There are 3 separate voices. Voice 1 is the high D-F#-A-G, voice 2 is the middle [eighth rest]-D-A-E-A, and voice 3 is the half notes.

It's an octave clef. It's telling you all the notes written are actually down an octave. Since the guitar is already a transposing instrument where everything is transposed down an octave, it's essentially showing you the actual notes being played instead of the implied octave transposition. So for simplicity's sake you can just ignore it and play as you ...

Due to the lack of low end output that inbuilt speakers can provide, you often need to boost the overall output level of all low instruments such as bass guitars. All electric string instruments on guitar pro have a default 7 band EQ effect in the second effects slot (Shown below). Normally you will need to boost the overall level on this to between +10 and ...

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. By default, you are writing notes on the first voice, you can change the current voice, using those buttons under the tab, between the tab and the tracks : When a voice is ...

Without the file, here are the reasons I can think of why GP's playback could switch to another octave without any change to the notes : The "play this an octave lower than written" symbol (8vb) is enabled but not visible (bug, hidden, you didn't see it ?). Select a note and check on the left panel if it is enabled. There is an octaver effect that is ...

I contacted Guitar Pro support and they confirmed that there is no way to make guitar pro effectively work right on a 4k monitor. As a work around I wrote a script that changes the screen resolution to 1080p for me and logs me out automatically so the change is applied. They did, however, state that Guitar Pro 7 would have this kind of high resolution ...

It's simple: Select the bars you want to transpose one octave higher, like so: and go to Tools>Transpose: Make sure to select "Selection" (So as to transpose only your selected bars). Select which tracks you want to transpose. By selecting "Current Track", like myself, you're going to transpose only the current track, which in my case is bass and in yours ...

If you are wondering on how to get a suitable/optimal fingering position, there are some existing research that develop such algorithms. For Guitar fingers position, take a look at the following paper: http://www.csc.kth.se/utbildning/kth/kurser/DD143X/dkand13/Group7Anders/final/Vladimir.Grozman.Christopher.Norman.report.pdf The algorithm is graph-based ...

Yes, you can use the multi-voice feature. On each track, you can use up to 4 independent voices : the notes can have different duration and independent stem direction. Each number represent a voice (when selected, the notes on that voice are in black, the others in gray) and the last button displays all voices in black. When you edit / enter notes, it is ...

When you move the tuning of the instrument you need to click on the check mark. The one I rounded with yellow: This way the Tab will stay the same with different tuning, and if you click on the left checkmark it will transport your tab to the new tuning.

you can save a screen print or an image copy img,pgn etc, a pdf and zoom it or enlarge it 200% or 400% with any foto programm or picture app as paint etc. I just did download a sheet with very small resolution: I tried to enlarge it: The result was very bad! Than I clicked into the same picture on the webside, made a full screen image and copied it with a ...

I figured out the answer to my own question. On the Track sidebar menu, a setting called "Transposition Tonality" needs to be set to "One Octave Lower" instead of "Same Octave". I don't actually know what this means, but it does appear to have been the problem. The default in a new file appears to be "One Octave Lower", whatever that means... EDIT: TIL - ...

No sorry, none of those features are available in Guitar Pro. There are not a lot of assistants to help creating tabs faster in GP, the only ones I found are for transposition (but only straight ones, by x semi-tones) and assistants for let rings and palm mutes. But they are always looking for new feature ideas so you should suggest them (support@arobas-...

Copy drum track to new file as precussion track Export as MusicXML Open file in Text Editor Look for <fret>42</fret> OR <fret>44</fret> OR <fret>46</fret> Find and Replace with <fret>51</fret> OR <fret>59</fret> Import as MusicXML into drum file Add track to origonal file

You can do it, I just figured out how and also tested it. Export the current GP file as an XML file from: File > Export > MusicXML, Open the exported XML file with Notepad and using "replace all" (using ctrl + H) replace the number corresponding to HiHat (probably 42, 44 or 46) with a number corresponding to Ride cymbal (probably 59). Import this file ...

