Here's a part (measure 3) of "Tango En Skaï" (Roland Dyens) I am trying to write out.

"Tango En Skaï", m. 3

You can see there are 5 grace notes before the A, how would I add this in GuitarPRO?

Here what it looks like when I try and add a grace note before.

Please help if you know how.

You can do it Sibelius!

As of Guitar Pro 7.5, it is not possible to add multiple grace notes in this way.

Grace-note before the beat: A Grace note is an ornamentation that consists in a very short note played before an other one. In Guitar Pro, you can add a grace note for each string. However, it is not possible to set several grace notes on the same string. A grace note does not count for the bar duration and for the rhythm display.

(Guitar Pro 7.5 User Guide, page 92).

  • is there any software I can use that would allow me to add several grace notes before a beat? Thank you for the answer.

    @jumpmanjo I know MuseScore can do it. Likely others (especially Sibelius and Finale), but you'd have to check.

  • Noteflight does support 5 grace notes on the same string. [![enter image description here][1]][1] [1]: i.sstatic.net/SsGf8.png
