I'm going to set up my guitar (which has a tremolo) for Eb, so that I can alternate between E and Eb with the simple use of a capo.

I'm having this problem. Consider a passage played 3-5-4-3 (just made it up) on any string. In Eb, all you'd have to do to play the same thing would be to go one fret down each (4-6-5-4) on the same string, right?

For some reason, when I tell it to transpose, GP just goes wild and picks different positions and different strings. What I want is to be able to "practice in E in an Eb-tuned guitar", since with the help of the capo it'd be the exact same fingering, just one fret down.

Any idea on how to achieve this?

Thanks!

Tell me if I've got this right, you want to bring the guitar tuning up but keep the pitch? Or keep the fret placement and change the pitch?

It's not possible, GP will go crazy with the fingerings when you transpose things into different tunings. You'll just have to transpose everything yourself, since you already have the tab it should be easy.

Yeah theres no solution. I have had this problem loads of times and its a pain. I just try and trick my mind into thinking that the fret markers are even numbers :P

Basically, I want the program to add 1 to all the numbers haha. I could just do it manually, but it's a lot of files...

I have the guitar pro APP on iPhone, and when you can set the tuning lower or higher, so that the tuning is lower, but the positions/frets are the same. in other words only the sound coming out changes.

What version are you using? If it's GP5, change the tuning and press the check mark that doesn't have the + and - on either side of it. That changes the tuning without transposing. If you choose transpose, it will mess up the fingerings.
