The Guitar Pro iOS version is now compatible with the new Fretlight Wireless Guitar.


Learning to play guitar is something that many people wish to do. You really need to dedicate time and passion to it and never give up because “Everything is hard before it is easy”. We recommend that you take a look at the Fretlight Guitar. It will help you save a significant amount of energy and patience.

Fretlight guitars speed up the learning process by lighting up LEDs to draw the chords and scales right on the guitar’s fretboard, and thus show the player where to place his/her fingers on the instrument’s neck. All guitars are real and beautifully crafted. You can buy the model you want, from acoustic to electric or bass guitar, on fretlight.com.

Using a Fretlight Wireless Guitar with the Guitar Pro iOS app is the best existing solution to help beginning musicians learn the guitar while having fun.

How to use the Guitar Pro app for iOS with the Fretlight Guitar?

  • Find the Guitar Pro file of the song that you want to play on the Internet or on mySongBook.com.
  • Open the file in your Guitar Pro application available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store.
  • Connect the Fretlight guitar to the Guitar Pro app (press the button located on the guitar’s side, close to the input jack – Bluetooth connection).
  • In the Guitar Pro app, open the “Settings” menu. The Fretlight Guitar will appear in the “Device” section.
  • You’re done. No need to spend time translating note symbols or tablature numbers into fretboard positions, your guitar is doing the job for you! All you have left to do is concentrate on learning and memorizing fingering patterns directly on the fretboard. That’s tough enough as it is 🙂

The functionality will soon also be available on the Guitar Pro app for Android.

What can you do with the Guitar Pro app?

The Guitar Pro application is mainly used for playing Guitar Pro files on the go. You can also create your own files with the Guitar Pro desktop versionand read them whenever you want to on your phone or tablet. If you are not a composer, you can import files into your application off the Internet (i.e., files created by Guitar Pro users), or purchase sheet music edited by professional musicians on www.mysongbook.com (mSB tab in your application).

The application also contains the “NotePad” feature which lets you quickly edit a melody or a riff in tablature format. For assistance in the editing process, you can select the option “Play while editing” to hear the notes as you enter them. The music notes can be edited via the keyboard or the fretboard (iPad version only). To share your file, simply export it in GPX format via the “Info” menu. Your composition will be available in read-only mode in the “Scores” section, or editable in the “Notepad” section.

The Guitar Pro application is available in 13 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Spanish, and Ukrainian.

Hi! What are the corresponding keyboard letters / commands while using a page turner Bluetooth device such as AirTurn Ped. It should be „arrow up and down“ to scroll through the GP files. But it doesn’t work. The Funktion Set e.g. for Start/Stop Playing and others work. So it is not a hardware Problem nor configuration issue, iPad and AirTurn device are working correct. Thx, Thomas

Thomas Duflos - mai 2, 2018

Hi Thomas, it should be working indeed, can you contact our support please? https://support.guitar-pro.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Thanks

For the moment, our team will include the compatibility with Guitar Pro 7 in the Android version. I can’t tell you when the Fretlight wireless compatibility will be available. Sorry.

Boatntrain - sept. 2, 2017

Justin Fisher - août 5, 2017

When is this coming to Android?

linda - août 8, 2017

Hello, for the moment I cannot tell you when it will be possible. Our team tried to integrate it but this feature needs a huge changing in the app that’s the reason why we haven’t done it yet.

Hi.
All original fretlight app work.
Guitar pro for apple phones does not work.
I turn on bluetooth on phone.
Timer just goes round and round for very long time.
Guitar pro say fretlight not connected even know turn on in guitar pro fretlight wireless ios for phone.
Play song does not show anything on frets.

Please address this issue otherwise I will leave negative feedback and highly not recommend guitar pro 6 ios because of the hardware and or software bug issues at general meetings, by phone, sms, email, flyers, post and on web forums to boycott guitar pro products and fretlight instruments completely.

Eric Hagan - mai 23, 2016

I have tried what you listed above and my Fretlight still does not light up when I play the songs. It says it’s connected and I can get it to work with the Fretlight apps when I try them. I’m also ha othe same issue with my computer saying it is connected to my Fretlight by BT, but the Guitar Pro software says I’m not connected. Any thoughts?
