Hey guys I'm trying to learn a guitar solo by ear; it doesn't follow a "key", so its becoming a bit difficult to follow it not per note.

Is there any software out there that will tell me what note is being played or maybe slow the whole thing down?

This is the solo btw

Thanks for the help :)

There is a program called Slowblast that slows down music without changing pitch. It isn't free, but it would work.

Do you use VLC? If so, the arrows on the left and right allow you to slow down/speed up the music, can't recall if it changes pitch though.

If it helps, I made a quick midi and then imported it into powertab (which decide to mix flats and sharps). It also automatically generated the tab so I'm not sure how good the fingerings are. But, here you go:

Open whatever you want to change, then select all, go to effects, choose "Tempo." It will let you change the tempo by a percentage or you can change the bpm. Same thing, really.

Amazing slow downer also works very well. I have another one at home that I can't remember the name of but it also has a karaoke function that cuts out the lead tracks (fairly well) so you can jam over stuff. I'll post it tonight wehn I get home because it's also ................FREE!!!! (I found it it's called BestPractice).
linky link!
Download BestPractice - GPL Software - Tucows

You're welcome.

I have some music recorded somewhere, from like 2 years ago with my old band. I mostly just have the vocal tracks, though. My equipment sucks too, so the quality is horrible. I might dig around and see if I can find it. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.:rofl:

how did you do the whole midi conversion thing? or did you just figure it out and play it on a midi controller? :lol:

Definitely not a genius! I've just had tons of practice and I teach theory/ aural skills at a community college.

Anyone can develop a good ear with a bit of training.

I've been blessed/cursed with perfect pitch with regards to note identification, but there's no reason that a good trained ear with excellent relative pitch can't do it better.
