If you’re looking for a great way to notate guitar music – whether it be music of your own or transcriptions of your favorite artists – Guitar Pro is a great choice with lots of useful features. Notation software can have a significant learning curve, however, and that’s where this Guitar Pro course comes in. Veteran Groove3 instructor Gary Hiebner will get you up to speed quickly on Guitar Pro with these in-depth videos, and you’ll be creating beautiful, professional-looking sheet music before you know it. These Guitar Pro videos are for new Guitar Pro users.
Gary welcomes you by introducing the course and providing an overview of Guitar Pro and its capabilities and features. You’ll then be familiarized with the home page and main tabs, so you’ll be able to easily follow along as the course progresses. Learn how to create your first file, add you first instrument (electric guitar), and start inputting notes in no time. You’ll discover different methods for entering single notes and chords, changing the rhythm, adding dynamics and accidentals, and adding more instruments easily.
Next, explore the world of articulations, including palm muting, slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, as well as more specialized markings like tapped notes, trills, bends, and more. Then learn how the Design Mode can be used to tidy up your score, allowing for the adjustment of bar line placement and other parameters.
Gary covers many more topics as well, such as working with RSE Soundbanks (for different guitar tones), adding chords and chord diagrams, Style Sheets (for customizing the look of your tab), adding and notating drum parts, using Guitar Pro as a practice tool (with the speed and transposition functions), adding lyrics, and lots more!
