Well ive been playing guitar for almost 5 years now and i have generally relied on my ear to do the work for me, obviously i read tabs, but for parts im not sure about, i rely on my ear. But now im learning some Protest The Hero (hopefully there are some fans out there) and that is dowright brutal trying to learn by ear. Id say i have about 80 percent of the rhythm riffs, but for the catchy solos i've only been able to tear down one part of the tapping. So after having you read all this i was hoping there is someone extremely knowledgable on computer programs that will help me record songs, tear them apart to listen to, slow them down, or all of the above.

thanks alot to anyone who contributes, Steven aka guitardedsteve

You can slow songs down with windows media player, it's under enhancements, although for pulling them apart and such, I don't know of a program that can do that

guitar pro all the way. slow it down, replay it whatever you want it to do

can turn down other tracks, pan them, change intruments used,
change tempo, use speed trainers, shows you what to play when,
building chords,
everything

Guitar Pro will not help you figure out how to play something by ear

Audacity, it's easy to use and you can use it to slow down songs. 'Ripping apart' music isn't so easy, you'll just have to play around with the EQ, but that can be done with Audacity too I think...

I dont think you can, because the songs are already mixed. Just keep developing your musical ear, and songs will become really easy to tab out eventually

Tascam CD player, if I remember right it can slow down, reverse, cut out vocals, bass, and drums. Audacity will not 'take apart songs' because you cannot upload it and separate the channels and mute those you do not want.

Almost as convenient as Wikipedia, but infinitely more hipster, Dover.
