What is the .GP5 file type?

GP5 files are commonly associated with Guitar Pro, a music making application developed and marketed by the French company Arobas Music. Enriched with a powerful audio engine and a series of helpful tools like tuner and metronome, it allows musicians to create, edit and play tablatures for guitars, basses and similar stringed instruments.

GP5 files are used to store musical scores on Windows, Macintosh and Ubuntu operating platforms. They contain all necessary sound information on the instrumental composition so that you can play it back in the application and check how it actually sounds. It is possible to create your own tablatures in the .gp5 format and distribute them to other musicians.
