That’s pretty lame – having them in the new GP7 format so that you cannot open them with any earlier version. Kinda makes me want to pass on upgrading.

linda - 2018-01-04

The Guitar Pro 6 version is now available.

Hello Al, you can display the standard notation and tab. To do so, in the Track section (panel on the right) > Musical Notation > Notation > press the button to select the notation that you want to display.

Wolfgang - 2018-01-02

Thank you for the free riffs, but my Guitar Pro 6 cannot open these files because their endings are *.GP, it wants gpx, gpt, gpp, gp3 …
Which format are downloaded files?

John - 2018-01-02

Thank you. I’ll have to play that 7-2 stretch on the jack another way though.

Paul - 2018-01-02

As a long time user of Guitar Pro 6 I find this pretty insulting. Do not send me any “gifts” which I cannot use with the version of software I currently own.

Mikhail - 2018-01-02

So sad you offer a .GP files for a linux user who can’t open it with Guitar pro 6….
What a shame.

Shane - 2018-01-02

Just downloaded the files, but they’re .gp files, not .gpx, this my GP won’t open them. I’m confused 😉 Is .gp the new format for GP7? so GP users who haven’t purchased the new version can’t use these files? I’m running GP6
