How can I have a rest above a note in guitar pro 6. For a classical guitar song I need the bass note a different length to the melody so I need to know how to split them. the picture explains what I want to be able to do.
You just have to use the "Voices" feature. Guitar Pro allows up to 4 voices on a single track, and each voice has it's own beat count and can have notes that have different lengths.
When a voice is selected the notes of the other voices are greyed out, like on your example.
The last button allows you to display "correctly" all the notes of all the voices.
Arobas published a tutorial video if you need more information.
