I have a couple programs I use.

GuitarPro - Tab program - You can enter tab, change tempo, loop it. It has a speed trainer, starts the tab you are learning out slow, loops it and slowly speeds it up.

Band-In-A-Box - You can setup chords and chord changes, styles, and background instruments to practice improv.

The Amazing Slow Downer - I think this program is what you are going to want to get for what you described. You can set start and stop points anywhere in the song, loop it, change the tempo and pitch. Its a really cool program, unlike most audio programs when you slow down or speed up the audio, you get minimal distortion. It also has an EQ, with a Karaoke setting which almost eliminates the singing so you can hear the instruments better.

Hope that helps.

You could use goldwave its free and you can loop certain parts and speed it up and slow down.

Josh's programs are definitely more music learning oriented though, I have used the guitarpro trail software and it was good I just don't have $60 for it at the moment.

I tried audacity, because it was free, and for this type of stuff it sucks. The Amazing Slow Downer is AWAY better, I think well worth the $50.
