Hey guys, I have recently found a neat little app (recommended by KillrBuckeye on YouTube) called TuxGuitar. You know Guitar Pro? You know how it costs money? Well, TuxGuitar is like Guitar Pro but free. Obviously some of you will have actual guitar pro, but this program is good if you're not willing to cough up for it.

I think a very slim amount of people around here actually payed for Guitar Pro.

I think TuxGuitar has been known around here for a while.

Does TuxGuitar use the RSE?

RSE does suck, the midi sounds are better.

I payed for my Guitar Pro and it was worth every penny. TuxGuitar is a nice alternative though.

It plays both gp and ptb files. But it messes up loading a few things from powertab songs (key signatures, timing in a few places).

For the most part, its an awesome alternative though. Especially for someone like me that uses linux and has to run powertab on a windows emulator.
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine

+1. It's nice not having to worry about not finding a tab because I don't have one program or the other. I admit though, it feels a bit 'stripped down' at first compared to GP5.

And I can't believe anybody even uses RSE.

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

Been playing around with the RSE lately. If you can get the tones and volumes to balance it sounds much better than the MIDI. Simply hitting the RSE button and pressing play will make it sound like a garage band that can't keep time.
