Alright so i want to record something with audacity. I'm planning to use a usb microphone. How would i go about this the cheapest way possible. I don't need studio quality but i just need the job done right now. Would it be possible for me to just borrow a buddies rock band mic and plug it directly into my computer and hit the record button on audacity or do i need to get other special interfaces and what not.

It works okay. Just get your comp's inpiy selection rihght and away you go. Beware of latency when you record a second track but its easy enough to correct.
I pick up my guitar and play
