TuxGuitar is a full featured music composition tool that can be really helpful to musicians, whether they use their computer to compose music or not.

TuxGuitar looks really complex at first sight – at least for music newbies – so we have the feeling it may overwhelm novice users. But the amount of tools available, along with an extensive help section and documentation really encourages you to give it a go.

TuxGuitar features a nicely-designed interface with clear, simple lines that makes music composition tasks into lighter work. Besides composing on the tablature, you can also use a virtual guitar fretboard or piano keyboard to make composition even easier. What's more, TuxGuitar lets you play the songs you compose, using one of the many instruments included in it.

In spite of a confusing first impression, TuxGuitar well deserves a chance from all music composers: it's nicely designed and features many interesting tools.

TuxGuitar supports the following formats

Import: GUITAR PRO, POWER TAB, TABLEEDIT, MIDI,
Export: GUITAR PRO 3, GUITAR PRO 4, GUITAR PRO 5, LILYPOND, MIDI, ASCII, MUSICXML, PDF
