I would like to hear some of the ways you go about setting up your computer are cell phone to make slowdown happen. I am not to good with computers. I have a laptop , and android Samson cell phone. I saw on my phone on the Goggle play music app . i could listen to, not sure if i could download it are not for $9.99. / month . There must be other apps, are other ways i could set up maybe. Any advice please, . I cannot pick up notes fast enough and i want to learn the tune on the fiddle.

You can buy the Amazing Slow Downer for $10 from the Google Play store, and there's a free version you can try to see if you like it. If you search for it other similar apps will come up too.
On a Windows PC, Windows Media player has variable speed too, but you have to search around a little for it.
If you listen to music on YouTube, it has variable speed playback too, under "settings."

I use the free app, Music Speed Changer and like it quite a bit.  You can download it from the Google Play store.  You can change speed, key and loop any section that you mark.   I have lots of mp3 files on my phone and you can click on any of them and load the tune into the app.

Windows has a slow down feature in Windows Media Player.  Load the music file into WMP and right click anywhere on the WMP page.  That brings up a menu selection.  Go down the page to "Enhancements", find "Play speed settings".

If you go to YouTube and select a tune you should notice at the top of screen there are3 dots. Click on the dots and it will give you a drop down screen. Select playing speed that you want. Anyway it is on my ipad

I'm not sure what it costs but I use Transcribe! to slow down and loop. It's worked great for me for years, but other programs mentioned are probably similar.

WyoBob - I saw that one and it looked good, but I already have ASD, which was the pioneer in this field, so I don't need another app for the amount I do this. Very handy when you need it though.

Ditto what Bob and Frank say. Speed Changer works pretty good for your phone and YouTube gives you some slow down options as does Windows Media Player.

Best Practice

I use Best Practice slow downer available free at the link above. It will change speed without changing pitch (although you can change pitch too if you want). It works well.
