Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

Im "acquiring" Guitar Pro 5 at this moment, from what ive seen its just a more polished Power Tab that has more realistic midi sound and speciall effects for guitars that midi doesnt include.
It also has a tuner and metrenome in it as well as scales and chord diagrams.

I would reccommend it by looking at the demo, but it is $80 if you want to get it legitimately

Powertab is an excellent program and it's free, my hat's off to the author. Guitar pro has the advantage of showing the fretboard and/or the keyboard while playing and it can import powertab files so this is more desirable but it costs.
