I am a guitarist and to practice I listen to songs that I'm trying to play and attempt to mimic them. Ideally I would like to be able to set repeating loops of specific sections that I can practice these sections over and over and over. Also, there is software for other platforms that will allow me to slow down playback without distorting the pitch so that I can practice slow and gradually speed up.

Does anyone know of such software for LINUX??

JohnVV,

Thanks for the links. In the mean time I found Audacity which looks like it has all the perks. In about 30 seconds I installed it, extracted a song from a CD, and figured out how to slow it down 50% without changing the pitch. Nice stuff!!

I do indeed have the livna repo enabled. What does the -freeworld tag give me? I also found that yum install audacity works.
