Okay so here are a list of programs ive heard good things about and look like they work very well.

Cakewalk SONAR Home Studio 7 Recording Software

So of all these which is the best one and do they all work with a usb mixer or do they work better with an interface?
Epiphone Les Paul Ultra II(
"Epicaster" pimped out strat
Fender Blues Jr.

They should all work with an interface. But first what do you actually want to use them for? Just record a track so you can upload it? Give your guitar a "tube stack" sound? Or do you want to learn how to do the full recording-mixing-mastering thing?

I would consider the last two pretty amateur software, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Tracktion is a simple program to record and do a bit of editing work, but if recording is all you want just use Audacity. Guitar Tracks Pro has all the amp sims and effects so you can get the sound you want with the minimum of gear. Both are minimum-fuss programs.

Sonar meanwhile is the big deal - a full professional DAW, which can take some time to learn how to use but is as advanced as it gets. However as always if you're going to fork out for a full DAW I'd look at Reaper - much cheaper and the same features.

It just depends what your needs are.
