pro has it's issues (generally in the technical difficulties category).
Guitar Pro 5.2 (the Windows Version) has crashed on me well over 700 times while using it. The app hasn't crashed on me at all.
Moving on, is this app any good?
Well if you look up above, you'll see I gave it 4 stars. Even though the program isn't perfect, it's still one of the best Tab Apps around.
It allows you to learn songs anywhere. Heck, you could bring the thing with you (along with a guitar) and just learn songs on a Road trip or something.
The fact that it is so portable is just astounding.
And plus, the cheap price ($5) makes it a really decent deal to try out.
I'm enjoying it, and I recommend it. But once again, it's not perfect. If you expect to be writing symphonies with this thing, think again. It's a read-only program, so you can only learn songs with it.
...and it still hasn't crashed on me yet!
I stand by my 4 stars, and I think anyone who wants to learn music anywhere, should try this app.
As well, it's great for metal and classical guys who like to practice riffs and scales over and over. Just shove the app on repeat to your exercises and boring scales, all while on the run!
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
