    they are both nice, but dont write power tab off:

    a)power tab is free, guitar pro costs money unless you DL it
    b)guitar pro uses an obscene amount of system memory, and the files/program are much larger
    c)theres an abundance of lute and violin power tabs on UG, not so many for guitar pro

    although in guitar pro, you can have all sorts of different instruments. thats cool, since now i dont have to run out and buy an album or whatever whenever i get recommended a band

    GP has a better interface + it's better for playing along since you can have a whole bunch of instruments.. basically a full band.

    Back on topic, I have to say yes, Derelict Herds sounds A LOT like Riverside. I already mentioned something about it back when Watershed was released.

    well if you listen closely, youll notice that opeth sounds VERY similar in guitar pro as they do on .wma. also, you havent responded to me in that previous thread.

    I actually downloaded Guitar Pro and checked this out... I got a tab for A Fair Judgment to see if this guy is right... first of all, there's no vocals, and second of all, it uses midi to synthesize the music. It's like if Opeth did the DOOM soundtrack. I fail to see how this is an accurate representation of the actual song.

    I think that they sound much more boring in tablature, even with Guitar Pro's fancy synthesizer. There is just a big shortage of harmonic content, dynamics, "feel" which midi cant emulate, instrument personality, and of course voice. Major factors for most people listening to music, but not to some apparently. The whole riffing system of rock music is becomes tiring quickly without a good tone.
