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.

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.
