Opening GP5 files
Did your computer fail to open a GP5 file? We explain what GP5 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your GP5 files.
What is a GP5 file?
Files that contain the .gp5 file extension are files that have been created with the Guitar Pro 5 multi-track tablature editor software. This tablature editor allows a user to create scores for guitars, bass, banjos and other stringed musical instruments.
The Guitar Pro 5 application also allows a user to track the progress of a piece of music and can be used as a MIDI sequencer. The GP5 files store the scores that have been created with the Guitar Pro 5 software, however these files do not contain any actual audio data.
The Harmony Assistant, KGuitar, Guitar Pro OSX and Linux and DGuitar can all import GP5 files.
Software that will open, convert or fix GP5 files
Try a universal file viewer
In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
