    If you have an IPhone, iPad or a newer iPod you can get Amplitube, it has a feature that let's you import songs and slow them down while remaining in the original key.

    +1 on Amazing Slow Downer. Helped this guy learn some pretty unorthodox Redd and Gene Moles Sr licks, pretty amazing. Highly recommended.

    Another +1 for Amazing Slow Downer.

    Easy import from iTunes or other media. Every feature you need for accurately transcribing a riff or lick!

    Have it my Mac, iPad. Incredibly useful!

    I use a couple...

    Audacity: Can clip songs to a particular section (or solo). That way I can keep playing the original lick over and over without having to click on my Itunes to go to the same spot again. Good for drilling out a particular bit I think.

    Windows Media: As mentioned above

    My favorite though!
    PowerTabs: Completely free and similar to GuitarPro from what I can tell. Most Powertabs are really accurate and definitely help me out the most.

    I also use TRANSCRIBE. Loop function works great, ability to slow but keep pitch/key, shows basic individual note/chord info, tunable, excellent real-time display, etc. PC or MAC. Well worth the $50 cost.

    Amazing Slow Downer and Capo (I believe Capo is mac-only).

    Capo is the only challenger to Slow Downer I've come across.

    I used Amazing Slowdowner until I bought Transcribe!

    Transcribe! is far, far superior.

    I have checked the new version of Song Surgeon 3 it was a great slow down music software. Their PRO version is tremendous, definitely better than any other slow down music software depending upon how you use it. What I like about it is that you can set up multiple loop point and give each different loops settings... something that others cannot do. Also, there is NO distortion even at very slow tempos well below 50%. The have a free working demo somewhere on there website: http://www.songsurgeon.com.
    Now I started learning guitar at a slow pace then slowly improving until I got the normal speed. Thanks to technology it really make things easier.

    "Best Practice" (don't have a link handy but easy enough to google, I'm sure) is kind of like Amazing Slow Downer, but free. Not as many features, but it gets it done. And free, as I mentioned earlier.

    Transcribe! might have a feature that others don't - I think it's under FX or EQ that lets you put the song in karaoke mode and from the you adjust to the left or right and usually you are really able zone on just the guitar part, while lowering the other instruments out of the mix. VLC has something similar, but not as good.

    This sw has really helped.
