Im really sorry if this is in the wrong section :_( but i just need a quick answer.

When I record videos of me playing guitar, the sound of me hitting the strings is too loud and can be heard over the amp. I've blasted the amp but you can still hear me plucking the strings. I really have no idea what to do, someone please help me out.

Heres an example - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNCY3DyKLfk

I clicked System Restore and it said "System Restore Is Unable To Protect You".

Don't record with your PC mic. I downloaded audacity, then went Guitar>Pedal>Mic input on the back of my PC. Have to use a small converter to get from 1/4 inch guitar lead to 3.5mm mic input though but they're like £1 from computer/tech shops.

I don't use my amp at all for recording at the moment. It's important to have a pedal or something to plug into first though, it acts as a pre-amp (boosts the signal) if you went straight from a guitar to a PC mic input don't really think it would work.

The end result when i do it is a pretty nice, clear sound.
When I record, I plug my bass into my amp, run a cable from the "lineout" into one of these: http://www.fullcompass.com/product/353162.html into my computer's mic input port... then I use windows movie maker to capture the sound ( you could use anything that records sound from a mic... it just happened to be all I had at the moment)..you could always skip running through the amp, but this way you get to hear what you're recording...
