    What does guitar pro do?

    You can slow it down, speed it up, put difficult sections on loops. The loops can be adjusted easily for speed control allowing for a zero increase in speed to any increment you like.  In addition, the tabs can be modified by any user. For example, I post the violin tab, at a latter date another member can add in guitar tracks, and another mandolin. The tabs can be modified by the bluegrass daddy community to create a fully tabbed song. My explanation is probably lacking, but I am sure a you tube search for guitar pro would be revealing.

    Is it like a software package you buy?

    Yes it is. I have been using it for over a decade now. It is kinda expensive, version seven at 75 us dollars, but it will last you for a very long time. A 30 day trial version is available.

    Guitar Pro is good but I prefer TablEdit for fiddle. It’s more versatile and does fiddle tabs really well.

    I like tab as a reference but I never got to where I could rely on it entirely.

    I use Tabledit for tabbing also. Amazing slow-downer for listening.

    Ah, Mr John Cockman. I absolutely love your website and lessons. I use it every day. I am hoping to generate interest in guitar pro as a community project. Different instruments can be added easily to the song and different takes on the fiddle can be added. Not only can you practice the fiddle, you could practice the guitar and bass for the song. Another thing is that in your example tracks, you often get fancier than the tabs you offer. I am hoping that some kind soul would be able to tab those variations into the guitar pro as well.

    I am interested – although thus far I have only posted once.  I agree with Jason that often you do get fancier that the tabs and I can’t always figure out what you are Playing.  I think this could be fun.  I bought amazing slowdowner and I love it!  I love this website and the people on it.

    Wordpress is finicky with the files it allows for uploads. I would have to try to modify the code. You can email it to me if you’d like, and I will link it. I think that would be great.

    Currently BluegrassDaddy is not open-source. However, if the market starts going that way, I would likely use Band in a Box and TablEdit as my platform.

    I have thought about creating a second-tier membership that includes support for BIAB files and the Tabledit TEF files, and also an option for Skype lessons. That may definitely be something for the future!

    yippee support for BAIB all for that. What about a buy, sell,  or swap link for Bluegrass Daddy.

    to adjust the speed go to the looped blue arrows. There you can easily increase or decrease your speed settings. To repeat loop a difficult part right click mouse over the section you want to work on and press the blue loop button and adjust the speed to your liking.

    I have not figured out how to tab in the nuances of Johns playing but it is decent for a practice tool.

    It really is! I opened these on my computer and I can appreciate the work that went into it. Folks, if you want to try Guitar Pro for free so you can open Jason’s files, here is where to download it:
