Use the free version of Quicktime 7 to play the .mp3 files on your computer.

By using the A/V controls you can adjust the tempo without changing the pitch. Slow down the selection that you’re practicing.     Click here for a demo movie.

You can also play along using headphones half on. That is, one ear covered, and the other open to your instrument.
