A second method is being written, this time for pianists, its release is planned for 2020.
Guitar Pro est le logiciel qui m’a permis de progresser à la guitare ! J’ai toujours apprécié de pouvoir ralentir ou accélérer la lecture des tablatures, de pouvoir visualiser plusieurs pistes à la fois et d’avoir un rendu sonore qui n’a cessé d’évoluer au gré des années. Je l’utilise encore systématiquement pour composer des morceaux, écrire des partitions pour mes élèves ou bien intégrer un visuel sur mes tutos Youtube.
Bref, c’est pour moi absolument le must en la matière !
