Pimping Guitar Pro
It's kind of funny because I have never wanted to have adverts on my blog at all. Those google ads drive me nuts on other people's blogs, so why would I want them? At any rate, I have decided to post an advert for a program I feel is invaluable to musicians no matter the level they are at.
I have used Guitar Pro for some time, and I firmly believe it has made my playing much better, and it makes it super easy for beginners to learn songs, as well as other rudiments of music theory. For the puny amount of money the software costs, it is a worthwhile investment in my opinion. Keep in mind that there are literally thousands upon thousands of songs on the internet for this program, which can include (but not be limited to) tracks for guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, horns, you name it. The program shows you tablature as well as the standard musical staff, a fretboard, keyboard, you name it. You can play along as the software plays the song even, and adjust the tempo to help learn those faster bits.
In light of this, I have an ad for their latest version on the sidebar now, just above the Habs Watch section. Feel free to check it out!
