I got this Queen song that I want to use for my ringtone, but I don't want the begining of the song, just want the acoustic guitar portion.

Is there any freeware I can use to do this?

All U need is Soundforge or any other sound editor. Export ur ringtone out to ur hdd. Then Import to soundforge and do the editing. Del the rest of the part that you do not need. Then, render out as what extension u want. Need not to render as wav, it will only make the file bigger and if the original file is not a wav, by making to wav is no no situation. weird quality.

Im not a Pro SF as Im using other software like Samplitude, Cubase and Protools. Drop me a pm if u require some help.

You may wan to find from download.com. Might have more source of freeware. if not, try some trial ware.

Good evening, Bro Azul ;)

Maybe you can try this freeware, Audacity, the free audio editor.

Excerpts from their website :-

""Features
This is a list of features in Audacity, the free audio editor. For more information on how to use these features, go to the help pages.

Recording
Audacity can record live audio through a microphone or mixer, or digitize recordings from cassette tapes, vinyl records, or minidiscs. With some sound cards, it can also capture streaming audio.

Record from microphone, line input, or other sources.
Dub over existing tracks to create multi-track recordings.
Record up to 16 channels at once (requires multi-channel hardware).
Level meters can monitor volume levels before, during, and after recording.

Import and Export
Import sound files, edit them, and combine them with other files or new recordings. Export your recordings in several common file formats.

Import and export WAV, AIFF, AU, and Ogg Vorbis files.
Import MPEG audio (including MP2 and MP3 files) with libmad.
Export MP3s with the optional LAME encoder library.
Create WAV or AIFF files suitable for burning to CD.
