I wanted to make my dad an old school 4-part harmony Gospel album for Christmas. I'd never used Audacity or anything similar to do mixing. Anyway, I thought these two songs came out the best... They are also the most banjo-focused.

On Uncloudy Day, banjo parts are:
Chord strumming--Deering Sierra
Melody--Gourd Banjo
High Harmonies (come in on second vocal verse)--Cedar Mountain "Brainjo" with Nylgut strings

On Simple Gifts:
Chord Strumming--Deering Sierra
Melody--Deering Sierra
Counter Melody (in on second verse)--Pisgah Rambler Dobson

You might like Transcribe too. Slow down to a fraction of original speed with no loss of pitch. Great program by Seventh String.

Those came out really nice, Jeremy. Thanks for posting :-)

Audacity can also slow songs w/o change of pitch (or adjust pitch w/o change of speed....or both at once up down high low). One caution, be sure to save your original, and make changes to a copy (save the original twice, once under original name, and once under a "copy" name....been there forgot to do that, ouch). You can undo changes, several levels worth, backing out in reverse order to the order you made the multiple changes...but only if you do this before closing Audacity and the song session.
