Separate a guitar solo from song

HI. I need to separate a guitar solo and paste it onto a separate track from the original song. How?

separate a guitar solo

You could try Effect > Vocal Reduction and Isolation.

If that doesn’t work then that’s the end. Audacity has no good tools to split a mixed performance into individual instruments, sounds and voices.


Thx…but I managed to figure it out. I just highlighted what I didn’t want, edit> cut. Wish I could have just copied the section I wanted, then pasted underneath the intact tract.

You can drag-select the work and press the wavy line in a vice tool.

I think that has the effect of doing what you did with fewer edits.
