    Would James Randi compose on Guitar Pro?

    In all seriousness though, I've had to learn some songs in the past that were composed on guitar by non-guitarists. Literally the hardest stuff to learn ever because it just doesn't feel right, no natural flow so it was like a leap into the unknown on what was coming next,

    WWJRD is a great question to ask yourself in all situations.

    I use GuitarPro (technically TuxGuitar) when I write, but it's to tab stuff I write physically on guitar. Years ago I composed within GP but I don't much anymore. It's easier to get my ideas out on a guitar than fumbling through what I think sounds right on that program. The version of TuxGuitar I have is really unintuitive so it makes me spend as little time as possible with it before I go mad.
    C'mon son.

    a buddy of mine uses GP to compose when he gets stuck in a rut. Writing his guitar parts by hand without an instrument in hand helps him break out of doing the same things with muscle memory. He may not stick to exactly what he wrote when he tries it on the actual instrument, but it's effective at getting him around habits of writing the same way.

    Came to say, "Yes, I compare my shit with the stuff the pro's do, but I only use it as an aspiration, not as what is required from my final product, because I don't have the time/means to produce anything like that."


    But now, nah. I compose stuff in my head, and do my best to relate it to weedmongers and bong-ripping experts, who'd rather smoke than learn what a dotted-eight note can do for a riff.

    Yeah, some of this guys riffs was IMPOSSIBLE to play , and yet I have learned parts of this song below which is, technically, the most complicated stuff I've ever played ( I had a video of it earlier, until I cleansed my YT channel a couple of months ago)
    But the "unnatural flow" as you call it, makes it really difficult to just learn certain riffs, with weird fingering positions and stuff

    Probably when they decided that they wanted to get away from writing the same riffs that come naturally to them (and everyone else) on guitar.

    It can be a good way to break out of habits and break new ground.

    If it sounds good, it is good, after all.
