but they are pretty the same, you can use them interchangeably and there won't be any difference in meaning.

Hi Leslie - I wrote a blog post about this after it was explained to me by my teacher, check it out:

3 ways to say 'but' in Chinese - difference between 不过 bù guò - 可是 ...

Since the differences in meaning are somewhat subtle you will find some differences in opinion on uses. But this did come a professionally trained chinese as second language teacher so I think it's generally pretty accurate.

wow it was of great help thanks
