What is a GPT file?
A GPT file is a template created by Arobas Music Guitar Pro 7, a music score application. It contains a musical score for an instrument used as a baseline by Guitar Pro users to create other scores (.GP files).
Guitar Pro is a music score application that enables you to create, edit, and listen to scores for instruments, such as guitar, bass, piano, or percussion. The software comes bundled with GPT templates and allows you to create custom templates.

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Arobas Music\guitarpro7\My Templates
NOTE: GPT templates do not contain actual audio data. Instead, they store instruments and musical notes simulated as music by the Guitar Pro engine in the software.
