      MuseScore vs Guitar Pro opinions
      Most users think MuseScore is a great alternative to Guitar Pro.
      It is all-round high quality music score editor with extended possibilities of editing any type of tab for any type of fretted instruments from renaissance lute to modern guitar. And much more. The basic understanding of standard note notation is essential though.

      Yousician vs Guitar Pro opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Yousician is still a legitimate alternative to Guitar Pro, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      As somebody else has said, Yousician does nothing similar to Guitar Pro. Guitar Pro is designed to read and write tablature for guitar, bass, drums, etc, whereas Yousician is designed to teach you the basics of an instrument.
