I use guitar pro for my backing tracks.

I'm actually recording a cover right now, and I did the intro and outro (synth with acoustic strumming) and the drums with GP5.
It's actually very convincing, especially with the newest RSE, where you can tweak the EQ.
Guitar pro or Tux guitar (if you can't afford the former) are good choices. The tabs section should have good quality versions of tabs (though there can be disagreements...look at all the different Map of the Problematique ones for instance).
