    Default Guitar Pro and online tabs

    Wondering what other guitarists opinions are of the guitar pro software and the overall state of online tabs?

    My guitar teacher in Va Beach hates when I use online tabs. Says they are more often than not totally off base. I think most are okay but I am pretty new at guitar (1 year).

    I like the guitar pro as it helps me with the actual rhythm of the song.

    All thoughts are appreciated.

    Guitar Pro is a really good program. I don't read music and I am a totally self taught player, and I find it helps me a great deal. Sure some of the tabs are not always accurate, but for the most part they are pretty good. If it helps you improve as a player, then I don't see why your teacher would be upset. Like you, it helps me with the rhythm and tempo of the song and the feel of notes and chords, which is tough to judge from just a tab sheet alone. If you like the program and it gets you interested in playing, then keep using it.

    you are at the mercy of who ever wrote the tab for guitar pro... and like anything, it can be way off sometimes.

    take the time to search and play different versions. look for live video of people playing the song when possible... the longer you play, you will be able to tell pretty quick if it looks and sounds correct.
