I'm not so much a newbie but I don't know much about this program.

I'm about to learn Tears Don't Fall solo, which seems easy enough but I can't follow the tabs because they are so fast, is there a way to slow it down so it plays through it slower and I can learn it easier?
Ibanez RG321 MH
Vox AD-30VT
Ernie Ball super slinkys
Click the metronome, or something like that, and change the tempo.

*probably not very helpful*
just dont play the file. when you think your ready to play with the song, play it then. it you want the tempo slower you have to take the tempo off. its the little note thing with the = sign after it. its different for all tabs so i cant tell you for sure were it is.
