Guitar Pro is probably the best program for reading, creating, & playing along with tablature on the market today.
Nearly every time you see a piece of tablature on a website or a YouTube video the chances are that it has been produced using Guitar pro. To use the phrase Industry standard would be a correct assessment of the program.
Guitar Pro allows you to edit your music scores and tablature for guitar, bass, and ukulele, as well as create backing tracks for drums or piano. This is a most thorough yet user-friendly tool for musicians who wish to get better, compose, or simply play along.
