Writing music, printing .gpx files

UPDATE 2012-10-27: I have updated the .gpx viewer to recognise silences! Download the updated version. Note: if you’re only interested in printing .gpx files, download guitarpro-printer.zip and follow the instructions in the README.txt file. I have been playing with my last band for over half a year now. From the beginning the idea was to write […]

I wanted to edit the video to remove people that were reflected on the window, so I wondered if I could do that on Linux. I imagined it […]
