Guitar Pro version 7.5.1 is online. Among the most anticipated new features, we bring you the new display of tempo when you play a score in screen mode and compatibility with Fretlight Wireless guitars. Install this new update to take advantage of the new features.


New features :

  • Compatibility with Fretlight Wireless guitars – Fretlight and Guitar Pro have teamed up to bring you the synchronization of your tabs’ content with Fretlight Wireless guitars. Designed for beginners, Fretlight guitars facilitate the learning of a song by lighting up LEDs on the fretboard to indicate where to place your fingers. Our iPhone and iPad application is also compatible with Fretlight Wireless guitars. Click here to find out how to connect your Fretlight guitar to Guitar Pro.
    You will need Bluetooth 4.0 or higher to connect your Wireless Fretlight guitars to Guitar Pro 7.5. You may read these articles for Windows and macOS to check if you meet the minimum requirements.

    New option to remove a single file from recent files is in last update ( for me not possible.

  2. Gerald - August 31, 2018 at 7:43 am

    Dear team,

    Could you include a night/dark mode? is really difficult to spend hours with a tab and the strong white light from the monitor.

  3. Thomas Duflos - September 4, 2018 at 10:45 am

    Hi Gerald, thank you for your suggestion, I have sent it to our dev team. But I advise you to use night shift on your computer, or a software like Flux https://justgetflux.com 😉

    Hi Vojslav, you can contact our support here: https://support.guitar-pro.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Thanks

    Maybe I’m going crazy, but where the f is the member login on this website? I already own GP7 but all I see is a trial download with email requirement and a buy option.

  6. Antonio - September 16, 2018 at 2:11 pm


    If I try to update guitar pro 7.5 to 7.5.1 on W10, after the download, I select “install and restart” and an pop-up message appear telling me that guitar pro is running and I can’t finish the update.

  7. Teo - September 23, 2018 at 6:37 am

    Legato slide is still unnatural, It sounds like it goes up stair not like smooth slide.
    When I saw the line improved rendering of legato slide, I was hoping this issue is fixed.
    Or is it that I need to make totally new file to fix the problem in the new version?

  8. Lewis Childs - September 25, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    If I update to Mojave will GuitarPro 7.5.1 work?

  9. linda - September 27, 2018 at 9:13 am

    Hello Lewis,
    Yes, Guitar Pro 7.5.1 will work well with Mojave.

  10. linda - September 27, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Hello Antonio,
    Can you please contact our support for help here:

  11. linda - September 27, 2018 at 9:18 am

    We do not have a customer area for Guitar Pro 7. You can retrieve your license here and download Guitar Pro 7.5.1 for your computer here.

  12. linda - September 27, 2018 at 9:20 am

    Hello Teo,
    Can you please send your feedback to our team here.

  13. JabaTheHut - October 8, 2018 at 6:34 pm

    Like Gerald I have mentioned a dark view for Guitar Pro for sometime now, I basically can’t use it for more than a few minutes, and I always have to minimised it. MuseScore, PianoFromAbove, Transcribe! and even riffstation is usable.

    here is my suggestion in screenshot form.


    I’m actually stuck in Guitar Pro 6 because it’s a little bit darker than GP7 which is all blue.

  14. Thomas Duflos - October 9, 2018 at 1:34 pm

    Hi, thank you very much for your suggestions, I have sent them to the dev team.

  15. Mark - October 14, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Lyrics editor is still a massive dissapointment, always has been.
    It’s like GuitarPro has no idea how guitarists want to enter lyrics.
    We don’t want to have to create an extra track, we just want to write words on the page under the chords.
    The program doesn’t need to fix them to the beats, it just needs to leave them where we put them.
    The Text option already does this, but unfortunately it puts the words above the bar instead of below it.
    Just give us a similar Text option under the bars and all problems will be solved.

  16. Thomas Duflos - October 16, 2018 at 10:06 am

    Hi Mark, thank you for your feedback. You can move and place your text freely just press on the + key of your keyboard in the “Lyrics” window and it will move the text where you want to. Thanks

  17. Frank - November 5, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    I think a free text box would be a great addition, especially for teachers seeking to explain things with their Guitar Pro creations. I am also having troubles maneuvering text to where I would like.

  18. Thomas Duflos - November 6, 2018 at 9:37 am

    Hi Frank, thank you very much for your suggestion. I have sent it to our dev team. Thomas

  19. Jörg - December 17, 2018 at 3:00 pm


    could you include in a further version or as an upgrade to create play lists for tours and Excercise List for guitar/finger trainings. That would be a great addition I am happy to pay for

  20. Thomas Duflos - December 18, 2018 at 9:57 am

    Hi Jörg, do you mean that you would like to get exercises included in Guitar Pro? Here is a download link to our free Guitar Pro Method if that’s the case: https://downloads.guitar-pro.com/gp6/Guitar-method-en.zip Thanks

  21. MMM - December 23, 2018 at 3:35 pm

    One little annoying thing that I have noticed, is in the “section” thingy (shift+ins.). If I make a typo, for example if I type “CHorus” instead of “Chorus” (which happens to me all the time), I’ll have to add a space to the beginning or the end of the corrected word in order to fix it. Otherwise it just brings back the typoed version of the word. I suppose it’s because the word is saved, which is a really handy feature, if I just knew how to type.

  22. Thomas Duflos - December 27, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Hi, yes indeed the entries will stay on the list, and if you want to get rid of it, you can start a new file and it will disappear. Thanks

  23. Konstantin - January 23, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    It would be nice if you added the function to automatically analyze the sound tracks of the finished song and automatically adjust the equalizer and effects of each sound track so that all musical instruments can be clearly heard.

  24. Thomas Duflos - January 24, 2019 at 10:22 am

    Hi, thank you for your suggestion!

  25. Konstantin - January 26, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    Is it possible to open a damaged file?

  26. Thomas Duflos - January 31, 2019 at 9:59 am

    Hi Konstantin, you can send your damaged file to our support team and they will take a look at it, thank you: goo.gl/tq6163

  27. Gordon - August 4, 2019 at 3:12 am

    Will guitar pro 7.5 run on MacOS Catalina , need to know before updating as can’t go back.

  28. Thomas Duflos - August 6, 2019 at 10:49 am

    Hi Gordon, yes Guitar Pro 7.5 will run on MaxOS Catalina.

  29. Cooke - October 16, 2019 at 12:15 am

    I know it’s a long shot, but please add the ability to use nested tuplets. It would also be nice to be able to have different instruments playing in different time signatures simultaneously.

    I realize these are pretty niche things, but it would be cool to have them nonetheless. Oh, and please make it so pressing 2 on the snare staff line uses the rimshot like it used to in previous versions, and not a side stick like it does now.

  30. Thomas Duflos - October 17, 2019 at 1:00 pm

    Hi Cooke, we are working on the nested tuplets it! I can’t tell you when it will be available but I thank you for your message. 👍
