I'm trying to start transcribing by ear, but the solos are giving me some trouble. I've heard there are programs that slow down songs without affecting the pitch of the song. Could anyone tell me about one (freeware please) that's trustworthy?
get the program Transcribe! it works just dandy for what your looking for.

Pacemaker is a decent add-on for Winamp that can do just that.
I'm having way too much fun with slowing down/speeding up all my music with that.
