GuitarPro download site shutdown?
GuitarPro files available for free download. As of this evening, every time I try to pull up the site I get the "Page cannot be displayed" error. I'm wondering if this is temporary or something similar to what happened with the Powertab site?
Doesn't look good right now.....

Re: GuitarPro download site shutdown?

Yeah, it still works. There server gets really bogged down sometimes. I took precautions after powertab went down and went through every page of the guitar pro tabs and got everything I might even consider wanting someday. It took a lot of time with checking the ratings and everything. One thing you always should do with those tabs is check the comments. There are a lot of strange people that use that site to download the tabs just to listen to. Why anyone would want to download midi versions to sit around and listen to is beyond me but they do... and some of them will give tabs 5-star ratings if it sounds good as a midi even if it's not accurate. A lot of times you'll see a tab with 5 stars and when you check the comments it will have 2 or 3 people saying "this isn't accurate at all" and a whole pile of people saying "So what, it sounds really good when you play it". Then you'll check a 3 star tab of the same song and it will have people saying "this is the most accurate tab of this song anywhere" and several people giving it one star because it doesn't have a pan-flute vocal added or something. Anyway, didn't mean to ramble on.
