I'm playing guitar for my school now but unfortunately, I can't read notes... I have the music for it and I was wondering if there was any programs or something that I could put the notes and convert it to tabs. I thought I could with Guitar Pro but so far, no such luck

EDIT: I think I figured it out but any feedback is still appreciated

You can definitely do it with guitar pro. What seems to be the problem with it

How about you get off your fanny and learn to read music? Did you ever think of that one?

Google tells me that Finale Print Music has a feature that can do this and looking at their website it looks like they have a trial period.

Just ignore all the elistist 'Waaaahhh you need to learn sheet music otherwise you'll never amount to anything' guys, if you want to learn how to read it go ahead but you'll probably hardly ever use it unless you plan on joining an orchestra.

Really?! I learnt how to read music and pretty much rely on it now. Tab is crap. And I'm not in an orchestra, I play hard rock, blues, fingerstyle acoustic stuff. It's not a necessary skill to have but it helps so much more.

Unless you have to sight read it (which I doubt you do based on you're wording) I would say LEARN! It's really not that hard it might take awhile, but even if you have keep repeating those cheesy sayings you'll get there. It's how I learned Paganini's 24 caprice, it just took some time man you'll get it!

How about you use this a epiphany and learn to read notes from a score to play guitar?

I can read music, but can't really adapt it to guitar, but then again I'm not in a school band where this is required as a skill like TS.
