I am looking for a piece of software that I can play along to. i.e I load up the tab and it shows where I should be placing my fingers and on what beats.

I am looking to do this with tracks by bands such as RHCP

Is this what guitar pro does or is it only for people who want to write their own music?


Yeah, guitar pro and powertab formats allow you to play along. Check out tux guitar, it'll play both files and is free.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I use powertab. You cant add drums but at least its free.
