I have some sheet music that I'd like to change to tabed music using guitar pro 5 does anyone know how to scan, convert the muisc in to something that GP5 can read and change into a tabed readout? I'd rather not have to manualy enter each note into the program.

After searching around I found a little program called sharpeye2 it scaned the music and converted it to a musicxml file which guitar pro can read. Very cool and very quick. You can go to their website and download a fully operating version that last for 30 day for free. It cost $170 retail. So for the next 30 days I will use this free version and scan all the sheetmusic I got. Oh the web site for the download is

Hope this helps some of you all as much as it's going to work for me.

Thanks for the info, phill. I've got some old Larry Coryell transcriptions that are a bit too advanced for me to spend the time with converting them. This might be just the ticket!

However, I got a "page not found" error when I click on your link.
