I'm like you, I go with a more old school approach to recording - I also use a Tascam 2488, which is more than enough for my needs. Personally I've never gone above the basic 24 tracks.

First thing - NEVER use your amp without a cab attached.

Now go read the intro to Recording sticky. If you want the sound of your amp, either use your cab & mic it or get a sim of it.
