-"is there anyone who doesn't have any experience with it?" would be a much more appropriate question on this forum.:P

-yeah, it's a decent program for working on scores, but it does have it's limitations of course.

-Depends on what you want from a program really. If you're just gonna use it for writing scores, than Audio score pro 3.

For writing scores for lots of instruments other than guitar, e.g. orchestral scores you would be much better getting sibelius or finale. But as a guitar program it's really good, plus virtually all tabs you download off the internet are in guitar pro format these days anyway.

What, you mean actual notation scores? If you mean actual notation, Sibelius would be the best program for writing it like that.

Tab isn't a score, just so you know.

Guitar Pro is annoying in my opinion, but way better than powertab.

Well, it's not hard to figure out - you could probably find a torrent for it easily.

I've got it downloaded to my mac and it's great for importing tabs to learn songs. You can read the tab and listen. The only problem is that it's kinda buggy if you dont have at least 2gb of ram and a fast processer. I've got a G5 Mac and works ok.

I found recently a program called TuxGuitar, that's basically like GuitarPro. You can get the full version for free, and legally. :P
