I’m new to this forum so don’t know if this has been posted before but I love the Amazing Slow Downer app since I almost always have to slow the speed way down when learning a new tune. With the Amazing Slow Downer, you can change the speed of the music - from 20% to 200%. You can also change the key (say for viola - @Barry). Available for Windows or Mac. You can play right from a CD but it also slows down MP3, M4P, Wave, Windows Media, and other audio files.
You can download it and try it for free for 30 days – just go to http://www.ronimusic.com. It's very easy to learn and there are some tutorials on the website.
@Fiddlerman - Hope it’s okay to post this kind of stuff – if it’s against the rules just delete and make me walk the plank.

What a great tool. I love it. I am now starting to play along with other music. I even played the Skye Boat song on the keyboard.. trying to make my own back track. Just for me because I love it.
