How do you take out parts of a song (guitar or drums, etc.) without affecting the rest of the song? Is there a program that can do this? I'm talking about actual songs that have been ripped to my computer (off a cd), not ones that i have recorded. Thanks a lot.

Im pretty sure it cant be done. You could maybe target and reduce certain frequencies, but that will affect the whole file.

Actually, if something is in stereo, you can cut out either the left or right. An example of this is van halen 1 which has almost all the guitar parts through the left channel.

True about VH1. I was able to cut the guitar mostly out of the songs (excepts a few parts where the guitar is centered) and use these as backing tracks, when converted to mono file.

Unfortunately, this would not apply to drum tracks, that are almost always on both sides.