This looks indeed like the finger indication. But Guitar Pro doesn't do that automatically, so it's the author of the tab that chose these numbers, which might explain why they're strange. It doesn't seem that there is an option in the Stylesheet (F7 shortcut) to remove them. You can change their position (in the "Notation" tab - left-hand fingering), but I ...

To answer the second question, you can use the "voices" feature of GP6 : You can have 4 voices. Each voice has it's own "bar duration count" which is independent from the other. To change the current voice, use the "1", "2", "3" and "4" buttons. When you'll add a note, it will be added to the currently selected voice. The notes from the other voices are ...

Partial answer : The circled numbers are the string numbers and the uncircled numbers are the finger numbers. For example, the first chord annotation asks you to play the F-sharp by placing your 4'th finger (at the 7'th fret) of the 2'nd string (i.e., the B string), and to play the D-natural by placing your 3'rd finger (at the 7'th fret) of the 3'rd string ...

I've been a guitar pro 6 user for years now. You can't load files directly from the web like that, unless there is some hidden feature that allows you to, but not the way you mentioned. However, what you can do is download your file through the browser and set the browser settings(or your download manager) to automatically open the file once done ...

As others have noted, it's likely because your speakers can't play bass well. In my experience, the best way to deal with this is to get better speakers or headphones and compose while using them. I recently wrote a song with cheap earbuds and jacked the bass up so I could hear it. When I had a chance to hear the song on good speakers, the bass was ...

I have the same problem as well. What I do when I want to hear the bass clearly, I put the bass volume to max and lower the other volumes. My speakers aren't really good, so that also has an effect on the voice of the bass. Try to add more bass to your speakers if possible, or just lower the volume of the other instruments. Guitar Pro isn't the best ...

Sorry, this is not possible. It is a problem that I reported years ago and they should fix it in the next version. In the meantime, I don't see any workaround except adding a text note to inform the reader that it's tied, but GP won't play it tied...

By what you explain, it sounds like you want to repeat a section 3 times. You don't need to use a Coda and Segno because a closing repet can be used more than twice as seen in the Guitar Pro manual: Repeat close This symbol replaces a closing bar-line, and sends you back to the last Repeat open sign. A dialog window will open up for you to ...

There is. I can think of two ways. The easiest way would be to write the note as the enharmonic equivalent (Ab) and then click on the change accidental button (icon is a sharp and flat symbol, 5th row, 6th icon) in the side menu or press ctrl-alt-8 on the note to change it to a G#. Secondly, you can use voices (The small 1,2,3,4 at the bottom of the score ...

Guitar Pro has a Let ring feature, which will essentially act as if you have held the note and is common in guitar tab. The limitations of this are the same as the limitations of writing a longer note - it will be interrupted by rests or by other notes being played on the same string, and the note's volume will still eventually decay similar to holding down ...

After some poking around I found the UI feature hidden in plain sight--a scroll bar to the right of the chord diagram. To adjust the fret range, click and drag the scroll bar to the right of the chord diagram. In Guitar Pro 7 the mouse scroll wheel can also be used.

I was able to do this using search and replace in the MacOS TextEdit app. One thing you have to be able to do for this to work is be able to include wildcards in the search field, which I believe most text editors can (not sure about Notepad on Windows). First I created the following in Musescore and then exported the score to MusicXML: For the test, I ...

You should look into using multiple voices (find a similar article for your GP version) - but make sure it's still playable. If it isn't playable, you should look into using multiple instruments. To summarise the article, here's a screenshot showing what I mean (complete with some handy freehand circles). My screenshot is of Guitar Pro 7 so the icons might ...

I recommend you take two steps. One is to find a "Sheet music viewer" application, of which there are many. Grab one which supports a page-turn pedal. Next, either 1) use a PDF editor that can convert to the "negative" of the source file, or 2) use the native operating system of your tablet to specify "white on black" display.
