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.
